Values a good “FACE FACTOR”
“I joined Seatrans in 2005 as a cadet, and I now sail as chief officer on the Trans Catalonia. In my opinion, the Trans Catalonia has the best culture to be found in the entire Seatrans fleet. We are a good team and conditions on board are excellent.
I learned about Seatrans from my father, who sails with the SC Astrea. At Seatrans you are not just a number on the crew list – you are recognised, and I like what I would call a good
“face factor” in the Company. It is very much like a family. What I really appreciate is the length of the contracts. We have a flexible two-months-on and two-months-off rota, which is something my family and I appreciate. Being on board the Trans Catalonia is also challenging in terms of the goods that we transport. There is no room for mistakes. However, we benefit from very consistent crewing.”
My entire career with Seatrans
“I began my career with Seatrans in 2011, and I have been with the same company ever since. I started out as a cadet and gradually progressed through the ranks. My ambition
is to be promoted based on my certificates and experience. I like working at Seatrans. It is always hard to change and to feel confident
in new surroundings. The job is hard, but you get used to it. I come from Croatia, a town called Okrug Gornji close to the more famous city of Split, where I attended the Nautical High School.
The theoretical education there is good, but the best way to learn is to be on board and to experience real life. We have a good mutual understanding about this on the Trans Adriatic, and I hope I can advance in the future – you know, better salary and things like that. For me, it would be stupid to jump ship to another company!” we transport. There is no room for mistakes. However, we benefit from very consistent crewing.”
“I joined Seatrans as a cadet in 2015. It is very difficult getting my first
job after school, so I was fortunate to get in touch with the Norwegian company in Constanta in 2014. The following year I signed a contract with Seatrans, along with a number of other cadets from Croatia, Romania and Poland. We were gathered
in Gdansk in Poland for the final course and we were quite nervous, but we were all given assignments. The Seatrans crewing office in Romania also manages dry cargo vessels.
However, I have always been interested in the tanker business, so I asked to be employed on one of Seatrans’ chemical tankers. I am now working on the Trans Catalonia, but I was previously on the Trans Borg, Trans Chemica, Trans Iberia, Trans Holm and the Trans Fjell. “I enjoy working with Seatrans. It is a good and reputable company, and I enjoy the excellent relationship among the crew members we have on board.”
