The Ultrabulk Trainee Programme

A traineeship at Ultrabulk is an intensive two-year programme consisting of both theoretical and practical training.

As a trainee at Ultrabulk you will follow the theoretical training of the Commercial Shipping Programme together with other Danish and international Shipping Trainees.

The practical training takes place at the Ultrabulk Copenhagen office where you will gain extensive knowledge about the three main areas of shipping; chartering (sales), operations & fuel procurement (practical tasks) and operations control (back-office support). During the two years, there will also be a period of posting abroad in Chile.
