Committed to Quality


People are at the heart of OSM Crew Management, like our slogan says "It's all about People."


Crew Management is the company’s business unit tasked with recruiting, deploying and managing seafarers, offshore workers and other crew.  We have one of the industry’s largest crew supply networks, giving us unrivalled loyalty amongst our seafarers, many of which have been with us since cadetship.


The team, determines the allocation of new vessels and fleets to particular Crew Management offices, based on seafarer availability and client requirements, with the majority of fleets assigned to one of the Global Crew Management offices - Manila, Philippines & Odessa, Ukraine.


The crewing organisation has played a major role in the overall success of OSM Maritime Group, but changes in technology, systems as well as industry and client requirements means the business unit is continually evolving and fine tuning its operations.


In an effort to ensure we stay on top of these changing regulations, OSM Crew Management is continuously improving internal training efforts with a focus on the following core elements: experience, qualifications, competence and continuity.



We supply crew for vessels of all types, both where we carry out full technical management as well as directly to clients who wish to manage themselves. We will tailor solutions to suit individual needs and requirements.


The focus is always on identifying how we can improve service delivery, such as ensuring stringent recruitment checks are in place to guarantee first-rate seafarer performance standards.


OSM Crew Management manages its marine assets by focusing on quality and building up highly competent, motivated and loyal seagoing staff to man its ships.  


OSM has one of best seafarer retention rates in the industry, maintaining a 90% retention rate for the past five years. This has been achieved through having proper recruitment, remuneration, continual training and performance appraisal systems in place.


We ensure that our crew are highly qualified and experienced, so we can fully contribute to your success.
