How you can make your mark

How you can make your mark 
You can make your mark as a Boskalis graduate project engineer if you are eager to learn a lot and want to kick-start your career!  During the Boskalis International graduate scheme you will do three assignments in 18 months and become part of our Offshore Energy Division (Subsea Services) within Aberdeen. During the assignments you will gain extensive experience and have a lot of responsibility, while you team-up with more senior colleagues.  

Starting and developing your career within Boskalis Subsea Services you will have the opportunity to work on ‘one of a kind’ projects. This may be an emergency leak investigation campaign where you are required to successfully locate multiple leaks subsea and then go on to engineer long term solution within a dynamic project team. On another assignment you may be doing the preparatory work in the office for a large decommissioning scope that involves cutting and removing pipework from the seabed, as well as cutting the risers on an FPSO (floating production storage and offloading vessel). You will then be given the opportunity to go offshore and see firsthand the project being delivered in a highly dynamic and exciting environment. 

In between the work assignments you will take part in the personal and professional development program in our head office in the Netherlands.  

Where you will work  
Boskalis graduates from the UK are part of Boskalis Offshore Energy Division and work within our Subsea Services office in Aberdeen. You may spend longer consecutive periods offshore on our vessels.  

The Program 
Before, in between and after the work assignments there is a lot of room to work on your personal development as you will work with top notch coaches and mentors. The program is packed with personal development courses, safety courses and specific Offshore Energy courses.  Together with your fellow trainees and coaches you will set personal development goals and work on them during and in between the assignments. You will build a strong international network in a short period of time.

This is what you need to make your mark as a Trainee:

  • Degree qualified in an engineering related discipline 
  • Recently graduated (with 0 to 2 years of relevant work experience)
