Your responsibilities

The Position

As an HR Advisor within the Ship Management Department (SMD), you will play a crucial role in offering comprehensive HR advice and operational support to our crewing team, who maintain close contact with the crews on our ships. Your primary responsibility is to ensure timely and compliant execution of HR policies and processes, ensuring our onboard personnel feel seamlessly integrated into the organization. 

Dive into the heart of HR as you handle the complexities of absenteeism, ensuring adherence to both local and international employment conditions, including payroll, and compliance with the Maritime Labour Convention (MLC). You will be performing operational HR tasks as well as providing advise directly to crew members and your colleagues from the crewing team.

Your work environment

Your role extends beyond the office environment – you will occasionally visit projects and/or ships, engage in crucial conversations, and immerse yourself in the maritime environment.

In our quest for a new HR Advisor to join our team, we are seeking an HR professional who is approachable, action-oriented, and service-focused, ready to navigate the challenges of the maritime industry. Your ability to uncover the 'question behind the question' is your compass, demonstrating your intuitive understanding of human dynamics. Balancing sensitivity with resilience, you're not afraid to navigate the waters of difficult conversations. Embracing a roll-up-your-sleeves mentality, you recognize that success often requires hands-on dedication.
