When it comes to Hydrographic Recruiting Specialists there are numerous other Recruiting Specialists that talk a good game, but UTM Consultants actually make things happen. They have continuously provided opportunities to me and given me the confidence to grow as a Hydrographic Surveyor. They regularly engage with myself and understand my individual circumstances. I can’t speak highly enough of the UTM Consultants team.

Always provided an excellent service with an in-depth knowledge of our industry and attention to detail including the client's expectation. It makes a huge difference having this level of support.

David Gardener Client Representative at Parkwind
Catalin Cristocea

My contact with UTM consultants started a couple of months ago, discussing opportunities and the possibility of working together. The collaboration was honest and natural since the beginning. In a very short term we actually started working together: a short notice project, my certificates not in place - not such a surprise in our business.

I have been really nicely surprised to see the "We have a situation, we solve the situation" attitude. A lot of things needed to be organised in a short space of time to be completed over and during the weekend. Their way of dealing with any situation faced, along with everything being so clear and organised has made me feel a part of the team. I believe the client was happy too, having a surveyor ready first thing on Monday morning for the vessel.

Catalin Cristocea Hydrographic Surveyor
Peter Major

In fact Richard helped me step into international offshore survey market as a freelancer during a very tough time in autumn 2008, and both Alex and Richard helped me progress in my career and constantly develop my skills. They are very attentive to the consultant’s needs, respond very promptly in any extraordinary situation. They are very supportive in career development, helping to assess your own strengths and weaknesses. I am sincerely glad that they are back to the industry after a long break.
