Boskalis’ fleet consists of more than 650 vessels and floating equipment including our associated companies and represents our main capital asset. As a trainee in Fleet Management, you can make your mark at Boskalis in our tendering, engineering or operational teams. Here, you’ll be working on Offshore Energy or Dredging projects all over the world, as well as in Central Fleet Support in The Netherlands as well as from our headquarter in Papendrecht. Are you open to new experiences, willing to learn and take responsibility? The Boskalis Fleet Management traineeship might be just the right challenge for you!
Over the course of 18 months, you will work on 2-3 different assignments where you will assist Senior Engineers or Technical Superintendents while taking responsibility for the tasks at hand and meeting your own deadlines. You will be expected to increase your knowledge and skills through active engagement with your colleagues and managers in various stages of diverse projects. Together we will shape the direction your career could take, paying attention to the areas in which you want to develop your skills and knowledge within the scope of your assignments.
You will, together with your colleagues, supervise and manage project work, ensuring high-quality, on-time delivery. In this operational phase, you will be dealing with a range of vessels and other equipment from our huge fleet. In some roles there is a good chance you will start on a multidisciplinary project where you will be guiding the vessels, arranging all logistics and technical work ashore. Budgeting and helping with the repairs might also be a part of your role. The location of your work will vary each time, depending on the projects to which you are assigned.
Next to learning on the job, we offer an extensive personal development program in between your assignments. You will be able to set personal development goals as well as follow training courses where you can work on your leadership style, communication, and stakeholder management. Next to personal and leadership development we find it important to give you the opportunity to become a better professional too: specific training in your areas of expertise will be added to the program (examples: heavy lift modules; fluid mechanics and pumping technology; and much more).
External trainers and coaches and a Boskalis mentor are there to help you in your development.
As a Trainee you will be exposed to assignments in both our Offshore Energy and Dredging departments. When you are committed to an Offshore Energy project, you may prepare at the office for repair, conversions and mobilizations and execute on site at a repair yard and/or onboard of the vessel which can be international or national. During a Dredging project, you will work on location for six weeks at a stretch, followed by four weeks leave.
Working at Boskalis is about creating new horizons and sustainable solutions. In a world where population growth, increase of global trade, demand for (new) energy and climate change are driving forces, we challenge you to make your mark in finding innovative and relevant solutions for complex infrastructural and marine projects.
Within a vibrant company culture, you will be working as part of a diverse, international team of experts. We offer you the opportunity to realize your full personal potential and expand your professional career by creating new horizons. Together.
Warm welcome: We warmly welcome our new colleagues, so they feel at home as soon as possible. During your onboarding program, we give you all the ins and outs about Boskalis!
The Boskalis campus: Boskalis is located in Papendrecht, where all our disciplines come together on-campus. Bicycles are available on site to make it easy for you to move between buildings. There’s also an electric bus for those times the weather turns wet! Two lunch canteens, a sports field and shower facilities can also be found on our campus.
Young Boskalis: This is a platform created by and for the Young Boskalis generation. The Young Boskalis Board focus is to represent young employees and look after their integration into the Boskalis family across the various divisions. Every year Young Boskalis organizes various activities, such as a visit to a project or vessel in the Netherlands, but also a Friday Drink on the first day after payday.
Besides work: There’s never a dull moment at Boskalis! During and after working hours, there’s always a lot going on. Most activities are initiated voluntarily by our colleagues, and they are very diverse. There are sporting activities like hockey, cycling or running (for a charity), and the sailing regatta, organized by several large dredging companies. And for the less physical types, there are the Body of Knowledge meetings where you can share and learn about a variety of topics. Perhaps you’d even like to launch an activity yourself?
