Working at Hamburg Süd

Work–life balance

Achieving the right balance between professional commitment and personal life is important. That’s why Hamburg Süd offers employees the option of flexible working hours. There are also a multitude of health and fitness offerings, including company sports teams, an in-house fitness center, and workspaces equipped with the latest ergonomic equipment. Regular health days on topics such as nutritional diet or stress management complete the picture. All our ships have gyms on board to enable crews to stay fit. Individual requests are also taken into consideration when scheduling, for example to plan in regular stops on land.

The scope of services may vary between regions and countries.

  • Subsidized dining in the company cafeteria at the Hamburg site
  • Capital accumulation benefits

Personal development

Hamburg Süd promotes the personal development of its employees around the globe, on land and at sea.

This is how Hamburg Süd trains future managers from within our own ranks and helps experienced managers to continue to develop. As a global company, we also offer project-related and longer-term, work-abroad programs that give our employees the chance to live in any of about 100 countries.
