All across Teekay, we regularly hire talented people to join us in our offices and aboard our ships and units. We take the hiring process responsibility seriously, and we NEVER charge people to join us.
Recently, we have heard of bogus “recruitment” companies promising seafaring jobs at Teekay in return for application processing fees, sometimes totalling thousands of dollars. NEVER deal with any “recruiter” who demands such a negotiation; nor who asks for intimate financial information such as account numbers, social security numbers etc.
At Teekay, this is how we hire:
- Via our website at www.teekay.com
- Directly through Marine HR and HR departments and representatives – people who work for Teekay.
This could be at our offices, or at recruitment events.
Teekay colleagues may promote opportunities through social media channels, which always link back to our Teekay.com website or someone with an @teekay.com email address.
- Occasionally through reputable 3rd party recruiters, who NEVER ask for placement fees from applicants.
NONE of our hiring processes require payments by you.
Please share this message with any seafaring friends who have been looking for new roles. At Teekay, we live by our SPIRIT values. We believe in high standards with all our stakeholders inside and outside the company, so if you have doubts about the recruitment process, please double check website and email addresses, and the identity of people recruiting. Good luck with your career search, whether at Teekay or elsewhere.
Your friends at Teekay.
