Published on 20 February 2017
Maersk’s Transport & Logistics division is seeking 75 candidates who will make up the first intake in its new graduate programme Go with Maersk, starting in September.
The vacancies are spread across all brands in the division and based in 40 different countries covering Commercial, Operations, Finance, IT and other areas of the business.
Going Further Faster
Go With Maersk has been specially designed to develop Transport and Logistics leaders of the future. The programme is seeking candidates from the ‘digital-native generation’ that want to go further, faster in their careers.
Applicants must have a top Master’s Degree plus two to three years relevant work experience. Importantly, they should be able to demonstrate a passion for trade, an ambition to succeed and a collaborative mindset.
One of the truly distinguishing factors of Go with Maersk is that we offer candidates a ‘real job’, so the everyday will be challenging. We are confident we will attract the very best candidates.LOUISE BJERRING, PROGRAMME MANAGER, GO WITH MAERSK
“A.P. Moller-Maersk has a long tradition of providing ‘on-the-job’ training for those starting out in their careers. Go with Maersk has been designed based on these solid frameworks and a lot of feedback over the years. We are confident we will attract the very best candidates,” says Louise Bjerring, Programme Manager, Go with Maersk.
An ambitious programme
The ambitious programme involves two job rotations, during which candidates complete four academic modules run by University of Berkeley, California; followed by a two-year expatriate posting.
Modules take place in Shanghai, California, Ghana and Copenhagen – where the graduation ceremony will also be held.
Coaching and mentoring forms a major part of the programme and each candidate will be assigned an ‘anchor manager’ to closely follow their career development.
The academic content will take place alongside the candidate’s real work in the company.
“One of the truly distinguishing factors of Go with Maersk is that we offer candidates a ‘real job’,” says Bjerring. “We haven’t just invented these positions for the sake of the graduate scheme as is often the case. So the everyday will be challenging and they need to deliver in their roles as well as on the academic side.”
