Working with us
Here you can learn more about what's it like to work and grow with us, our commitment to creating a truly diverse and inclusive workplace and our range of excellent benefits.
Diversity and Inclusion
At Maersk, we're building a culture where everyone can feel at home. We don't just work across continents, we work across different genders, generations, cultures, sexual orientations, religions, disabilities and perspectives.
Together, we succeed as one global team. We want to encourage innovation and empower our teams to share new ways of thinking, making the most of our diverse talents. But it’s also about feeling involved and encouraged to be yourself.
We’re excited for you to become part of our team and fully join in the adventure ahead.
Policies and target
Why would we only hire from 50% of the global talent pool? Increasing the gender representation of the talent applying to work for Maersk means that we are able to hire from the widest talent pool.
Challenging the status quo
Being inclusive is about being able to work across differences and being able to make decisions free from bias, respecting each other and leveraging the uniqueness everyone brings to work.
Women in Transport and Logistics
In 2018, ITC SheTrades and Maersk launched a partnership to help female entrepreneurs who use logistics and shipping. Why have we partnered? Many female-led businesses face a variety of export barriers, so we've offered our tools and services to accelerate growth and provide access to new global markets.

Inclusion at Maersk means recognising and successfully leveraging the many differences our employees bring to the workplace. Having policies and guidelines in place that support the different choices and career paths that employees may take is an essential step in creating an inclusive culture.
