Clarksons Shipbroking Summer Internship 2023 (early career)

26 June – 28 July (5 weeks)

What is a Shipbroker?

Shipping is a complex global industry and essential to the world’s economy. Shipbrokers play an important role within the industry, acting as intermediaries who negotiate the rates and terms between shipowners and charterers for the movement of goods around the world, as well as between the buyers and sellers of ships. Successful shipbrokers are industry experts, with strong commercial acumen. They are entrepreneurial and are good at identifying and developing innovative approaches and ideas. Fundamentally, they are natural networkers and relationship builders who enjoy working with people and collaborating across teams, and are committed and work hard to look after their clients and deliver excellent results.

Based at our incredible London office, our internship offers you the opportunity to:

  • learn about our business by working alongside experienced industry leading professionals
  • gain experience, insight and exposure across key shipbroking departments
  • help form the foundations of your work experience within shipping
  • be part of an intern cohort, with peer-to-peer support

What you’ll be doing

During your internship, some of what you may be doing includes the opportunity to:

  • provide assistance to experienced brokers who drive revenue and develop our client base
  • assist with maintaining databases and preparing market information and reports
  • assist with preparing presentations
  • assist with research, collecting data and market analysis
  • build market knowledge
  • think about potential commercial opportunities relating to trends and future markets
  • possibly attend client meetings and social events

You’ll receive

  • a paid internship
  • an assigned Clarksons colleague to help you navigate the company during your internship
  • access to online learning and training courses
  • free delicious lunch and subsidised breakfast, plus complimentary tea and coffee

What we’re looking for

We invite applications from candidates with an interest in shipbroking, commodities, global trade, energy and renewables, economics, data, or research who can demonstrate:

  • Drive and self-motivation, with the desire and commitment to succeed, deliver excellence and make positive change
  • Resilience with the ability to persist and adapt
  • Collaboration, able to work well with others across diverse backgrounds to share information, develop skills, and deliver results
  • Effective relationship building, with excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to quickly build rapport
  • Smart problem-solving and analytical abilities, with a curious and inquisitive mind, and an openness to new ideas
  • Professional integrity and a respect for company values

Other requirements

  • strong numeracy and presentation skills
  • proficiency in MS Office skills (Powerpoint, Excel, Word, Outlook)
  • fluency in a 2nd language (desirable but not essential)

Entry criteria

Our summer internship is open to:
