Many of today’s challenges are tougher and more complex than ever before. Oil reserves are harder to reach, global trade demands new levels of efficiency, and people are increasingly aware of the environmental impact of human industry. Finding solutions to these challenges mean pushing the boundaries of technology and possibility.
Maersk is always looking for resourceful and innovative thinkers to work throughout the group’s businesses. Tackling today’s complex challenges demands a solution-oriented approach that combines different sets of information and data.
Lars Lübker, Container Technology Manager at Maersk Container Industry describes the appeal of his job: “If we want to design a new floor construction for a container, first off we have to mimic the harsh environment it will see throughout its lifetime. That means that we have to do destructive testing — we have to slam and bang the container, we have to break it, we will drive a heavy forklift inside, and we will see destruction. Once we’ve seen destruction we can build something new, and try to improve it, then retest it. If it doesn’t break, then it’s OK. Then we’ll use it.”
A commitment to recruiting the best talent involves a commitment to career-long training and education. This ensures that Maersk and its employees stay ahead of the marketplace.
At Maersk our strong focus on diversity is a natural outcome of a company with a strong talent focus, mindset and culture. This commitment to diversity goes hand in hand with a commitment to inclusion: all employees are valued and treated with respect at all times. Discrimination and harassment are not tolerated. This creates a workplace with an open and vibrant culture – where people are free to be themselves, do their best, inspire others and realise potential for themselves and their teams.
