Shipping/Commodities Consulting

Our client is a successful and highly prestigious shipping consultancy offering a wide range of services including valuations, due diligence, demand, supply and price forecasting and so on, to banks, investors, government, statutory and verification agencies, ship owners and brokers, etc.

Their immediate focus is on recruiting a junior but experienced chemicals/gases analyst with established skills and competencies in commodity chemicals commercial analysis. Although ideally acquired in a key product area like LNG, LPG or Ammonia, candidate experience would be welcome from other chemical or gas commodity value chains such as olefins/BTX/fertilizers/methanol, etc.

The job holder is likely to be a chemical engineer with an excellent first degree (or equivalent) from a leading university with competencies and skills acquired within chemical commodity consulting over a 2 to 5 year period. A knowledge of the shipping industry, is an advantage, but isn’t essential. Our client is not looking for engineers with a design background at this time.
