Höegh LNG's vision is to be the industry leader of floating LNG solutions and the strategy is to continue to focus its growth plans in the FSRU market, with the objective of securing long-term contracts with strong counterparties at attractive returns.

Höegh LNG is strengthening the Fleet Management team in preparation for a fleet expansion of more than 50% over the next two years. We are therefore seeking a candidate for the Maritime Trainee programme who will follow a tailored programme within the company to prepare for the responsibility as Technical Superintendent.

As soon as the candidate can demonstrate the ability and confidence he or she will be given the full responsibility as Technical Superintendent.

The traineeship will be focused on vessel management with rotation within relevant departments and involvement in relevant projects to prepare for the responsibility as Technical Superintendent, e.g. technical management, procurement, HSE, drydocking, newbuilding and modification, maritime personnel, ship maintenance, operations, etc. The traineeship will also include a period of sailing with an LNG carrier, a period in a repair yard and a period in a newbuilding yard.

Being a Technical Superintendent is challenging work which demands much and requires the candidate to be diverse, hands-on, possess deep technical understanding and being a problem solver.

The successful candidate will work with difficult and complex tasks in an industry where Höegh LNG and the LNG community in Norway are in the forefront. This opportunity will help the successful candidate to grow into an LNG professional.
