Senior Dry Broker (Shortsea)- UK

Spinnaker is exclusively working with a niche Broking house focusing on the shortsea bulk market that is headquartered in the UK and are looking to grow. They are currently a small setup with 4 experienced Dry Brokers across the two offices but they have recently been bought out by a large shipping group and with this new investment are looking to grow the business by bringing in a Senior Dry Broker to their UK office.

The need for someone highly experienced in this position is part of long term succession planning and whilst initially the core focus will be purely Broking, over time there is a plan for this hire to take on some general management responsibility as part of a handover process over the next few years.

Given the fact our client are shortsea specialists in the dry cargo market the ideal candidate would be an experienced Broker that knows this area and ideally has some of their own accounts and ideas of what they would like to develop.

Our client’s area of trade is predominantly Northern Europe, the Baltic, Mediterranean and Black Sea but it is not limited to those areas and increasingly develops business in Transatlantic, US Gulf/Eastern Seaboard, Africa and Pacific.

The volume of business the company handles is growing year on year and at present they are struggling to deal with the amount of work coming in so it would need to be someone experienced that could hit the ground running and start to take ownership of some of their key clients.

This is an exciting opportunity for the right person to join a small but very well established team under the new ownership where further growth is targeted and the potential to take on general management responsibility in the coming years.
