Life at Maersk Tankers


A forward-looking culture with a strong heritage

At Maersk Tankers, our Core Values  – Constant Care, Humbleness, Uprightness, Our Employees and Our Name – define the way we do business and interact with stakeholders. In short, they guide our decisions and actions. We are an independent, family-owned company that was acquired by A.P. Moller Holding in 2017. Our culture is inclusive and flexible, and we encourage our employees to take on new challenges and generate ideas so that, together, we can ensure the company’s continued success.  

Employee benefits, flexible working hours and support for families

Our flexible working policy offers employees the best possible environment in which to balance the commitments of work and private life. Our global Happy Family programme makes life easier for employees with children and families. By offering yoga, training and social events, Maersk Tankers provides a balanced set of activities that enrich employees’ lives. Our parental leave policy supports colleagues as both parents and employees, and contributes to our goal of building a more gender-balanced workforce.

Promoting diversity and inclusion

We are committed to fostering diversity and inclusivity in the workplace, in accordance with our Core Values. Our aim is to promote a culture that allows all employees to feel included and valued at work, so that they can realise their full potential. This increases diversity of thought and helps us attract and retain employees from the widest talent pool, regardless of gender, age, nationality and experience.

Our employees are the foundation of our business

Our employees are the foundation of our organisation and they make our company thrive. For Maersk Tankers to be successful, we must be customer- and partner-centric, fast and agile in our decisions and actions, and accountable for the company’s performance. To that end, our employees enjoy trust and a corresponding level of freedom. We promote personal responsibility, creativity, innovation and solution-oriented thinking. And, we provide development opportunities and believe in the power of mutually constructive feedback. We want to build a company culture that is open and fosters respect, appreciation and support at all levels and across departments.
