Job description

About the Position

With continued increased activity and healthy business growth, GAC Norway is looking to fill 3 permanent, 100% entry level Logistics Coordinator positions to support our Freight Logistics Department. These positions provide a unique opportunity to collaborate with a diverse team of colleagues in the maritime industry in a company that values what each unique individual brings to the table.

The role of a Logistics Coordinator requires strong organisational skills and a focus on the customers’ needs as well as the ability to follow routines. We are able to consider motivated candidates with little experience to fill a junior level position as well as those with relevant experience and/or education. This opportunity is open to anyone interested in the industry but with no formal experience as well as those with years of experience looking for new challenges in a company that values your competency.

To ease training and operational efficiency, we prefer candidates that live in the Bergen area and can work from the office, especially for an entry level position. Some adjustments may be possible to support personal challenges, including working from home or another of our offices.

Do you like to “think outside the box" or have a disability that has given you additional skills and a unique perspective? Perhaps it's planning the day in detail or a trained approach to evaluating a new challenge. Then YOU are encouraged to apply regardless of age, gender, cultural background, or disability. We value your opinions and knowledge!

We believe in maintaining an environment where all voices are heard – an environment that embraces diversity and respects everyone. Personal qualities are emphasised!
