Junior Tanker Analyst Role Overview:

Our research division works primarily in support of our ship broking business providing invaluable analyses of the shipping and commodities markets, as well as the global and local events that help shape them.

Its day-to-day responsibilities include generating and distributing daily reports for clients, briefing Howe Robinson brokers on what the markets are doing, researching and presenting bespoke findings to clients, addressing conferences and fielding enquiries from journalists. In doing so, our research analysts ensure that Howe Robinson Partners (HRP) is synonymous with expert, up-to-the minute market insight.

Join our research division and from the start you’ll be involved in gathering market information, setting up commercial databases, writing about the commodities markets and macro-economic factors and progressively expanding your understanding of the shipping and commodities markets.

Career progression would include increasingly client-facing activities such as giving market presentations and potentially foreign travel.

HRP’s business is first and foremost about building relationships – both internal and external – so you will need excellent interpersonal skills, along with the ability to form effective, professional networks quickly. Beyond that, you should be intelligent, analytical and passionate about understanding why things happen the way they do.
