April 16, 2019 - A consortium made up of Adriatic Marinas - Porto Montenegro and Damen, a global-level company engaged in shipbuilding and super-yachts, is launching a program for recruiting candidates to shipbuilding and refitting yachts that will work in the shipyard in Bijela.
For the Days of Open Doors on April 17th in Bijela (Administrative Building of the Adriatic Shipyard Bijela, 10 am - 2 pm) and April 18 in Tivat (Building of the Army House, 3 pm-7 pm), all interested candidates will have the opportunity to meet the members of the management team, and discuss the company, its plans and employment opportunities. The candidates are expected to bring several copies of their business biographies.
Companies will recruit a wide range of skilled workers: yachting workers, mechanics, pipe workers, engine engineers, carpenters, maintenance engineers, doctors and transport specialists, supervisors (by disciplines), metal workers, but remain open and familiar candidates of other professional occupations.
We are looking for candidates who will share our passion and commitment to the exciting transformation of the former Adriatic Shipyard Bijela into a new service for the maintenance and repair of yachts and mega-yachts. First of all, we are looking for worthy people full of enthusiasm, who nurture the teamwork necessary for the shipyard to embark on a new, successful period of its existence. The willingness and ability to learn and the desire to achieve the highest in their profession are a vital part of this story because that is the essence of the success of the yachting industry, says HR Manager Porto Montenegro Sandra Kapičić.
Benefits for the economy of Montenegro will be significant, as it is expected that more than 300 people will be re-employed in the shipbuilding industry. Bijela, that is, Herceg Novi and Boka Kotorska, are the historical position of this industrial sector in Montenegro, and with this project, the region will again provide recognised services of this kind to the entire Mediterranean maritime market.
The consortium is working on recruiting the initial workforce to participate in the planning and transformation of the Bijela shipbuilding facility into a new refurbishment facility, and for the possible early start of preliminary operations - the provision of certain shipyard services on the current west wing of the shipyard, while the restoration of points and yachts in the eastern part.
