Welcome to October! We’re not sure if you feel the same way, but here at Spinnaker we certainly feel as though this year is flying by. This month we take a look at the process of S&P or ‘how to buy a ship’, along with tips on encouraging your team as a manager.

We also lift the lid on shore-based shipping job distribution in the USA – between the North East (New York/ New Jersey/ Connecticut) and, say, Texas. This is a big area for Spinnaker – we’ve always made successful placements in the USA, but in the past twelve months we’ve had dedicated consultants working for this particular geographical area. Check outshippingjobs.com/northamerica for our latest vacancies.

Finally, we look at internships in our ‘Generation I’ blog. We ask the question: are internships the new degree? What do you think? Let us know by tweeting@spinnakerglobal
