At Duke, we do everything we can to earn the trust of our industry partners and job seekers. We go beyond what is considered the standard for our industry because we believe you deserve it.

With over 20 years of dedicated and focused recruitment experience for the shipbuilding, and offshore oil & gas sector, we know how to excel in the industry.

We are fortunate to work with some of the largest offshore engineering firms in North America and are proud to say that when they need more talent to fill a position, we remain at the top of their list.


We believe that the best way to serve our industry partners is to get to know them deeply first. We take the time to understand the specifics of each job and what the company culture is to ensure the perfect union between our industry partners and our job seekers.

We are not just another recruitment company filling jobs with a random list of candidates that may seem “ideal on paper”. We interview all our job seekers by telephone not only to qualify their experience, but also to get to know them personally.

In doing so, we help our job seekers and industry partners create the best teams to deliver the best products and services. That’s why we do what we do – we have a passion for people!

What Our Job Seekers are Saying...

I would like to explain my exceptional experience with Duke Marine. I got in touch with Sonia in January 2019 and after some discussions, Sonia acknowledged that my skills could be used here in Canada. That was fantastic news for me! To make the dream a reality, Sonia and the Duke Marine team organized and arranged all the paperwork necessary for this to happen. This and regular contact made the whole experience a great one. I came to Canada with the certainty that I knew where I was going and who I was reporting to, all thanks to the communication efforts of Duke Marine. I must say that this did not stop with my arrival here in Canada. Sonia and the team supported me throughout the process to bring my family here too and were available to answer many questions I've had over the past year. Sonia and her team are very accessible and easy to get along with. Thank you, Sonia, and Duke Marine, for making my family’s dream of living and working in this incredible country a reality!

I want to thank my company Duke Marine Technical Services and my boss Sonia Logue for giving me the opportunity to be part of this valued company. The company and management supported me and helped me find a job and come to Canada. They helped me in my trip to Canada as well as in the process for all the official documents necessary for my work process. Since I'm not from Canada, Duke always helped me where all the processes were very new to me. They always made me feel comfortable. In the COVID-19 situation, where Canada and the world were struggling, I almost lost all hope. Sonia and her team worked hard to ensure that my family and I didn't have to return to our homeland without a job. We survived this difficult situation. I'm very grateful for everything this company has done for me and to show confidence in me and my abilities.

Working for Duke Marine meant more than just a job. They treated me like a family. They worked tirelessly to make sure I had work and did everything possible to make sure I had a job. With all the countless recruiters I've applied with, Duke is the only one I have on my resume because they seem to find jobs where others can’t. Thank you very much Duke Marine Technical Services for being there as not only a trusted recruiter, but also someone that my family and I can trust.
Alfred Muno
Fifteen years ago, I took this opportunity to work for Duke Marine. Today, I still work for them, and I would strongly recommend the company to anyone who asks. The journey that I took led me to think of Sonia, John, and her and my colleagues as family members throughout my time at Duke Marine.
Juan Vela
Sr. Designer
I have known John and Sonia Logue for over 15 years through their company Duke Marine Technical Services. Our relationship was built on activities related to the design, services, and support of the oil fields. I have had the pleasure of working with them over the years and our professional relationship has developed to look more like a friendship too. I have always found John and Sonia reliable, hard-working, conscientious, honest, and courteous. I have seen them do unusual courtesies to their employees to help them through a difficult situation without expecting anything in return. I would personally recommend John and Sonia Logue and Duke Marine Technical Services to anyone as an excellent business with whom to have professional and personal relationships.
