Have you recently graduated in a financial subject and you fancy wearing a casual outfit rather than to wear your suit and tie? Would you like to learn, encounter and experience a lot in a short period of time, but preferably not in a standard office environment?

Have projects such as the creation of the Marker Wadden bird paradise, the development of the port of Duqm in Oman or the Veja Mate offshore wind farm installation always grabbed your attention? While we’re not offering you a job in project execution we do have a place for you within the track Finance of the Boskalis Traineeship.

As a Trainee you will start as a Trainee Project Controller on one of our projects in the Netherlands or abroad. Whether you opt for a national or international start to your career, you will definitely not be opting for a standard office job.

Within the project team you will assist the Project Manager on all financial matters. You will be responsible for the project administration and the total financial reporting of the project. In addition you will be involved in tax and contractual matters, treasury and insurance. As a Trainee Project Controller you have a direct report to the Project Manager and functionally to the Controller of the business unit responsible for the overall project.
