Monjasa launches two-year bunker training programme

Danish fuel and tanker group Monsaja is launching a two-year training programme for graduates who want to acquire the skills of the sector. 

The Monjasa Oil & Shipping Trainee (MOST) programme runs over two years in Panama, Dubai, Singapore and Denmark. Monsaja is recruiting now for the course that will start in April. The programme offers in-depth learning through the Commercial Shipping Programme at the Danish Shipping Academy during rotation periods in Denmark. In 2018, Monjasa expects to take on five - seven new bunker trading trainees as part of the new programme.

“A high paced transformation is taking place in the bunker industry. Complex and more diverse markets are unfolding and by rethinking Monjasa’s educational approach, we seek to set and redefine the global standards for the benefit of both Monjasa and the industry,”  Monjasa said.

“This new programme is designed to provide young candidates with a structured series of rotations across our core bunker trading business. So far, our grooming of trainees has been focused on activities at local offices. Now is the right moment to offer a more attractive educational package for the new generations pursuing global careers in oil and shipping,” said Tracy Palm, head of Monjasa Human Resources. 

"The shipping industry gives access to a broad range of opportunities for those with a thirst for global challenges. Monjasa’s MOST programme is a great entry point to this world of opportunity and I am happy that they have ambitions for their future trainees. The programme also includes participation in the Commercial Shipping Program under the Danish Shipping Academy, where the students both gain a broad insight into the industry and a solid network with peers in similar positions across the industry", said executive director Jacob Ullegaard, of shipowner representatitve body Danish Shipping.
