“Working at MOL Chemical Tankers as a trainee means being part of a dynamic, fun and energetic work environment in a fast-paced industry.
During my two years, I have operated chemical tanker vessels, negotiated with brokers, demurrage claim-handling and freight invoicing, connected with people around the world on a daily basis, sailed the Gulf of Bothnia and solved real-world tasks in collaboration with my colleagues and our valued customers.”
