Student assistants inspire

Press release   •   Feb 10, 2015 15:47 CET

ESVAGT do not only train future mariners – they are also actively involved as training place for clerical workers. Student assistants are currently employed in Chartering, Ship Management, HR and Management.

”It has been our ambition to take on student assistants for many years but has not been possible until now. Moving into larger premises has made it possible to find room for them,” says Head of People & HR Nick Ørskov:

”Young, talented people come to us with the new knowledge and theories – and that makes us sharper. At the same time, it gives us a chance to make ourselves a more attractive workplace to a group of people we know that we will need,” he says.

Our current student assistants are studying multimedia design, bachelor of commerce, master of commerce and dual officer. Lise Bjerning Terp, Management Assistant at ESVAGT, has two student assistants on her team:

”They bring with them up to date knowledge – whereas we have years of experience. It is good to question how we do things if we do them “the way we have always done them”, which they do. They are good at asking about what we do and they contribute and inspire,” she says:

”Plus, of course, they help our average age count!”
