Welcome in Alfa Ship & Crew Management GmbH

Founded as a start-up recruitment business during the 90’s in Germany, ALFA now employs staff across offices in Europe, and Asia. ALFA provide staffing solutions to niche vertical markets and in sectors which other crew agencies are unable to effectively service with a high retention rate.


Our core market areas are Shipping, Maritime & Marine, Oil & Gas, Cruise, Yacht, Offshore Crew and the Built Environment. We source and supply hard-to-find candidates to our clients across the globe, on a contract, interim and permanent basis. Our office locations include Leer, Hamburg and Manila. Our decision to establish and grow recruitment teams in these locations has been reflective of our ambitions to provide specialist industry recruitment services in key locations.


As a candidate or client working with ALFA you should expect to be serviced by skilled, consultative and technically minded staff who are committed to the highest standards of customer care. ALFA is dedicated to training and developing its recruiters to ensure that they can continue to operate as both sector and recruitment specialists. The group is privately owned, has enjoyed year on year growth and credits itself on training, nurturing and developing its staff.
