Set your sights on kickstarting your career with some of the best companies both locally and internationally.



As a Monjasa Oil & Shipping Trainee (MOST), you become part of a global two-year programme that offers exposure to key areas of our business and valuable insights into how we fuel global trade. You will be able to apply your learning and contribute to the performance of the team right away as Trader or Operator within Monjasa’s core business.

You will be part of global rotations (2x3 months) across our Monjasa offices such as Singapore, Dubai, Denmark, Cyprus or Panama, which will give you a unique understanding of different business contexts and cultures. Your knowledge of our business areas will gradually develop, and your challenges and complexity of tasks will similarly grow day by day. You will gain further shipping knowledge through the Commercial Shipping Programme with the Danish Shipping Academy in Denmark and Monjasa Academy will take you through plenty of internal training as well.

In every office, you can expect a supportive environment that oozes of family spirit, a multi-cultural vibe and a great atmosphere. This will give you a feeling of being home away from home when you are on your rotations. We also enjoy spending time together outside working hours, e.g. sports activities, gaming, watching a movie or wishing each other ‘Happy Friday’ at the bar.

The adventure is kicked off in Denmark in August 2020 with a mix of school, teambuilding activities and internal education. You will also be part of our extensive onboarding programme, where you will be introduced to all aspects of our business and meet many of your new colleagues.
