Working with us

Finnlines is a leading shipping operator of ro-ro and passenger services in the Baltic Sea and the North Sea. We are a part of the Grimaldi Group, one of the world’s largest operators of ro-ro vessels and the largest operator of the Motorways of the Sea in Europe for both passengers and freight.

We are a reliable and motivating employer, and job satisfaction is one of our main values. We treat our employees with fairness and equality, rewarding the merit. Our personnel consists of many nationalities, where all age groups are well-represented.

At the end of 2016, our crew consisted of 1,627 persons in total, of which 934 on board and 693 on shore. The average employment length was 14,8 years for shore personnel and 9,2 years for sea personnel.

We are proud of our employee’s professionalism and we aim to have the most competent and motivated personnel. We believe that it is through job rotation that a holistic understanding of our business is achieved. We support this during every position vacancy by re-designing the team’s job descriptions in order to be able to offer as motivating tasks as possible for all our existing team members. Through our internal job market, we have also been able to understand our employees’ career aspirations, and most of the time fulfill them.
