State Trading Organization (STO)’s subsidiary Maldives Shipping Service (MSS) has procured a new container ship, and has opened applications for jobs on the ship.
The job vacancy announcement posted by STO on Wednesday shows the company is looking for multiple employees, including engineers, electricians and masters.
The salaries range from MVR 38,000 to MVR 115,000.
STO is also looking for seamen, cooks, mess boys, welders, and oilers. The salaries for the positions range from MVR 15,000 to MVR 19,000.
MSS had previously procured a container ship and bulk carrier.
STO said the new ship was a 680-container ship, the same as the previous one.
