The shipping industry is at the heart of much of what we do - many other businesses rely on shipping companies to export and import their goods and raw materials across the world.
This business is one of the leading players in the global shipping industry, and has offices throughout the world (including one to the south of Ipswich, where you will be based). They have a reputation for providing customer-focused solutions, a quality-through-excellence approach and continual innovation - including the use of information technology and e-commerce to manage the entire cargo process.
They have an excellent record of taking on and developing graduates, and are now looking for someone to join their Operations Department, where you will get an overview of container shipping operations including merchant haulage and port operations.
The business is expecting to expand in the UK next year, and you will be helping to prepare the company for this with specific projects. Having new people with new ideas is always welcomed and this also encourages permanent staff to think outside the box too. If all goes well there may even be the opportunity to join the company permanently, with a salary of £20,000.
You should be a recent graduate with a Mathematics; Economics; or Business Administration related degree, together with good all-round IT skills, including Excel.
The offices are based approximately mid-way between Ipswich and Felixstowe.
