Operations Specialist


A job that doesn't leave a big carbon footprint. Sounds good, right? That’s exactly what we offer you at our office in Gdańsk. At Samskip we’re all about sustainable solutions and sending out green messages. As our new operations specialist you'll have a big part to play in this with your structured approach to managing vendors in Poland.

A standard job? No such thing at Samskip.
Don’t let the daily routine fool you. As an operations specialist your work may be structured, but it's also varied. Your task? Effectively managing vendors to ensure that 95% of our collections and deliveries are on time. Your job entails creating and sending demand forecasts to truckers, sending and updating driver notifications and controlling container stocks. You also respond rapidly to changing circumstances. With sparing the environment at the back of your mind at all times you will be working on:

  • making sure the right daily and weekly truck capacity is available.
  • reporting feedback from Customer Service to truckers.
  • referring all additional transport costs to Customer Service.
  • ensuring that stocks of empty containers are available for export forecasts.
  • verifying invoices.
  • sending equipment demand forecasts to Trade Management. 

An international position based in historic Gdańsk
From Samskip's offices, you have an international impact on our operations and share in the success and development of one of Europe's largest transport companies. On land, at sea and by rail. Your expertise has an international impact at Samskip. 

International? Certainly. We ship goods across the globe, and we need plenty of people to make this happen. This means your work reaches far beyond Poland alone, as you help customers from all over the world. As a company, we consciously promote sustainable and environmentally friendly transport and you regularly reap the benefits of this. That's because we deliver many of the products you see in your supermarket, with the lowest possible environmental impact.

A small office on the outskirts of Gdańsk
You will be spending your 40-hour week at our office in Gdańsk. Its location close to highway 91 and the Stadion Energa makes it easy to reach. Together with five colleagues you will help to build on the good working atmosphere and team spirit. The combined teams of the Customer Service and Operations departments are young and motivated and will welcome you with open arms. As well as all the fun moments, you work together on Samskip’s growth in Poland. 

You can count on us.
Apart from a job where you have an impact on the world, we offer you:

  • a salary commensurate with your knowledge and experience. 
  • 26 days' holiday a year.
  • medical insurance.

Actions speak louder than words.
You are a team player who brings structure to the workfloor. You don't shrink from daily routine and focusing on repetitive tasks comes naturally to you. So far so good? We'd love to hear from you if you also have:

  • a degree in Logistics or Business.
  • 2-3 years' experience in a similar role.
  • experience of working in the shipping and logistics sector.
  • excellent command of spoken and written English.
  • knowledge of road or sea transport.
