Finance Traineeship

Trainee and Junior Project Controller

As a Trainee you are the high potential of the future. That means that you will be given responsibility within Boskalis from day one. As a Trainee you will start in the position of Junior Project Controller. Part of the time will be spent at our Papendrecht office, but most of the 18-month Traineeship will take place at one of our international projects. The projects vary in size, complexity and time and you will often be working under challenging circumstances. As a Junior Project Controller you will be the project manager’s right hand on financial matters. You will not only be involved in administrative and financial reporting, but also in tax and contractual, treasury and insurance matters. Having a job in finance at Boskalis means more than interpreting figures. Because what really matters is the story behind the figures. Your insights and analyses will ensure that the right decisions can be taken. You will work on projects in a small team and together you will have to get the job done. So you will often have to lend a helping hand. Are you up for the challenge?

Focus on your development

Your development will be the focus of the Traineeship. That means that both your professional and personal development will be a key point of attention during your 18-month Traineeship. You will, for instance, receive training in time management, presentation skills and teamwork. But also safety training and professional and competency-oriented training. Every six months you and the other Trainees will get together for training and of course to share experiences. During the Traineeship you can also always count on the support of your personal mentor. In a nutshell, as a Trainee you are not alone at Boskalis and we invest in your development just as much as you do!

After the Traineeship

Once you have completed the Traineeship you will be able to call yourself a fully-fledged Junior Project Controller. Similar to the Traineeship you will continue to see to various financial aspects of projects. As a Project Controller you will be working on projects abroad for two months and then have a month’s leave.
