  • Closing date:

The position
Curiosity, decisiveness and confidence; that is what you will bring to the table for this versatile role in risk management. Your playground will span massive projects in dredging, offshore wind and offshore oil and gas. Each project will come with its own technical, financial and organisational risks, which you will be managing with the help of the project team. You will be operating at the forefront of innovation, learning new things every day. Interested to join?

Your responsibilities
From the Dutch Delta Works to the Palm shaped islands in Dubai and to vast offshore wind farms, we build landmarks all around the world that protect us against floods and that contribute to sustainable development of society. To shoulder the burden for our clients, we also regularly take responsibility for the entire project life cycle, from design to completion and maintenance. With this increased responsibility, risk management becomes only more important in order to ensure the successful completion of the works. As a Risk Manager, you will facilitate the risk management process - identify, prioritize and manage potential risks - in both the tender and realisation phase. This process is complemented by conducting qualitative and quantitative analyses (through Monte Carlo simulations). You will also document and keep track of the status and implementation of the necessary risk response actions. Last but not least, you make sure risk management remains high on the agenda and is spread in the organisation. This is an exciting but above all responsible role, in which your knowledge and ingenuity will be called on from Rotterdam to Singapore!

Job requirements

  • Thanks to your proactive approach, problem-solving capacity, curious attitude and perseverance, you make a constructive and valued contribution to projects and to ongoing development of the team and department;
  • At least a Bachelor's degree, in civil engineering, engineering management, economics (or similar);
  • Three years of experience in risk management, including Monte Carlo simulations;
  • Excellent command of the English language, both orally and in writing;

  • Focused on results and comfortable working with numbers;

  • Knowledge of @RISK;
  • Experience in writing EMVI / MEAT plans is a definite advantage.

We offer
The informal atmosphere encourages you to show initiative and take responsibility. Learning and development benefits us both. Thanks to having a central role within the project team, you will see many aspects of our projects, enabling you to develop a broad focus. You will also get a challenging position in a dynamic environment with high growth ambitions and, next to your benefits package, room for new initiatives and ideas.
