Can you not imagine life outside of civil engineering? Can you back up a rough estimate with a calculation down to the nearest decimal place? Would you like to be in the vanguard with our tender team, making sure we continue to deliver lots of great projects within the Netherlands in the future? If so, apply for the role of Cost Estimator at Van Oord Netherlands!
As Cost Estimator, along with our tender teams you will be there at the start of all the projects with which Van Oord shapes the Dutch landscape. Making multidisciplinary budgets for often complex dredging, hydraulic engineering and infrastructure projects is what gets you out of bed in the morning because you know that your budget can make the difference between being awarded a project or not. You don't just perform the calculations for projects, you really understand what is going on in the field and advise the tender team, based on your specialism, on the most cost-efficient design. So you start a new tender by working through all the project documentation and a tender kick-off with the team. With all the input under your arm, you start making calculations and where necessary you bring in outside help in order to be able to deliver input to the tender team as soon as possible. The deadlines are often pressing, so moving quickly and optimum communication with the team are key in this role.
Winning a tender is all about the details and creating a detailed budget is in your blood. As a person, you are meticulous and analytical but above all a team player. In addition, you bring the following to the table:
• a qualification at intermediate vocational (MBO) level or above;
• at least 3 to 5 years work experience as a civil engineering cost estimator;
• Excellent command of Dutch, spoken and written
