We usually recruit between two and three graduate trainees a year, from a range of different disciplines, who have a particular motivation to enter ship broking. Successful applicants will work under the guidance and instruction of experienced brokers and will gradually start talking to clients and conducting negotiations.
We also have a number of three-month work experience placements in our offices for students looking to gain an insight into working in a ship broking office. You will be given a number of tasks to perform including assisting brokers with inputting data, drafting reports, as well as operations and administrative tasks. You will be assigned a mentor and will be given the opportunity to learn about the different aspects of a ship broker's work. Outstanding candidates demonstrating a keenness to enter the shipping industry, along with the ability to get along with people from a range of backgrounds, may be offered a permanent trainee position.
