As a Trainee Broker on this programme, you will gain experience working across some of our key shipbroking divisions, with learning and development to support your traineeship, and more besides! You will have access to our leading resources, training, and our people, as well as opportunities to help form and shape your career as a shipbroker.

This is a one-year entry level programme, comprising:

Upon completion of the one-year programme, trainees will be considered for a further one-year extension, which may include a secondment in one of our overseas offices.

Our Programme will launch at the end of September, kicking off in London with a Global Orientation Week, where all Trainees will come together, from the following locations we are hiring in: Dubai, Geneva, Houston, London, Oslo, Shanghai, and Singapore.
