Shipping is a global industry connecting world markets; a business that is international, dynamic, and capital intensive. The industry demands a skillful workforce to drive it, and offers many career opportunities. For those with technical inclinations, there are prospects in naval architecture, marine engineering or marine surveying. Those with a more commercial and business focus can choose to specialise in ship financing, brokering, maritime law, leasing ships, and sales and purchase. And those who prefer a career at sea can choose to be deck officers, engineers or crew.
At BW, we offer challenging work in an international environment with a team of dedicated, competent colleagues. If our values resonate with you and you think you can contribute, we would be delighted to hear from you. We bring together talented individuals and provide opportunities for professional development.
