About the role
This is a dynamic role where no two days are the same! Based centrally in Sydney Harbour, you will help us manage important relationships with our Marine customers who move people and products across the globe by sea, using our fuels.
Our customers are large shipping companies operating ships and moving cargo worth millions of dollars, where every delay costs money. They rely on us to provide specialised fuels where and when they want, to keep them moving.
Our unique role is part of a small commercial team that has fun while working hard. Ensuring our commercial deals are carried out and our customers that include cruise and cargo operators are able to travel to their local and international ports, you will make decisions at speed, provide solutions to problems and ensure our contracts and service provisions are delivered – sometimes at short notice. You will regularly communicate with our customers, supply team and operators to ensure schedules are met efficiently and safely. Working within delicate marine environments, you will develop a comprehensive understanding of the marine industry (safety, environment, cruise ships, cargo ships, tankers / barge discharges) and commercial deals. This role can be worked flexibly; it is likely that you will receive calls from agents for last minute changes a couple times a week out of hours.
This role is the perfect opportunity for a recent graduate or early career mover looking for a dynamic role. We can offer the opportunity of being a deal maker in an exciting and fast moving industry, you will need to negotiate, think on your feet and provide solutions to keep our customers moving. You will be able to multitask seamlessly, moving the chess pieces with precision. You will be customer obsessed, driven to always find a solution to a problem, working within our network to provide the best outcome to our Marine customers. You will be super organized, have great excel skills and able to manage detailed and delicate communication via email and phone. Most of all you will be motivated to forge a career in an industry that offers a world of opportunity.
