Oil Trading, Shipping and Supply



At Eleven, our knowledge of the oil trading, shipping and supply industry is born out of experience. Our parent company Ashley and Dumville, who put down roots in coal and coke sales during the 1880s, saw the family business diversifying into industrial oil trading and shipping in the 1950s, expanding into domestic oil trading and shipping in the 1970s.

This experience positioned us well to understand the needs and complexities of each submarket in the international trading arena and find the best in mid-level, senior management and C-suite professionals within the sector.

We know front office back to front, specialising in trading, origination, sales, derivative marketing and quant analytics. Our risk and finance team are highly skilled at matching candidates with roles in risk management, analysis, finance, compliance and legal, as well as refinery planning and optimisation. We work with candidates in chartering, trading operations, vessel operations and bunkering. To complement our activity in operations, we also represent roles in demurrage, claims and loss control.

Our portfolio of clients globally includes leading commodity trading businesses, IOCs, NOCs, refiners, tanker owners, brokers and investment banks, with a focus on London and Switzerland as well as Singapore, the Middle East and the US.
