Does seeing the words 'export credit agency' and 'political risk insurance' make you sit up? Then being an export credit risk manager at Van Oord is the job for you. From under the water to up in the air, our projects are often unique and are without exception brimming with technical, financial and organisational challenges. Would you like to contribute to healthy finances for these sometimes spectacular projects? If so, apply for the role of export credit risk manager at Van Oord!
The projects we carry out at Van Oord can be particularly complex in technical terms and the same applies to the financial side. Making the financial arrangements with the minimum of risk is your role as export credit risk manager on large international projects. You will advise the business with a comprehensive risk framework for each specific project and devise financial solutions to hedge risks and purchase standard or custom solutions from export credit insurers and banks for us. You will be at the table with the various stakeholders, from dredging companies to insurance companies. In other words, without you there is no deal. You make sure that your, and our, knowledge of financial risk management, treasury and export finance is up to scratch and people can always come to you for advice on those areas. With your knowledge about closing deals, you will help your technical and business development colleagues to understand and manage financial risks. This is an important role, in which your knowledge and ingenuity will be called on from our Rotterdam head office to the dredgers in South America.
You have gained extensive knowledge of export credit insurance and export financing, for example at a bank, insurance company or corporate. The fact that you are no pushover in negotiations does not detract from a flexible attitude and a creative approach to finding solutions. A sense of humour and an understanding of business relationships help you get your solutions accepted. In addition, you bring the following to the table:
- University-level intellect
- At least five years’ experience of export credit insurance
- Excellent command of Dutch and English
The opportunity to apply your knowledge of export credit insurance and financing to a wide range of projects in the Netherlands or anywhere in the world – projects that are of great economic or ecological importance and often push the boundaries. You will also get:
- A salary to match your responsibilities
- An excellent package
- The possibility to arrange your working hours flexibly
- Plenty of scope (and a training budget) to develop professionally and personally, including internationally, so that you can continue to grow within your role
