Celine Noel, Assistant Crew Manager

Celine

After beginning her maritime journey as a receptionist on-board the RMS Queen Elizabeth II, the 35-year-old, from Nice, France, is now working for V.Group onshore as an Assistant Crew Manager in our Monaco office.

She has spent the last eight years with V.Ships Leisure, progressing from receptionist aboard the Seven Seas Mariner, to Concierge and Second Purser, before heading back to the mainland as a Recruitment Manager and Assistant Crew Manager in the brand's hotel division.

Although she doesn't travel as much as she used to, Celine is more than happy to have settled ashore and take plenty of trips abroad during her holidays.

She said: "Being at sea was one of the best experiences of my life, and although I work in an office on the mainland now, when I'm on vacation I travel as much as I can.

"That's one good thing about this company, if you're a seafarer that wants to move back to land, they provide you with plenty of opportunities to do so.

"As Assistant Crew Manager for deck and engine employees, I work and support the Crew Manager in all administration tasks regarding crew, manning agencies and vessels. It's a hectic job but one that I thoroughly enjoy."
