The maritime agency Arriva Shipping AS, which belongs to a Norwegian shipowner, has been dynamically developing on the international maritime arena since 1972. September 2014 saw the opening of a crewing agency in Gdańsk, the main task of which is an efficient and continuous coordination and management of crews.
Our employment agency specialises in recruitment and employment of seafarers and merchant fleet officers. Everyone interested in work at sea is invited to contact us. In our activities, we unconditionally and strictly comply with the arrangements of the Maritime Labour Convention (MLC) 2006.
To those interested in working at sea, we offer convenient, "family-friendly" contracts in fixed rotations and employment in a professional and experienced team on board our ships. Most contracts are signed for a period of one or two months.
Based on our many years experience in work at sea, we do our best to ensure that every member of the crew employed by us has appropriate conditions to find fulfilment in his/her post. At the same time, we prioritise the issues of safety of life at sea and environmental protection.
Thanks to a regular and direct contact with the representatives of a shipowner we can more easily identify and cater for the needs of our employees. We try to be actively involved in their professional development as well as supporting and promoting education and improvement of professional competences.
The headquarters of our office, along with a fully-equipped wharf and technical infrastructure, is located in the town Ølensvåg, situated in Western Norway. Currently, the company employs around 145 people and offers a comprehensive management of a fleet carrying dry cargo. The main territory where we provide our transport services is Northern Europe.
