Who is?

Hi. I am a shipping company director, transport academic, author, family man and all round nice guy. I have worked as shipbroker, shipowner, freight trader and bulk charterer, in senior positions, with some of the largest and most disrespected (joke) companies in the world. Ask my advice on all things shipping and you will receive my blunt and always honest answer. Hang around to learn more about chartering and ship broker salaries, chartering and ship broker jobs, chartering and shipbroker recruitment agencies, cheap freight, maritime education, chartering and ship broker qualifications, become a ship broker, tips on how to be a successful bulk shipping executive, philosophy, Zen and the art of shipbroking, and much more.

  2. Hi VS!
    I am currently looking for a trainee/junior position as shipbroker, and I was just wondering, you as an established shipbroker; what is the qualities and skills you would look for if you were to hire a trainee/junior?
    And secondly; do you offer any guidance on CV and/or cover letters for a fee?

    Best regards

  3. Happy holiday!

    Greeting all the way from Singapore!

  4. VS, I am working as a trainee in a mayor offshore broker company, but the truth is that there is no such trainee, must of the time I am proactive and asking and finding myself stuff to do but no one is willing to train me. Is this normal? trainees are like this? ..

  5. Seems like a very long holiday...? ;)
