Founded in 1921, OLDENDORFF CARRIERS combines its history as a German shipowner with the network of one of the world’s leading drybulk operators. We currently control some 700 chartered and owned vessels of 40 mio tdw, and we carry around 380 mio tons of raw materials and semi-finished products across the seven seas each year. Our customers can expect 100% performance. All the way.

We consider ourselves as business partners and consequently you will not only prepare analyses and reports upon request from the specialist departments, but also proactively develop analyses to identify risks or opportunities.
As a teamlead, you will be responsible for a team of three Business Controllers, servicing the needs of the Oldendorff Fleet and Transshipment Projects departments. The teamlead will also be the key contact person for the top-management in the Fleet department.

We are looking for a person who is having an attention for details and at the same time does not lose sight of the bigger picture. It is also essential that you look forward to become part of a large and cooperative team in Controlling, as we believe that teamwork plays a crucial role in being successful.
