Nikolai Skov

Offshore Sales Executive (Formerly Sales Executive Graduate)

After completing my studies in marketing management at Esbjerg Business Academy South West, I was offered a three-month internship in VIKING’s marketing department, where I was involved in planning and implementing a firefighting equipment exhibition in the United States. At the end of the internship, the HR department had a conversation with me about my future.  


Employed as graduate

Starting up again as a graduate this time, I joined the NEMEA (Northern Europe, Middle East, Africa) sales department, where I got great hands-on experience. I talked to colleagues and visited customers in Denmark and Germany to boost my product knowledge. Later, I transferred to VIKING UK, where I focused on sales to shipowners with 1 to 15 vessels and gained valuable field experience. I recently joined our team in Aberdeen as Offshore Sales Executive.

What’s so special about VIKING?

Of course, the company’s history is amazing, looking at the way things have developed since it was started – particularly the way it has grown to become a global company today. And the VIKING spirit is unique. We are here to make a difference and help build a safer world - and you feel that.

People help and look after each other. When I joined the company, I received a lot of help from my colleagues, so I quickly got a good impression of the people I work with. Also, I was quickly given more and more responsibility and this, together with being able to manage my own customers, is very motivating for me.
