Do you have the mindset and skills to become part of the Baseblue family and want to take an active role in educating and promoting sustainable marine fuel solutions to the shipping industry? From our office in the Netherlands, we are offering a great opportunity for the right candidate and seeks Junior Trader, for a career in the ever-changing shipping industry. The industry is undergoing a green transition, where we as Baseblue take an active part in providing services and tools, helping our customers on this journey.

Joining Baseblue, you will take part in our Onboarding Program which addresses young professionals who have the skillset, yet little or no experience in the shipping industry. We ensure that you will gain a good understanding of shipping, bunkering, marine fuel products, and trading as well as its legal aspects and develop yourself into a successful marine fuel Trader, guided by some of the most experienced mentors the industry has to offer.

Your Profile

Baseblue is looking for candidates with a strong sales drive, a competitive spirit and a winning attitude. A creative, curious, result-driven individual, committed to lifelong learning and self-development and driven by meeting and exceeding their sales targets. We believe you will be an excellent candidate if you:

  • Have excellent knowledge of English, written and spoken
  • Are a fast learner and eager to explore the oil trading business
  • Are willing to put in a great effort to achieve great results
  • Are experienced in sales and/or hold a bachelor’s degree in shipping (desired, not a prerequisite)
  • Are native to other languages such as Danish, German, and Italian (desired, not a prerequisite)

About The Job

You will be an active part of the trading floor from day 1 with hands-on training. You will participate in internal and external courses, learn how to trade (buying/selling) and be guided on establishing your own customer portfolio and sourcing channels. More specifically, your day-to-day tasks include:

  • Building relationships with existing and new business partners
  • Conducting market research
  • Participating in client and supplier visits

The phone is one of your tools and you will collaborate closely with our global trading team. Job scope is not limited to customers in the local markets, as we work worldwide from our offices. We trade marine fuel (bunkers) and our job is to ensure that we provide our clients with the best solution possible in terms of product, supply port, delivery and pricing.

As traders, we do not oversee the physical supply, but we remain in close communication with all stakeholders (supplier, agent & customer), ensuring uninterrupted, smooth operation. You will closely monitor the oil market and regional supply developments as well as the availability of bunkers at critical ports.
