How you can make your mark

Our current AO/IC framework (internal control handbook) needs to be evaluated and you, as a 4th year Finance & Control graduate student, are invited to contribute.

Why the adjustment? The upgrade is needed since we, as Boskalis, increasingly present ourselves as EPCI contractor within the Offshore Energy construction industry. As opposed to an EPC contract, the offshore facility has to be transported and installed at the project location. A handbook to standardize and strengthen the administrative process, comes in handy. This handbook will be the future foundation for multiple projects. A possibility to gain experience in an international environment and kick-start your career at Boskalis. 

Your responsibilities as a Finance & Control Graduate Intern: 

  • Contribute to the growth of Boskalis towards becoming a full-scope transport & installation contractor at the high-end of the offshore energy market by:
  • Creating process descriptions;
  • Defining key responsibilities (RACI matrix);
  • Describing control measures like reports, approval flows, sample testing;
  • Setting up Risk & Control matrices.

Your qualities

You can make your mark as Finance if you are/have: 

  • currently enrolled in the final year of a Bachelor’s degree program in Finance & Control; 
  • the ability to combine theoretical knowledge with practical considerations;
  • either an energetic person with strong communication skills, excited to explore the unknown and actively obtain new information OR someone with a critical attitude, happy to investigate and apply your analytical skills on existing documents to get to a best practice;   
  • affinity with Offshore Energy activities; 
  • a good command of written and spoken English.
