AMSOL’s Employee Value Proposition is the set of benefits which employees receive in return for the skills, capabilities and experience they bring to the company. As a permanent employee of AMSOL, each employee enjoys the benefit of a focus on training and development and market related remuneration, whilst also sharing in the growth and success of the business through the shareholding of the AMSOL Employee Trust. 5 pillars form the foundation of the company’s Value Proposition to employees:


The strength of AMSOL lies in its diverse workforce, which sets it apart from other companies in the sector. Women and men of all ages, orientations, cultures and races are supported by a fair and inclusive environment – and our employees reflect the diversity of the societies in which we operate.

We believe that to remain a market leader, diversity of skills, competence, viewpoints and opinions is a key business priority – and our recruitment, retention and development policies reflect this ethos.


“AMSOL is an unfolding giant within the Maritime space, with a culture that resonated with mine. The environment met with my career aspirations.”

“AMSOL has diverse operations and a diverse fleet of vessels which is good for individual growth and experience.”

“AMSOL is a well-established company that cares for its employees and offers opportunities for growth and development.”



AMSOL offers internships and trainee opportunities in various fields such as Human Resources, Procurement, Nautical, Engineering and Marketing.

Applicants must hold a relevant qualification and will be required to participate in developmental activities over a 12 month period which will initially focus on acquiring basic knowledge while working under supervision, and will progress to working independently, with a broadened scope.


AMSOL’s Cadet Training Programme, accredited by the South African Maritime Safety Authority, is apprentice training that fast tracks young people holding the necessary tertiary education qualifications to take up Junior Officer positions at sea.

The company’s programme is a registered learnership programme and, as such, it qualifies for the receipt of sea time remissions (reduced experiential training time), thus making this the most effective way for a person to qualify as a Junior Officer. AMSOL takes on several Cadets at different times depending on vacancies in the fleet.

When there is a vacancy, it is advertised on the company’s LinkedIn page and via recruitment platforms.


Each year, AMSOL awards bursaries to un-bonded students who plan to study Marine Engineering, Maritime Studies and Oceanography or Climatology at a University.

The Programme is advertised on the company’s LinkedIn page when applications are open.
