Working at idwal

We are a Cardiff-based maritime technology company and market-leaders in delivering global ship inspections to an international client base. Operating globally, we are a highly transactional, fast-growth business and have an ambitious plan to continue our growth trajectory over the next 3-5 years.

Whilst we have a 100 year-old history as part of the Graig Shipping Group, we have also revolutionised the industry with the introduction of the first online ship inspection platform and have embarked on a scale-up strategy which has allowed us to bring
a number of technology advancements to our customers, who range from traditional shipping companies, banks, finance houses, insurance companies and brokers. At the simplest level our platform allows anybody to order a vessel survey at any port in the world, then view the results and receive our unique “Idwal Grade”.
This is just the starting point though. Not only does the sheer depth and breadth of data captured create new business opportunities (e.g. market comparison and performance), we’re also able to bring innovative new solutions to market. In addition, we provide a range of other services, to a truly global client base.


Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, like many businesses, we have been working from home for the last few months. Fortunately for us, we
are able to operate seamlessly at home through the use of modern technology and communication platforms which have allowed us to continue working to the same standard and efficiency as always. We will soon be re-opening our office and will be allowing all employees to take an even more flexible approach to working than usual, combining time in the office with working time at home.
