That’s exactly where you come in as a graduate. If you have finished your studies in marine or mechanical engineering recently and have a hands-on attitude, we want to hear from you. Because we love to speak with like-minded people who are as passionate about ships as we are. Upon successful completion of the 10-12 months traineeship, all participants can look forward to an exciting and promising job entry as KAEFER Project Managers.
