International bunkering firm Monjasa has started an international oil and shipping trainee programme to groom the next generation of bunker traders.
The Monjasa Oil & Shipping Trainee (MOST) programme is a two-year long programme in Panama, Dubai, Singapore and Denmark combining hands-on experience and industry knowledge.
“Being part of a survival-of-the-fittest industry, it is key for us to sharpen our competitiveness and adapt to the world around us,” says Group COO, Svend Molholt.
“Adapting to new industry norms has already pushed for new digital compliance workflows and documented quality in our bunker operations.
“We are now investing in more thorough educational and cultural ballast aimed at the bunker traders of tomorrow.”
Part of the MOST programme also includes curriculum at the Danish Shipping Academy.
“The shipping industry gives access to a broad range of opportunities for those with a thirst for global challenges,” says Executive Director Jacob Ullegaard, Danish Shipping.
“Monjasa’s MOST programme is a great entry point to this world of opportunity and I am happy that they have ambitions for their future trainees.
“The programme also includes participation in the Commercial Shipping Program under the Danish Shipping Academy, where the students both gain a broad insight into the industry and a solid network with peers in similar positions across the industry.”
The deadline for MOST applications is in April. The programme is open to candidates in Panama, Dubai, Singapore and Denmark.
