Job description

Do you have two to three years’ experience as a Superintendent or in a comparable role in the offshore or dredging sectors? Are you ready to take the next step in your career but is a standard job not your preferred option? Are you looking for prestigious and challenging offshore projects? Then the Boskalis Offshore Energy division would like to get to know you better!

The offshore intervention projects executed by Boskalis are focused on the development, construction, maintenance and dismantling of oil and LNG import/export facilities, offshore platforms, pipelines and cables and offshore wind farms. As Superintendent you will play an important part in realizing these projects.
You will be given the opportunity to work with the project team to design offshore projects of varying size and complexity within the Installation & Intervention unit of Boskalis Offshore Energy. Projects relevant to you as Superintendent will include for example, dredging works at landfalls and the construction of offshore wind farms and the installation of offshore cables and pipelines.
As Superintendent you will work with the project team on all the preparations needed before a project can be launched. During the execution stage you will be responsible for supervising and managing the work on the project to ensure that the work is completed on time and to a high standard of quality. Your responsibilities will include:

  • translating project plans into a detailed schedule and working methods so that the project can be realized efficiently and effectively in accordance with the contractual agreements (safety, quality, planning and budget);
  • consulting with internal and external stakeholders to ensure that the right working methods, employees and equipment are available when they are needed;
  • identifying and reporting deviations in the contract and taking appropriate measures;
  • adopting a coaching style of approaching, instructing and motivating project staff, crew members and subcontractors;
  • building and maintaining an excellent relationship with the client;
  • providing daily and weekly progress reports on the project.

Job requirements

A pragmatic and solution-oriented approach to work with an eye to safety and quality is right up your street. In the role of Superintendent Offshore Operations, you will be able to rely on your technical affinity and experience to make a stable contribution to our offshore intervention projects under all kinds of different circumstances. You understand the dynamics of the contracting world and because of this, you are a team player who finds it easy to switch between the client, the crew of a vessel, external stakeholders and colleagues at head office. In addition, you will have:

  • a Bachelor’s degree in a technical discipline, preferably civil engineering, maritime engineering or mechanical engineering;
  • at least three years of work experience in an international, dynamic project environment;
  • experience with civil engineering and/or dredging working methods and international contracting projects;
