We have high demands when we recruit our young and talented shipping trainees. Our shipping trainee program is a two-year educational program, which varies between theory and practice. The theoretical part takes place at Copenhagen Business School (CBS) and at the Danish Shipping Academy (DSA). Here, our trainees learn about Maritime Economics, Maritime Law etc. 

We make sure that all our trainees are part of a rotation plan, where they become acquainted with the different departments. Focus is on the commercial departments, because that is where the trainees will potentially continue their career. 

Every year, we have interns from CBS, International Shipping & Trade. When the students join us they are teamed up with a mentor that gives them specific guidance and introduces them to our industry. Later on, they are inspired to write their thesis based on the knowledge that they have gained during their internship.

We also accept interns from the maritime academies and schools for marine engineering on a regular basis. They get qualified assistance from our technical department to either their own projects or company-related projects.     

Kristine Baagø our HR Business Partner is in charge of our Trainee Program:

“We run a professional and thorough recruitment process for trainees and interns, and we acknowledge our responsibility towards the chosen few. It is our responsibility to continuously guide and support the trainees during their training in order to give them the best possible start of their future career in shipping. We see it as part of our social responsibility to help the next generation in good and relevant jobs to make sure they combine a strong academic background with some practical experience.”
