Join a great team in an attractive location
Samskip innovates the most advanced sustainable and multimodal transport solutions across Europe and beyond.

It’s busy, it’s fun and every day is different as you work together to reach the next level and service a wide range of international customers.
Accuracy and efficiency
Your core function in this role is to perform general administration and customs work. This includes tasks such as:
Documentation completion (Health Certificates);
Invoicing and customs data entry.
Time is always of the essence so it’s important that you can work quickly and efficiently in order to meet deadlines. Of course, it will help if you already have some customs or freight-forwarding knowledge and experience. However, experience is not essential and we will provide all the training you need to do the job to the best of your ability. And once you’re up and running, you will be free to work from home for at least some of the time.

Samskip also offers:
- A competitive compensation package;
- 25 days of annual leave;
- Private medical and life insurance;
- Company pension scheme;
- The flexibility to work from home some of the time in agreement with the manager.
The right approach
As mentioned above, you don’t need any experience to apply for this role. Instead, what really matters is that you have an enthusiastic and disciplined approach to the training we provide, followed by a hard-working and independent approach to the job itself.
Beyond that, the only formal requirements are:
- College education;
- Knowledge of standard office programs (Excel, Microsoft Word);
