The position

32 kilometres of dyke reinforcements and a new motorway. Cylindrical sluice gates and pumping stations that can discharge 235 m3 of water every second. Guard locks, a solar farm and the cutting for a unique fish migration river. But also 25 years of maintenance on this Dutch icon! All part of the renewal of the Afsluitdijk, a project to which we will be devoting all our Marine Ingenuity over the coming years. Do you like juggling multiple maintenance projects at the same time? Do you want to contribute to maintaining Dutch ports, canals and coastlines with your financial expertise? If so, apply for the role of Project Controller at Van Oord!

Your responsibilities
As Project Controller, you will be contributing to securing the Dutch economy and preserving our coastline in your own way. We will be counting on you when it comes to setting up, implementing and managing the finance & control aspects of maintenance projects. To name a few of those: you will be responsible for ensuring that the cash management is reliable, that the project administration can withstand any scrutiny, that sound financial reports are published in good time and that the various audits and tax affairs are meticulously managed. Moreover, you will always be available for questions from the Project Manager and the rest of the team. In other words, you will have an important role in a wide range of projects, projects you can be sure will present you with plenty of challenges every day and call on your knowledge and ingenuity from Den Oever to Kornwerderzand.

Job requirements
You will be working on anywhere between 3 and 10 projects at different stages. Which is why we need your capacity to set priorities, plan and organize, as well as your flexibility. Your integrity and problem-solving and analytical skills are reflected in your work. In addition, you bring the following to the table:

  • A completed degree in business economics at higher vocational (HBO) level;
  • 3 to 5 years work experience, preferably within a project environment;
  • Software skills, such as Excel and ERP packages, preferably SAP or Unit4;
  • Excellent command of Dutch and English.

We offer
From our head office in Rotterdam, you will take responsibility for the financial side of our maintenance projects. You will often be found in the field and will be given room to establish yourself as a part of the project team. Alongside an attractive package, you will be given plenty of opportunity (and a training budget) to develop professionally and personally, internationally too, so that you can continue to grow within your role.
