My name is Nils De Jong, Country Manager for Svitzer Angola and I am looking for our new HR Manager to join the Svitzer family based in Luanda, Angola.

If you are looking for an engaging role with the opportunity to truly make a difference within our people processes, please apply. In our diverse culture as your leader, I promise to do my very best to support you succeeding every day. What that means for you is we will define together – but I promise that I’ll have your back, empower you and do my best to remove the roadblocks that you cannot remove yourself.

We offer
Svitzer is a towage company, which means we help our customers maneuver their larger ships safely and timely in and out of port. You may have heard about the large container ship stuck in the Suez Canal – our Svitzer tug boats in the region played an active role in supporting the mission of freeing the large container ship from its dire straits and we helped unlock the gridlock that global trade was experiencing due to the incident. I look forward to sharing more about what we do and our important role in keeping the world supply of goods flowing.

You will play a significant role in the creation of a lasting culture of teamwork, lessons learned and knowledge sharing by drawing support from members within Svitzer Globally as well as Regional and Country HR & Crewing colleagues. I am passionate both about our team and the business and my style of communication is open, collaborative and direct. I appreciate that you are upright, structured and collaborative in your way of engaging with our team across functions within Svitzer AMEA Region.

This role is located in Luanda, Angola. We work flexibly, not because there is a policy telling us to, but because it just makes good business and work/life sense and creates an engaging work environment. Some ad-hoc travel may be required once the world allows. This will be planned flexibly and based on yours as well as the business specific needs.
