NORDEN is currently looking for a new colleague to join the operations team in our Annapolis office.

What is in it for you:

As Operator your job will be to independently operate a group of vessels. This includes monitoring, measuring, and optimizing the performance of vessels, agents, and ports as well as daily contact and coordination with vessels, agents, and owners to ensure a smooth operation. We have a strong focus on costs and aim to increase productivity and reduce voyage expenses to improve P&L.

You will become part of a strong team with an ambition to be number one in our business. We strive to render best-in-class customer service in all given conditions in order to be the preferred owners to our clients. We aim to build strong relationships with our clients and spending time visiting with our clients in North, South and Central America is therefore one of our top priorities.

As an Operator with NORDEN’s Tanker Operator you will be:

  • Responsible for ensuring a smooth operation of several tanker vessels in the fleet.
  • Trusted with own defined responsibility
  • Part of a strong and capable team who focuses on succeeding by joined efforts.

Your qualifications:

As our new Tanker Operator, you thrive in a business-driven environment and have a competitive mindset. You enjoy taking responsibility and getting the chance to demonstrate your ability to optimize voyages and deliver service to our clients.

You are a US Citizen or a US Green Card Holder. You have minimum 2 years of experience with vessel operations ashore. Any experience with operation of chemical vessels is an advantage. It's preferable but not a requirement that you have sailing experience onboard tanker vessels.

You are steady even under pressure and great at multi-tasking - never losing your attentiveness to details.

You have strong IT skills – as well as a good understanding of IT systems and the processes behind. It is an advantage if you have experience with the shipping system IMOS. And most importantly, you are meticulous when it comes to data entry.

Furthermore, it is important that you can find your way around in a changing environment within a challenging industry, as we are constantly striving to improve the way we do business and that often includes changing processes and mindset.

As part of a small team, you must be a strong team player but at the same time be able to work independently and take ownership of the vessels you operate.

Our core values are flexibility, reliability, empathy, and ambition and it is important that you can identify yourself with these.
