Let’s Get Started

Experienced Professionals, When and Where You Need Them.

In ports, terminals and shipyards across the nation, you’ll find our skilled marine tradespeople. They’re shipwrights and shipfitters, pipefitters and electricians, outside machinists and painters — and more. Each one is hired through a rigorous process to ensure we’re recruiting the best, most qualified tradespeople. When you partner with PeopleReady Skilled Trades, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that our workers will show up — onsite and on time.

We’ve developed our expertise in the marine industry since 2008: the year we dispatched our first set of skilled marine tradespeople to a shipbuilding project. We’re dedicated to connecting our tradespeople and general laborers with jobs in the marine industry to ensure our marine customers have the quality workforce they need — when they need it.

Safety First

In every process, procedure and program we have in place, we demonstrate our commitment to safety. You can see it in our BeSafe program, which ensures our customers and tradespeople work safely across a project’s entire lifecycle. You can see it in our safety-specific assessments during onboarding—and our safety site visits. Everything — and we do mean everything — is focused on safety first.

Support for Your Success

From marine carpenters to electricians, shipwrights to pipefitters, we have the skilled marine tradesmen and tradeswomen you need. We also can connect you with general laborers. Whatever level of staffing support your project needs, we can provide it. And as a specialty division of PeopleReady, a TrueBlue company (NYSE: TBI), we have the experience, financial support and rock-solid stability you need — and want — in a workforce partner.
