Job Opportunities: Trainee Ships Agent - Marchwood

We are currently recruiting for a Trainee Ships Agent to join our operational team based at Marchwood near Southampton. For this role we are looking for a dedicated and enthusiastic individual, interested in developing a career within a dynamic and ever-changing shipping industry. The successful candidate will initially complete a 12-week hands-on training programme whilst shadowing experienced Ships Agents in their day-to-day work. He/she will learn about all the various aspects of our role within the shipping industry and will thereafter board vessels in port, attending to Captain’s and crew requirements and preparing HMRC and ships’ cargo documentation. No previous experience is necessary, however the job holder must have a clean driving licence, be highly self-motivated and able to work independently and as part of a close-knit operational team. A close attention to detail and good computer skills are essential. Please note this is not an average 9-5 office job! The successful candidate will work as part of a professional team on a duty roster and will at times board ships during out-of-office hours/weekends and bank holiday periods. GP Shipping is a successful and well established Ships Agency business dedicated to provide the highest level of customer service for our clients. For more information please contact:

Please note that we are not a crewing agency and as such we have no operational roles available on board ships.
