Ready to take your career to the next level?
We are a team of more than 130 motivated and dedicated employees across our offices in Athens, Beijing, Copenhagen, Dubai, Geneva, London, Miami, Oslo, and Singapore.
Lightship typically recruits within three categories; brokerage, chartering operations, and finance. If you're contemplating a future in international shipping and are motivated to work with one of the world's best teams, you should definitely look to Lightship for your next career move!
Are you our next trainee?
Every September, we welcome new trainees to our Lightship Academy program. Aimed at laying out the foundation for a career as a ship broker, this program will teach you the basic market mechanisms, trading practices, legal frameworks, information processing, and client reporting. The training is designed as a mix of self-study, classroom tutoring, and practical group work – on real client assignments – as well as one-on-one mentoring sessions.
Throughout the program, you will be subject to practical tests and continuous assessments. Our goal is to guide as many trainees successfully through the program as possible, and all students will be assigned a personal “buddy” for advice and support throughout the training process. Should you successfully graduate from Lightship Academy, you will receive the title of Junior Broker and be assigned client accounts.
Looking for an internship?
If you are currently studying towards a Bachelor's or Master's degree with a focus on shipping, we would very much encourage you to apply for an internship in one of our offices. Our internships are designed to enable you to combine your academic studies with practical work within the shipping brokerage industry. This can entail anything from general market analysis to practical voyage cost calculations, as well as various other kinds of client work.
As an intern, you will be welcomed as a full member of the team, and you will follow the Lightship Academy internship program.
