Chief Engineer

Who are we?

With a fleet of more than 100 multipurpose cargo vessels, the Spliethoff Group manages one of the largest fleets in the Netherlands. Within this fleet we have vacancies for Officers and Ratings, licensed for vessels above 3000 GT and 3000 kW.

Can we entrust you with an expensive ship? Do you want to do more than just standard bulk and tanker sailing? Could you manage a complicated loading? Is the whole world your oyster? In short, are you ready for a new challenge? Spliethoff Group offers some very interesting maritime possibilities to give your career a new direction.

The vessels are trading worldwide. Transportation of forest products such as paper, pulp and sawn timber is a core activity next to project cargoes, generals, containers and bulk. One day you could be loading paper in the depths of a Baltic winter and a couple of weeks later discharging in the tropics. Then again, it could be containers or a complicated project cargo - always a lot of work and never a dull moment!
