Consortio is working with one of the bunker industry’s leading brands in the search for a new, Business Associate / Junior Bunker Trader to join the London office’s ranks. 

This opportunity requires NO PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE as a bunker trader, as full training and mentorship will be provided by the business during a tailored, three-month traineeship programme. Over this time, you will gain an invaluable insight into the world of bunker trading through a development plan that will extensively cover bunker trading, bunker operations and use of the company’s unique / exclusive trading tools that you are encouraged to take full advantage of. At the end of these three months, a mutual assessment will be held with a view to extending your traineeship into a permanent position as a Bunker Trader.

In return for an unmissable opportunity to secure one of the most ‘sought-after’ careers, the business requires you to be a proven, passionate salesperson who is not deterred by the 24/7 nature of the shipping sector. You will be charismatic, confident and possess exceptional interpersonal / rapport building skills. You will face serious challenges that only the most robust, driven and energetic of personalities have been proven to thrive in.  
 

If this has caught your interest, do you also:
 

  • Have at least one year of sales experience, preferably with exposure to cold-calling?
     
  • Find that you’re driven by a career in the commercial shipping / trading sector?
     
  • Possess excellent analytical skills and possess an exceptional eye for detail?
     
  • Develop strong relationships with ease?
     
  • Class yourself as an exceptional communicator?
     
  • Speak additional languages?
     

If so, don’t miss out on an opportunity to join a company like no other. This methodical expansion coincides with a critical time in the shipping industry that is set to slingshot the lucrativeness of the bunker industry and the traders specifically. This opportunity offers an unbeatable blend of fertile ground, targeted personal development and avenues for career progression that make our client one of the most attractive brands to be a part of. On top of this, you can expect a strong basic salary and benefits package that is tailored to reward hard workers and top performers. Lastly, it is important to note that with the easing of Covid-19 restrictions, this will be a full-time, office-based position.
