We believe that good business starts with skilled and satisfied employees, and we are looking to invest in the right person to shape into a qualified and experienced manager who will advance their career as a part of the Sharp Family business.
What is a “Manager in Training”?
We are looking for an instinctive team-leader who is interested in boosting their career by gaining hands on experience with a well-established and continually growing company.

At Sharp, we believe that our employees are our greatest asset, so we want to help our Managers be the most equipped as possible to operate business smoothly and efficiently on a daily basis.

If you have a drive to learn, are looking for a clear path to advancement, and are looking to gain valuable work experience that can turn into a defined career trajectory in operations, then you are who we are looking for.

As a family company, we believe in raising up our own, so your efforts will not go unnoticed; We believe in promoting from within and giving our staff every opportunity to leverage their own unique skill sets while become dedicated representatives of Sharp Bus Lines Limited and our values.
