    > Our professions

    A wide range of professions is a reality for Ponant, which is the only cruise company to manage all the stages of its existence, from the design and construction of ships through to their operation and the commercialisation of cruises.  Ponant draws on a network of experts in the areas of services, catering, hospitality, entertainment, maritime and logistical operations. A number of professions are also to be found within our offices, in our various departments: Sales & Marketing, Administrative & Financial, Revenue & Transport, Call Center, Product and Exploitation. Ponant includes a large range of professional branches that are real sectors of excellence. Ponant is the European leader in Polar Expeditions and was the winner of the Victoires du Tourisme in 2016, for the second year running.

    Ponant offers a fantastic working environment: a company on a smaller scale, but with the stability of a large group, a leader in the Luxury sector and with an international reputation. Ponant offers its employees the chance to work in a rich learning environment as a result of its rapid growth and its wide international expansion.

    > Our talented employees

    Thanks to the diversity of their profiles (from secondary to higher education, with training in the maritime, hospitality, commercial or engineering sectors) and the mix of thirty or so nationalities, our employees contribute to our growth. They are Ponant’s primary ambassadors. 

    Ponant has developed a Human Resources policy for its employees in order to recruit them, incorporate them and retain them.

    • As a result of our strong growth, each year Ponant recruits promising talented individuals. "We do not just recruit employees, we select them. We are looking for employees with great expertise, but also whose personality is adapted to the values of our company.”
    • We develop the skills of our employees to accompany our expansion. Each one has their own personalized training programme and we are currently developing the Ponant University (e-learning platform).
    • In order to build team spirit and loyalty, we organise events such as sporting challenges (taking part in races such as Marseille Cassis, la Marseillaise des Femmes and the Hydro Cup: a regatta organised by the Merchant Navy officer cadets, with ten teams in competition); cultural events (as part of our partnership with the MUCEM museum, our employees and their families were invited to visit the ‘Divine Migrations’ exhibition) and convivial events (cocktail parties and entertainment related to our cruise destinations).
