Voyonic Crewing Limited underwent their ISO 9001:2015 annual audit on the 11th of January 2023 courtesy of DNV. The results are very pleasing and to quote the auditor “The organisation continues to have effective Policies, Processes, Procedures and Work Instructions in place to ensure they can deliver their services in line with client requirements”.
The particular focus area this time around was Team Work and again to quote to the auditor “ The organisation has been affected by a number of external factors over the past year e.g. sanctions against Russia, staff fluctuations and ongoing Covid restrictions. However, especially with regards to staff having to work from home and new staff having to be trained, the well-documented QMS has helped to navigate these challenges”.
With one minor non-conformance and a rating of 4 out of 5 on the Degree of Control scale used by DNV, we are very pleased with the outcome.
Voyonic Crewing Limited continue to be a leading International employment and payroll services provider.
The Team at the Voyonic Group would like to send everybody all our very best wishes for the Season and wish you and your families a very Happy New Year.
We are very pleased to announce that Marika, the Crewing & Operations Manager in our partner office in Malta recently flew to the UK to receive her degree as Master of Business Administration at a graduation ceremony in Chester.
This is richly deserved after all the effort that Marika has put in to her studies whilst still continuing to provide a high quality service to our clients.
Congratulations Marika and well done.

Offshore wind hoped to generate every home in the UK by 2030.
Boris Johnson pledged yesterday that “Offshore wind farms will generate enough electricity to power every home in the UK within a decade”. It is hoped that the UK will become “the world leader in clean wind energy” by utilising the natural resource that we have in abundance as an island nation.
This is great news for the offshore wind energy sector and for the United Kingdom as it moves us closer towards the goal of decarbonising the UK and looking at a more sustainable future. Just recently we were celebrating World Maritime Day with the theme of Sustainable Shipping for a Sustainable Planet and this news is a great step forward for the industry.
Voyonic are pleased to have experience within this sector as we already employ a number of seafarers with full compliance with HMRC guidance. We help clients generate cost-saving efficiencies by approaching employment both ashore and afloat from a different perspective. We ensure we fully understand the operating situation of all of our clients in order to provide clients with relevant and accurate advice.
