What we are looking for

From 2014 we are opening up our Trainee Broker Programme to school and college leavers, and those with experience in another role/industry looking for a career change.  Although we are still committed to attracting exceptional graduate applications, we want to reach out to a more diverse pool of candidates and have therefore broadened our approach to recruitment.

Business-minded individuals with entrepreneurial skills are crucial for a broking role: for example, having the ability to deal effectively with clients and having a strong work ethic to do whatever it takes to produce results.

In our view, successful shipbrokers need something more than just a good education to secure their first important job in the industry. You are likely to have well developed communication, data analysis and problem solving skills.

John Beckwith
Head of HR

We recognise that you may lack practical experience and we therefore concentrate on hiring people who best demonstrate the core elements of being a successful ship broker. Our trainees will be chosen based mainly on their:

  • Aspirations to become a ship broker
  • Lateral thinking/opportunity spotting/innovative ideas
  • Team working skills
  • Negotiating/influencing skills
  • Knowledge and understanding of ship broking

You will need to demonstrate that you have what it takes to become a successful broker, which will start with the first impression you make with your application. Our interviewing panel is keenly aware of the particular "it" factor they seek during the selection process.

Only a handful of individuals may possess the special and indefinable quality that enables them to become successful brokers. If you believe that you have what it takes we want to hear from you.
