Columbia Cruise Services (CCS) is to recruit medical professionals for TUI Cruises’ Mein Schiff fleet from this month.
The partnership will see CCS draw on its network of crewing offices worldwide to source doctors and nurses.
“Medical professionals are vital members of any cruise ship operation – especially during a pandemic,” said Olaf Groeger, CCS Managing Director. “COLUMBIA has a wealth of experience in recruiting and managing medical personnel, giving TUI Cruises access to experienced, highly trained doctors and nurses at a time when the global medical industry is suffering a skills shortage.”
Groeger added that it was an honour for CCS to extend its collaboration with TUI Cruises to the Mein Schiff fleet. CCS is the technical manager of the Hapag Lloyd Cruises fleet, TUI Cruises’ luxury brand.
“With recruiting being one of our core businesses, we are looking forward to developing the ideal strategy using our worldwide reach to satisfy TUI Cruises,” he added.
