Technical Traineeship

Depending on your educational background you will start at Boskalis on either the Dredging Traineeship, the Offshore Energy Traineeship or the Fleet Management Traineeship.

Dredging Traineeship

For the Dredging Traineeship we are looking for trainees with a technical background who are willing to travel. You will spend most of your time during the Traineeship at a project location overseas and as a superintendent you will literally have your feet in the clay – or some other type of soil, obviously. Because it is important to us that you get to know the office organization as well, you will also be involved in preparing a project out of our head office in Papendrecht. This will allow you to build up a good impression of the Boskalis organization over the 18-month program.

Offshore Energy Traineeship

Do you want to become an offshore expert? Then the Offshore Energy Traineeship is the ideal start to your career. An offshore energy project involves a tender stage, an engineering stage and an execution stage. In the course of the Offshore Energy Traineeship we aim to introduce you to all these stages, allowing you to build up a good impression of the Boskalis organization over the 18-month program. While a large part of your Traineeship will be spent working out of our head office in Papendrecht, you may also be required to spend frequent short spells abroad or perhaps a longer consecutive period. So you must be willing to travel!

Fleet Management Traineeship

Do you want to repair a trailing suction hopper dredger such as the Willem van Oranje with its 13,917 tons and 12 Megawatt? Then it’s high time you came to talk to us about the Fleet Management Traineeship! During a 18-month Traineeship you will be involved in prepare work for large and small repairs at our office in Papendrecht in which you later will have the opportunity to carry out the repairs and accompany modifications of ships. At the moment we don’t know exactly what the content of your Traineeship will be like, because that all depends on the planned repairs and modifications at that time. One thing we know for sure: Boskalis’ world is extremely interesting for anyone with a background in mechanical engineering.

The high potential of the future

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!
