Tara Bromhead started in hospitality whilst studying for her degree in Arts & Material Culture in the UK. On moving to Antibes, France in 2001 she concentrated on a yachting career, beginning with a seasonal position as sole stew/chef/deck on a 22m motor-yacht, followed by a successful winter season in Andorra as second-chef in a 5-star chalet resort. Tara resumed her yachting career and rose through the ranks, progressing from junior-stewardess to chief-stewardess on board a 70m Super-Yacht. In 2005, she decided to transfer her skills to the yacht crew recruitment sector in which she has proven successful and which she finds very rewarding.
She is easy-going & approachable, yet more importantly very professional. Happy to assist potential crew in finding their first yachting position as well as helping more experienced applicants to find new placements. Tara is an expert in matching the correct candidate to suit the Captain and Client.
