The position

Are you interested in the way we deal with water, the economy and the environment in the Netherlands and do you want to learn all about hydraulic engineering tenders? Then being a junior coastal engineer at Van Oord is the job for you. From deep under the water to high up in the air, our projects in the Netherlands are often unique and are without exception brimming with technical, financial and organizational challenges. Would you like to devise smart solutions for us? If so, apply for the role of junior coastal engineer at Van Oord!

Your responsibilities

The construction of the second Maasvlakte. The complete refurbishment of the Afsluitdijk. The future-proof fairway at IJmuiden. At Van Oord, we have fantastic projects in our portfolio, often of great economic and ecological importance. Your work begins in the tender phase: in a team of engineers, planners and cost estimators, you will create designs for dykes, harbours, coastal and shore work as well as land reclamation, and translate these designs into the best bid and the most efficient execution. Your solutions are smart, cost-effective and feasible, partly because you are making full use of the knowledge and practical experience of your fellow engineers. You make sure your chosen solution continues to meet the client's requirements during execution. This is an interesting and educational role, in which your knowledge and ingenuity will be called on from the drawing board in Rotterdam to our project site in Den Oever.

Job requirements

You are keen to learn all about high-quality tenders and project execution in a wet environment. With an eye for the client's wishes, you employ your analytical skills and your flexibility in order to deliver top quality. You work carefully, preferring to do one calculation too many rather than one too few! You are able to work independently but do not hesitate to call on your colleagues for help. In addition, you bring the following to the table:

  • A Master degree in Civil Engineering and affinity with hydraulic engineering;
  • Some knowledge of waves, derivation of hydraulic load (RISKEER, Hydra-NL) and wave modelling software an advantage (e.g. SWAN, SWASH, Mike21);
  • Creative and communicative;
  • Excellent command of the Dutch language is a mandatory requirement.
