About Rødne


Rødne is one of Norway’s largest fast ferry companies, mainly serving western Norway’s Rogaland and Hordaland counties. Our boats cover a range of services, from fjord cruises to route traffic and ambulance boats. Founded in 1956, Rødne is a solid, growing family-owned company with a reputation for looking after our staff as if they were our own kin.

Rødne values experience as well as fresh blood and fresh ideas. We want younger colleagues to develop their skills, and take on new challenges and responsibilities under some of the most experienced and dedicated coworkers in the business. Our captains, for example, have commanded everything from giant cruise ships to supertankers, yet chose to sail for us in waters close to home.

In return, we expect our team members to have the personal and professional qualities and determination to assure our guests ''the optimal fjord experience."

We have room for a whole range of staff on land and at sea, from veterans to apprentices, and especially encourage woman to seek a career in the maritime sector. We also have an apprenticeship program for deckhands.

We always need extra help during the May-September season.

We offer:

  • Good working conditions
  • Permanent employment
  • Temporary jobs (especially May–September)
  • Promising prospects
  • Contractual wages

If you are interested in joining our team, please send your CV and a letter of application for consideration.

NOTE: All applicants must be fluent in at least one Scandinavian language.

"Fantastic place"

”Rødne & Sønner has been a fantastic place to work,” said Captain Martin Tengsdal when he retired in 2017 after 45 years with the company.
