Experienced Professionals You Can Trust

In ports, terminals and shipyards across the nation, you’ll find our skilled marine tradespeople. They’re shipwrights and shipfitters, marine welders and electricians, pipefitters and firewatchers — 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 marine 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 shipbuilding and marine construction workers with jobs in the marine industry to ensure our customers have the quality workforce they need — whenever and wherever they need it.
