We Invest in Our People

We want to be recognised as the place where people are empowered to do their best work. We hire the brightest talents and give them the tools to shine – including leading edge IT systems and high quality training and development as well as financial reward.

Clarksons is committed to investing in talent retention and staff development, ensuring that as we grow (both organically and through acquisition) the right people are identified and developed.

Our training schemes remain unique in our industry, blending the collective skilled counsel and guidance of our staff with the tutelage of external experts from all areas of the shipping, trading and commodity markets.

John Beckwith
Head of HR

We have opened up our Trainee Broker Scheme to include school and college leavers, in addition to the on-going graduate recruitment programme, believing that the qualities of commitment, talent and passion we seek in a trainee requires a more diverse approach to recruitment.  Trainess can expect a fully-rounded education where their individual talents are nurtured and developed into what we hope will enable them to become the future leaders of our business.  In addition we offer a small number of paid internships to students each year and, through long-standing relationships with schools and academies, we are able to offer regular work experiece opportunities in our broking and research divisions.
