Our vessel manager team is expanding and we invite you to be our new colleague based at the head office in Hellerup, Denmark.
Do you thrive working at a high pace with demanding customer expectations? Are you motivated to take the lead and build a bridge between the crew at sea and team at the office? Could you identify with our core values: accountability, resoluteness, empathy and adaptability?
If the answer is yes, then keep reading - you might just be our new colleague.
Your professional and personal qualifications
You are the right candidate if you enjoy working in a structured way and have a proactive mindset towards continuously improving performance.
You must be a good communicator able to work with and motivate crew in a multicultural environment. Besides your technical skills, you have a customer focused understanding and the ability to apply a risk based approach to operation, change management issues and safety leadership issues.
You have good IT-skills and knowledge of the systems used for running and maintenance of vessels. Proficiency in English is a prerequisite as it is our working language.
Your background is possibly from a similar position in technical ship management, marine engineering, or other engineering background, or you have served as senior officer onboard. The ideal candidate has worked with gas carriers or oil tankers, but this is not essential and – if required - we will provide the necessary training.
Your new job
As vessel manager in Lauritzen Kosan you will report to the Head of Vessel Management and undertake a central role, working closely with officers on board the vessels and with technical as well as commercial colleagues ashore.
You will have overall responsibility for managing the performance, condition, maintenance and repairs within the approved budget and off-service for a designated number of vessels.
The key assignments include:
- Planning and execution of maintenance and repairs
- Proactively optimizing condition based maintenance and running of vessels
- Planning and managing dry-dockings
- Technical assistance and close collaboration with ship management teams
- Frequent vessel inspections
- Budgeting, cost control, and budget follow-up
- Vessel preparedness and responsiveness to external inspections and audits like vetting, TMSA and PSC
- Tasks to ensure constant vessel safety, reliable operation and ability to trade
Travel activity of up to 90 days per year is part of the job, so flexibility is important to become successful in this role. Vessel managers are enrolled in a watch scheme.
Your new workplace and colleagues
Lauritzen Kosan has technical management of close to 25 LPG carriers counting pressurized, semi refrigerated and ethylene carriers.
