How you can make your mark
You can make your mark as Trainee if you want to learn, encounter and experience a lot in a short period of time. As Trainee you will be part of the tendering-, engineering- or operational phase of a dredging project like the landmark polder development in Pulau Tekong, in Singapore.
In the tendering- and engineering phase you will be involved as Trainee Engineer with translating client requirements to optimal economic proposals and technical designs and work methods. Or you ensure that the proposed solution is competitive and engineering is fit for purpose and completed within the given timeframe.
During the operational phase of a project you will work as Trainee Superintendent and there is a good chance that you will be flying out to work on a multidisciplinary project. Our fleet consists of around 900 vessels and pieces of machinery and in the operational phase, you work closely with these assets.
Your work location for six consecutive weeks will be on a project site after which you will have four weeks of leave.
