Cost Control and Port Specialist- London

  • Permanent
  • Europe


We are currently working on a Cost Control and Port Specialist position for a major international and market leading  ship owner/ operator within the bulk market. This is a new position that would report directly into the Global Head of Cost Control also London based.
The primary focus of the position would be driving cost saving synergies and improving contract efficiency within the Atlantic and Pacific regions with a particular focus on port costs. You would monitor and analyse port costs in order to identify variances and spots where overspending can be recognised. This role will also draw upon relationship building as cultivating positive relationships with suppliers and vendors would be very advantageous. Negotiating new agreements as well as re-negotiating existing ones will also form a large part of the role.

This position would be ideal for someone that has around 4/5 years working within an Agency setup or within port operations. Someone that understands port costs and contracts would be ideal. Ideally you will have strong systematic skills and are able to think strategically regarding cost saving solutions.
