The international Shipping industry is responsible for transporting around 90% of world trade, which includes raw materials such as oil & gas and manufactured goods, for import and export. The Maritime Services sector in the UK – ship broking, finance, insurance, legal, classification, ship management and others – is renowned for its expertise and quality. It is the Maritime and Shipping industry which allows the global economy to function.
The industry is working hard to address real issues, not least of which are piracy, environmental regulation and the increasing challenge of finding and retaining sufficiently talented individuals both at sea and ashore. Commercial pressure to reduce costs and improve efficiency have forced the sector to embrace radical change.
The Odgers Berndtson Maritime & Shipping Practice is led in the UK from London and builds upon the firm’s longstanding success in the sector over the last decade.
Assignments are conducted across the full range of disciplines and have spanned senior executive and non-executive roles for ship owners and operators, shipbuilders, port authorities, ship brokers and Oil & Gas majors. We also handle key senior operational roles.
We add maximum value to clients’ operations in the provision of a long-term supply of high quality candidates. Our team have a successful track record of delivering creative candidate solutions to major national and international Shipping and Maritime Services clients.
Our core strength is in our understanding of the maritime environment and commercial reality of the sector.
