North Sailing has from the start been a family company, run by three generations. The company has always had great luck with employees, some of which have worked since its establishment and is well aware that knowledge and experience can make a great difference in the whale watching business. North Sailing has also put great effort into recruiting and training new crew members and other staff. It has been an aim of the company to maintain good morale and, in return, people come back to work for North Sailing year after year.
Working towards perfection
Naturally, more people work for the company during the summer as that is the peak of the whale watching season. Therefore during high season, everything must work smoothly and towards perfection, so it’s impossible to put a price on experienced and well-trained staff. However, our team is very active also in the winter. The team in the office has to plan the upcoming year, and there has to be done a lot of work in the shipyard since boat maintenance is a necessity every winter. The jobs are both land-based, including selling tickets, maintaining boats and working at the office or on the boats where we have the captains, engineers, guides and deckhands.
