NYK Changes Employment Scheme

NYK Changes Employment Scheme

Tokyo-based shipping company NYK has decided to implement a new employment scheme in which Japanese seafarers will be engaged to work only on vessels and not within NYK’s offices.

NYK says that seafarers with their specialized knowledge and skills are becoming more needed as the company becomes more active in its LNG and offshore businesses.

The company is thus making this move to fill positions that will require seafarers with particular technical expertise. The employment of several officers and engineers is currently scheduled to take place from April or October 2016.
