The position

Do you literally think of IT from Rotterdam to Dubai at 'groundbreaking IT'? an As an IT Solution Consultant at Van Oord you can indulge yourself.

This has the necessary consequences for our IT solutions and design choices. Do you dare? Then apply as an IT Solution Consultant at Van Oord!

The IT Innovation department is focused on conducting research into, testing and advising on the latest cloud and other technologies.

  • a salary that suits your responsibilities
  • more than average number of holidays
  • a variable bonus
