Ultragas Traineeship

Build a Career in International Shipping

The Ultragas Trainee Programme

A traineeship in Ultragas is an intensive two-year programme consisting of both theoretical and practical training.

As a trainee in Ultragas you will follow the theoretical training of the Commercial Shipping Program together with other Danish and international Shipping Trainees.

The theoretical training consists of a unique combination of classroom sessions and e-learning. You will learn about Maritime Economics, Maritime Law, Negotiation Technique, Cultural Awareness and Ship Knowledge.

The practical training takes place at the Ultragas Copenhagen office where you will gain extensive knowledge about the three main areas of shipping; chartering (sales), operations & fuel procurement (practical tasks) and operations control (back-office support). During the two years, there will also be a period of posting abroad in Chile.

A traineeship in Ultragas will provide you with:

  • A great start to your career in shipping within a company that keeps a narrow focus on your continuous development both personally and theoretically
  • An international network of highly professional and motivated colleagues
  • International working experience from one of our offices abroad
  • Hands-on experience with all aspects of shipping supplemented with participation in tailored courses
  • Profound knowledge of the shipping industry.

Do you have the right mix of competences?
