If you’re reading this, it’s probably because you’re considering a career change, seeking a job with real meaning where you can help revolutionise an industry. This could be a life-changing decision for you!
Our success is driven by being preeminent and standing out in our market. Our innovations enable our customers to revolutionise ship safety, performance and crew welfare. We’re inspired to make a difference to our customers’ businesses every day. We continue to grow at a rate many companies would die for, whilst also delivering strong profits to give everyone massive security. We’re looking for 250% growth by the end of 2020 and if you get on board with us, your achievements will help us get there – it’s going to be one hell of a party when we make it!
At Martek, we defy convention. In turn, we’ll expect you to challenge the way things are done, speak up with new ideas and venture from the norm. What makes Martek such a unique place to work is our high-performing culture. It’s based on a combination of personal performance, teamwork, and support. We’re challenging but nurturing, daring but trusting.
People who join Martek share a certain mindset. They’re driven, hard-working, and they excel at giving their best to deliver a legendary customer experience. In return, they enjoy a varied and dynamic career. High performers (A-Players) stay with us and this is a testament to how much we value and reward their contribution.
Show us what you’re made of and we’ll offer you opportunities to move around the business – to work abroad, experience different job functions and tackle different markets. It’s a great way to find the right match for your ambitions and achieve the exciting career you’re after. We obsess about acquiring and developing exceptional people – it’s our No.1 priority. Nothing is more important in our business than our people and that’s why we focus so much of our time on building and nurturing a culture of high achievement.
We believe that company growth and personal growth go hand in hand; one drives the other. So we give you a huge degree of self-responsibility, where you think with entrepreneurial spirit, exercise sound judgment, assume accountability and have the freedom to make decisions. You’ll feel valued, trusted and empowered to act, and give your best to succeed knowing we’ll support you all the way.
While you’re driven to be successful, it’s in our interest too. So we’ll be obsessive about investing in your continual professional development and give our genuine attention to the progression of your career. You’ll get a MINIMUM of 40 hours continual professional development and this is our passion. Most people do a lot more than 40 hours via courses, books (they’re free to you), podcasts, TED Talks,Youtube, blogs etc. Our culture is challenging but massively supportive and you’ll benefit from systematic structured one-to-one coaching from your manager who’s a trained high-performance coach. It’s time-intensive, but we believe it’s crucial. It’s how we recognise your achievements and help you continue to perform – for us, for our customers and for your own ambition.
We also have a very thorough people review process, unlike any we know of. In few other companies could you move from being a trainee sales executive in the UK to being a regional sales manager in Singapore in your second year, as you can at Martek. Whatever career path you can imagine, with commitment and results you can actually make it happen.
As well as being well paid, you’ll get a lot more from us than you’d get elsewhere. You’ll have the freedom to work the hours you need, to get your job done and achieve your objectives. You’ll be free to choose how many holidays you take – it’s up to you. You’ll have a big say in what you’re working on with freedom to experiment, take risks and pursue projects of your own choice to serve our mission to ‘revolutionise ship safety, performance and crew welfare’.
We also want you to be fit and well which is why you’ll get: free fruit and breakfast; subsidised gym membership (5 mins walk away); a Fitbit activity tracker with regular competitions; Westfield Level 2 healthcare cover; free flu jabs. If we’ve had a particularly good month, you may even get a massage too!
Whilst undoubtedly we work hard to be the best in the world, we’re also pretty good at playing hard too! Celebrating uniqueness – we’re here to have fun in an environment where everyone can be themselves. We’ve got a ‘fun budget’ which departments use for monthly social events and full company events. We also go away at least once a year for a Martek adventure – not the usual dull and boring team building rubbish.
“It’s an obsession of mine to create a company culture in which every single person develops the will to succeed and have fun doing so. Acquiring and developing the best talent to achieve things they may not even have thought possible, is my major driver.”Paul Luen, Founder & Group CEO
