Management Traineeship

Storing vital products with care

Are you looking for a career opportunity that adds value to people’s everyday lives? Then you are in the right place. Because working at Vopak means you are part of a company that contributes to society by storing products that are vital for our daily lives.

We are the world’s leading independent tank storage company, we connect the supply and demand for liquid bulk products that are part of things you use every day: your mobile phone, computer, running shoes, some of the foods you eat and many more.

Vopak started out 400 years ago storing tea, a very important product for the society at the time. And as the needs of the world evolved, so did the products that we stored. And this evolution is happening in the company right now with the exploration of new energies and the possibilities to store sustainable energy, like hydrogen and solar.
