Track Fleet Management

Your perspective

Our fleet consists of around 900 vessels and pieces of machinery which, together with our employees, form Boskalis’ capital. Maintenance on the vessels takes place all over the world, because it goes without saying that the vessels must be in good condition at all times. As a Trainee of the Fleet Management track you will play an active part in this. During the 18-month Traineeship you will be involved in the preparation of large and small repairs but will also carry out actual repairs and assist with vessel modifications. Exactly what your time as a Trainee will look like will depend on what repairs need to be carried out. But we can promise you one thing: the equipment you will be working on is impressive and powerful, you’ll learn a lot and always have great stories to tell when you get home!

Kick start your international career

From preparing a project out of our head office in Papendrecht to executing a project on the other side of the world: as a Trainee you will experience it all. The amount of time you will spend abroad varies and will depend on the repair or modification scheduled. Be prepared to work according to a rotation scheme where you will be working for 6 weeks and subsequently you will have 4 weeks of leave.

Your profile

Are you ready to leave your mark? This is what you need:

  • Fully completed a higher vocational education (HBO) or university (WO) degree in Mechanical Engineering, Maritime Engineering, Electrical Engineering or Electromechanics.
