Job Description

Faststream is currently seeking a highly motivated and talented individual to join a Junior Bunker Trader role based in Monaco.

While previous sales experience in the maritime industry would be advantageous, it is not a mandatory requirement. We welcome applications from recent graduates and individuals without relevant experience who possess a strong aptitude for sales and negotiation and a keen willingness to rapidly acquire the necessary skills in the trade. Knowledge of the Italian language would also be considered a very valuable asset, as a significant number of the company's clients are based in Italy.

This role requires the right to work and live in the European Union - no sponsorship is available.


  • Collaborate closely with Senior Bunker Traders to secure new business opportunities and establish enduring relationships with clients and key industry contacts. Provide exceptional trading services to ensure utmost customer satisfaction.
  • Familiarize yourself with customers, suppliers, barge operators, port authorities, and surveyors, becoming a trusted point of contact for customer inquiries and transactions.
  • Acquire a solid understanding of the basic bunker purchasing process and commonly used terms. Assist in gathering and following up on pre-sale and pre/post-delivery information.
  • Conduct market research and actively prospect for new business opportunities. Develop and maintain your own portfolio of customers and suppliers.
  • Engage in daily trading activities on behalf of clients, optimizing rates to mutually benefit the company and the client.
  • Provide assistance and support to the trading team with miscellaneous tasks as required.
If you are eager to embark on a challenging and rewarding career in bunker trading, this is an excellent opportunity to join a dynamic team and a supportive work environment that encourages professional growth and development.
