Monjasa Americas (Panama) is looking to employ bunker traders at its office in Panama City.

According to Monjasa, the ideal candidate will have sales experience with documented results, will be fluent in English, and will have previously worked in the maritime or oil industry - preferably in bunker trading and/or supply - and built up a network of contacts in the shipping community.

Monjasa is looking to employ people that are driven and strong at building personal relations with a high customer focus, are able to work both in teams and as an individual, and have a flair for numbers, analysis and negotiation.

The primary role of the traders selected for the job will be day-to-day trading, focusing on the sales and purchase of bunker fuel, as well as logistical planning to optimize profits.

"Monjasa offers an exciting job in a global organisation, where you will be a part of a young and ambitious team. We always strive to be the best team player - and when it comes to us being the preferred working place of our candidates, we might owe it to our excellent working environment, which reflects the company's expectations towards employees: 'Expect something more than the usual and perform above average'," the company says in its job description.

The deadline for applications is April 27, 2018.

Panama operation

Earlier this year, Monjasa said its bunker supply volumes have increased in the Panama Canal since the launch of the new locks in 2016.

Monjasa currently manages four barges in the Panama Canal - three in Balboa and one in Cristobal - and claims to deliver between 35,000 and 40,000 metric tonnes of oil products in the area per month.

The bunker firm said in July that a number of oil cargo players had recently entered the Panama market, which in turn had improved sourcing opportunities for bunker suppliers.

Monjasa also has a customer satisfaction programme in the Canal for each supply operation, which is designed to help meet the needs of its clients.
