Who are you?
Achieving success in Grieg Star requires dedication and a professional attitude coupled with commercial awareness. Being able to build good relations with customers, business partners and colleagues is imperative. Besides being good at what you do, you will come a long way by showing common sense, a genuine interest in the maritime business and the willingness to walk that extra mile.
Team spirit and working with others, having fun and share successes while living our values of openness, pride, commitment and solidity are all important parts of the Grieg way.
Working in an international and diverse setting demands awareness and a profound cultural understanding. Furthermore, dialogue and good communication between ship and shore is critical to our success and is a constant focus. We are looking for people who have good communication skills together with a friendly personality and positive mindset. But above all, we are looking for people who believe in really looking after our customers and assets and putting that into practice.
Our business success relies on the quality of our people and the work they all do. That is why training and continuous learning is so important to us.
We believe that individuals will thrive and develop by working together, and by being able to combine formal education, on-the-job training and new challenges. In addition, everyone needs and wants to know how they are doing. Creating a working environment where dialogue and constructive feedback are integral parts is equally important.
We offer our employees a wide range of learning opportunities, like:
- Technical programs to ensure employees develop and maintain their skills.
- Numerous professional refreshment courses.
- Participation in international business conferences.
- Training of non-technical skills such as people management and communication.
- Leadership development programs.
- Possibilities for support to follow further academic studies.
- Induction programs.
- Providing opportunities to visit vessels for land based employees.
Grieg Star recruits seafarers exclusively from the Philippines through our manning office Grieg Philippines, located in Manila. We put great emphasis on selecting the right person and provide the corresponding training for that person in order to succeed and to become the best and preferred employer. Grieg Star has been present in the Philippines for the past three decades, employing Filipino officers and crew for its highly specialised fleet of open-hatch vessels.
Grieg Philippines ensures the supply of highly competent and dedicated Filipino officers and crew to the vessels of Grieg Star. The company aims at providing excellent services to our seafarers, and offers competitive compensation packages and benefits. In preparation for the future, we source our cadets from the Norwegian Shipowners Association’s (NSA) Philippines Cadet Program. At any given time, we have about 100 cadets in our system.
Officers’ Conferences are held regularly. In addition to the latest developments within Grieg Star and Grieg Philippines, the forums have shown to be productive workshops in an effort to continuously improve our operational business.
