The position
Then being a project planner for offshore wind projects at Van Oord is the job for you. From deep under the water to high up in the air, our projects are often unique and are without exception brimming with technical, financial and organizational challenges. Are you passionate about delivering flawless schedules? If so, apply for the role of project planner at Van Oord!

Your responsibilities
150 wind turbines, which supply a total of 600 megawatts of sustainable energy to 785,000 households – that’s the Gemini wind farm, 85 kilometres off Groningen, which we have built. It demonstrates our pioneering role in sustainable energy solutions and you will be supporting us to continue to play that role. As a project planner for offshore wind farms, you will deliver reliable project schedules  during both tender and execution phases. You will be working with clients, consortium partners and (sub)contractors and advising us on time, progress, resources, opportunities and risks. In order to be able to perform your role properly, you will pay visits and you will travel to our work locations all over the world. It is a multifaceted, but above all a responsible role, in which your knowledge and ingenuity will be put to the test in every phase of the project.

Job requirements
You are a first class organizer who is comfortable employing critical path analyses, 'what-if' scenarios and probabilistic scheduling for optimum project management. You rarely lose the overall picture (and if you do, you quickly regain it). Even if things are sometimes hectic and processing times are short, you continue to communicate and work with others. you are comfortable with short as well as longer trips abroad – on the contrary. In addition, you have the following skills:

  • at least a Bachelor's degree in a technical discipline and sound knowledge of Primavera and other planning-related software
  • extensive experience in oil & gas or offshore wind projects, in both the tender and execution phases
  • excellent command of the English language

We offer
As a project planner, you will join a team of hard-working fellow planners in the Project Planning & Risk Department. Together, you will work on innovative solutions for offshore wind farms, in The Netherlands and abroad. Our state-of-the-art technology ensures that you will always be working at the cutting edge and contributing to pushing back boundaries in order to create innovation. You will also get

  • a salary to match your responsibilities
  • an excellent package
  • plenty of scope (and a training budget) to develop professionally and personally, including internationally, so that you can continue to grow within your role
