TRAINEE PROGRAMME


Do you aspire to be a successful Trader working with shipping professionals around the world every day?

Glander International Bunkering's six-month Trainee Programme paves the way for a promising career as a Bunker Trader.

How is it structured?

The entry level programme is structured to provide the Trainee with a solid understanding of the shipping industry and our various counterparties. Moreover, emphasis is placed on a solid introduction to logistics, product knowledge, legal aspects, compliance, risk management and finance. Simultaneously, an assigned mentor will give you intensive training in core trading skills and competencies. The next step will be to go live and establish and develop a customer portfolio through call and sales campaigns as well as getting familiar with established suppliers.

Who are we looking for?

You should have experience in sales or have a university degree. You like languages and numbers. But more than anything you are competitive and have a winner’s mentality. To go a step further to become successful in your life and your career is already a habit of yours. You are curious, keen to explore, and can adapt to other people across cultures. Your level of integrity must be high, and you insist on doing things right as well as doing the right things. Perhaps you have excelled in a sport, and know well the difference lies in hard training and determination. You never waste your own and other people’s time, so you have a high level of discipline to constantly look for opportunities.

A typical working day?

We take the Traineeship in Glander International Bunkering very seriously, because our mission is to develop tomorrow's best performers. You will be an integral part of the team and play an important role in the daily operations. The successful Bunker Trader cannot wait to get to work in the morning, but is also well aware that we work across all time zones, which occasionally requires attendance after office hours. Initially you will spend the majority of time on theoretical learning, and will gradually apply those skills to establish contact to prospect customers and suppliers. Once you have grown a customer base, your day typically starts with checking and updating pending deliveries, to reassure your customers that we care about their business. Then you will look for opportunities to do repeat business and serve them even better. By the time you go home every day, you have taken important learning steps to become even more successful in your job.

What do we offer?

Embarking on one of the most versatile educational programs in the industry at one of the largest bunker trading houses, you will have an outstanding opportunity to develop into a high performing trader in a multicultural and dynamic environment. Every candidate’s progress will be reviewed throughout the program and at the end of the six months, after which successful candidates will be offered a Bunker Trader role with several benefits including a possible option to relocate to one of our affiliated offices worldwide.
