The job market dynamics in the shipbuilding industry are constantly changing.

The variables are influenced by various factors, such as global economic conditions, trade policies, and technological advancements. For example, with the increase in demand for renewable energy, there has been a growing need for ships that can transport and install wind turbines.

The shipbuilding industry is a crucial part of the United States economy, providing employment opportunities for thousands of workers. According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, the U.S. shipbuilding industry employed approximately 110,000 workers in 2019. The field has a significant impact on the nation’s trade and transportation systems, and the Navy relies heavily on the shipbuilding industry for the construction of new vessels.

Get all hands on deck, and everywhere else.

We have the skilled labor for the critical jobs, with specific expertise for the shipbuilding industry. Each job requires a unique set of skills and qualifications, and all are essential to the construction of a ship. Engineers and designers are responsible for designing the ship, while welders and carpenters build the framework and hull. Electricians and machinists install the necessary electrical systems and engines, and painters provide the finishing touches.

Finding good workers isn’t like it used to be.

Most of us are all too familiar with the challenges presented by the constantly evolving labor market that has been thrust upon us by a wide range of factors beyond our control: supply chain issues, the remote work phenomenon, shortages in skilled labor, inflation, and more. New and changing factors are consistently forcing organizations in all industries to reconsider how they address labor and recruitment. Organizations need to be more nimble and flexible in their approach to fill gaps in production, meet increased demand that an opportunity may produce, or find more qualified candidates to better balance costs with productivity.

Reduce your stress and risk.

When you have an experienced, qualified craftsperson on the job you can rest a little easier and have confidence in hitting your objectives. You also have the added benefit of limiting your risk. This route is ideal for projects and companies needing temporary employment, short-term labor and/or back-office support. Limit your exposure, time demands, and costs associated with finding the perfect tradesperson.
