CAREERS AT SVITZER

FEATURED ROLES

“The best part of my job is the driving. I’ve always enjoyed the driving of ships. I also enjoy that it’s a small crew on-board, you all get involved. If you are a good team, then it really does make the job an easy one."

Emer Robinson, Master


ABLE SEAMAN

“My best piece of safety advice is to always wear your Personal Protective Equipment, shoes and helmet.”

Kenny Christensen, Able Seaman

CHIEF ENGINEER

“My family sees me as a role model because I am the first merchant marine graduate and first machinist as well. Part of my job is performing maintenance on all equipment to ensure they are running properly.”

Marysabel Moreno, Chief Engineer

APPRENTICE

“The biggest skill working for Svitzer has taught me is adaptability. To understand that everything could change last minute and to always be ready for the change of circumstance. Everyday is a different day!”
