Position A:

Shipping Trainee Annapolis 2017

Application deadline:
16/04/2017

Location: Annapolis, US

Send Application by clicking here

Through our intensive two-year programme as Shipping Trainee at NORDEN Shipping (USA) LLC. you will receive a thorough introduction to international shipping. The training consists of both a practical and a theoretical part. Your days will be busy and interesting, and as an added bonus your work life will become international - thus sharing your day-to-day work both local and Danish colleagues at the office. You will be supervised by a mentor in your department and there will always be a colleague close by to answer your questions.

The practical part - Hands-on shipping
You will be an active player on our team in Annapolis, Maryland from day one. During the two-year period your knowledge of our 2 primary sections will gradually develop. You will gain hands-on experience within the commercial part through a 12-month stay in our Chartering Department and within the executive part through a 12-month stay in our Operations Department. In addition, you will have 1 or 2 short stays (a few weeks) with 1 of our Port Captains in frequently used ports or on board vessels sailing on various destinations. This will give you an idea of how loading and discharging operations of vessels take place and how we co-operate with authorities and other partners in practice.

The theoretical part - Shipping theory
You will participate in a number of internal and external courses covering various shipping related subjects. Some courses are held with the Danish Shipping Academy in Denmark in modules of 1 to 2 weeks which you will attend with your fellow Shipping Trainees from NORDEN offices world-wide and trainees from other shipping companies worldwide.

Qualifications
To qualify for the Shipping Trainee Programme you are to have - as a minimum - a bachelor degree with good results. Your personal qualifications and mindset are almost as important as your results: You have a strong personality, and you are open, curious and have the courage to challenge yourself in new and perhaps different surroundings. You are a dedicated teamplayer who share our core values: flexibility, reliability, empathy and ambition. Furthermore, work permit in the USA is mandatory. NORDEN will not sponsor a work permit/visa.

Once you have completed the programme
The purpose of the Shipping Trainee Programme is to become either a Charterer or an Operator with NORDEN Shipping (USA) LLC in Annapolis. As part of career development with NORDEN we operate with a lot of opportunities for global exposure - either in terms of travelling or shorter as well as longer stays with an office abroad.

If you meet the requirements described above and if you see yourself building a career in the shipping industry, please submit your application, CV and other relevant documents and we will consider you for the role as Shipping Trainee.
