Graduate Internship - Shipping Industry (Marketing, Logistics / Maritime, or Business degree)

The shipping industry is at the heart of much of what we do- many other businesses rely on shipping companies to export and import their goods and raw materials across the world.

This business is one of the leading players in the global shipping industry, and has offices throughout the world. They have a reputation for providing customer-focused solutions, a quality-through-excellence approach and continual innovation- including the use of information technology and e-commerce to manage the entire cargo process.

They have an excellent record of taking on and developing graduates, and are now looking for someone to join their sales and marketing department, where you will be assigned a permanent staff member to work with on a project to review the data analytics that the company has access to and see if there is a better way to use the information to help generate sales leads.

The business is expecting to expand in the UK next year, and you will be helping to prepare the company for this with specific projects. Having new people with new ideas is always welcomed and this also encourages permanent staff to think outside the box too. If all goes well there may even be the opportunity to join the company permanently, with a salary of £20,000.

You should be a recent graduate with Marketing; Business Administration; or Maritime / Logistics based degree, together with good all-round IT skills, including Excel. 

The offices are based approximately mid-way between Ipswich and Felixstowe.
