It goes without saying that proposals are put together in close cooperation with various departments, such as the in-house engineering company, HR, finance, legal and insurance.

A tender team will be set up for complex and often multidisciplinary projects in which case you will head up a team consisting of various departments of the Boskalis in-house engineering company.
