Join the family

Current employee

20-10-2016

To what extent would you say your company is a sociable place to be?

Still family owned, Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines immediately comes across as one big happy family which welcomes new staff. From the reception staff to the MD, everyone is friendly and supportive and even though I am not based at HO in Ipswich, I still feel very much part of the team.

How motivated are you to deliver the company's objectives?

It's hard not to be! You really do feel part of the company rather than just another employee and, consequently, you want the company to do well and feel motivated to support it to deliver its objectives. The longevity of the staff, both on board the ships and at HO, speaks volumes

To what extent does your company support your career development?

It's early days yet, but as staff seem to stay a long time and move up within the company, I would say it is very supportive.

How would you rate your job security?

In this day and age, does any company offer job security? But because it is a family business rather than a share holder owned company full of oversized egos, I'd say Fred.s offers more than most.
