“As a Chief Officer, to be in charge of various areas onboard gives me great responsibility and challenges.”

How long have you worked at Maersk Supply Service and what was your starting position?

I have been working at Maersk Supply Service for more than 10 years. I started my first position as a Deck Cadet in 2009.

What skills have you developed? 

I have developed a huge variety of skills during these 11 years. Some key skills to mention include having an overview and managing tasks, handling crises, communication skills, as well as self-development and leading others.

What projects have you worked on and what was the highlight?

I’ve worked on various Anchor Handling and Supply operations in Brazil, such as hookups, anchor deployments, towings, heading controls, Scale Squeeze, cargo operations, Mud and dry bulk transfers, amongst some others. One of the great experiences I’ve been through was the torpedo launching operation – onboard Maersk Boulder and Maersk Launcher.

What is the most interesting part of your job?

The most interesting part of my job is the diversity, being able to participate actively in a lot of different operations offshore and alongside, from manoeuvring to managing, from clear skies to rough seas. As a Chief Officer, to be in charge of various areas onboard gives me great responsibility and challenges.

What has been your greatest achievement in Maersk Supply Service?

My greatest achievement in Maersk Supply Service is the experience I’ve acquired during these 11 years onboard different vessels working with different people and nationalities, and my development in the company. Being promoted to Chief Officer was another great step to keep building a solid career in Maersk Supply Service.

What are your goals for the future at Maersk Supply Service?

I think it’s important for the development process to keep gaining experience and learning more each time. I want to continue my career path at Maersk Supply Service, and the next step would be being promoted to Captain. 

I am very proud of working at Maersk Supply Service and very grateful for all the experience I have been able to gain. It’s also important to mention that despite a huge part of the offshore vessels’ crew are male, the amount of women working onboard is increasing each time more. This gives the opportunity for young girls and trainees to get inspired and be looking forward to working onboard as well.
