Your development

You kickstart your career with a lot of training. This isn’t set in stone; it continuously evolves but the following is what you can expect as a minimum.

  • On and off the job coaching by mentor, dedicated business coach and external coach.
  • Internal- and external training sessions during which you and your fellow Trainees discover what motivates you in order to specify your development goals.
  • Safety courses. Safety is top priority within Boskalis and to be able to work on our project you need to follow safety courses such as BOSIET and First Aid.

After a training period you go to an assignment within the Netherlands and/ or abroad. Whatever the location of your assignment; we guarantee you to be taken out of your comfort zone and to gain a lot of experience.
