The Global Graduate Development Programme (GGDP) is an intensive 2 year programme designed to introduce bright, ambitious and self-motivated individuals to the operational, commercial and functional areas of the V. organisation.

The aim of the programme is to provide on-the-job learning, which will fully immerse you in the world of shipping.
