Odfjell Drilling is looking for two technical maritime trainees that will rotate within various departments in our business area for Mobile Offshore Drilling Units (MODU). Following completion of the trainee program, it is the intention that the trainee will continue in a permanent position in MODU. This will be dependent on the trainee’s performance, motivation and interest, combined with the company’s development and requirements. Former maritime trainees are now found in internal leading positions.
Our trainees will be a part of one of the leading management program in Norway, Maritime Trainee, which is organised for the industry by the Norwegian Shipowner’s Association (Rederiforbundet). The program lasts for 18 months and combines working in a world leading drilling company with an academic program with five modules in Norway, Singapore and London. This program gives you an outstanding way to start your career. In our MODU department, you will be challenged within fleet management, technical department, digitalization and finance.
The positions will be based at our head office in Kokstad, Bergen, although offshore travel is a large requirement and extensive flexibility is vital in order to succeed within the trainee program.
Ideal candidates should also be interested and willing to write their master thesis in co-operation with Odfjell Drilling.
In addition to following the Norwegian Ship Association’s trainee program, the trainees will rotate within various departments in our business area for Mobile Units. The work scope will include:
