Since the establishment in 2013, MARPRO has been focused on traditional recruitment of shore-based profiles for steady employment. In the end of 2018, MARPRO launched a new department acting as an employment agency for consultants and freelancers.
Louise Windelboe will be heading the new department and brings 18 years of valuable maritime experience with her.
Louise is originally educated as Master Mariner from Marstal, Denmark and has a broad maritime experience, from e.g. tall ships, lifestock carriers, cable layers, anchor handlers and much more. She has worked for Survey Association as a surveyor the last 4 years and established her own company Pippin Offshore with the intention to work as an independent surveyor.
She describes her motivation to join MARPRO like this “Operating as a one (wo)man company has its advantages – but also disadvantages. The clients often prefer to work with an organisation that can provide multiple surveyors. When I am busy at one job – I can for naturally reasons not accept any other tasks before the other one is completed. As a single consultant, you must continuously work with sales and promotion and that is hard, when you are working at sea for a longer period. MARPRO provides the perfect frame for setting up a bureau for consultants and freelancers, with a proven track record in classic recruitment in the maritime business. The company is well recognized, especially in the Scandinavian maritime business that are our prime focus. I am looking very much forward to join the company and build up the consultant division”.
Managing Director and owner of MARPRO, Jakob le Fevre adds “We are excited that Louise have chosen to work with us for several reasons; She has a deep insight into the maritime business, especially the offshore wind sector, her educational background as Master Mariner and her practical experience is a perfect fit to MARPRO, who since the early start has been promoted as a recruitment company that are 100% focused on the maritime business. Her surveyor experience both from Survey Association and her own company Pipping Offshore brings valuable experience into MARPRO, that will help us to design the solutions and services according to client demand”.
