Are you curious, eager to learn and you have a passion for Finance? Then the Boskalis Finance Traineeship might be the perfect place to make your mark as a finance trainee!. Working in project controlling gives you the opportunity to get involved in international Dredging and Offshore Energy projects within Boskalis. An unique opportunity to get acquainted with the entire Boskalis organization and a perfect kick-start to your career within our company.
What you will be doing
As a finance trainee you will be part of the project team for a Dredging or Offshore Energy project team, and this often means working in challenging conditions. The projects you work on will vary in size, complexity, and duration and your workplace will depend on the project itself. For example: as a finance trainee your first assignment might be working for one of our unique, offshore energy projects from our Papendrecht office. Your next assignment could be for the development of Manilla International Airport – one of our biggest projects ever – location in the Philippines.
During your assignments you will get acquainted with the Way of Working within Boskalis, work in a dynamic and challenging environment and operate in a project team that contributes to our impressive projects. These assignments will be the ultimate preparation into your development as a project controller.
Working within the Dredging division will imply one or more international assignments in various countries around the world. An assignment abroad will cover a period of 6 months, in which you will be working on a project location for six weeks at a stretch, after which you get four weeks of leave to go home.
In the Offshore Energy division, you will be working from our head office in Papendrecht on offshore energy projects for a period of 6 months. You will be part of a multidisciplinary project team and working in close collaboration with a senior project controller and other members of the team. The execution of the offshore energy projects is in different countries in the world. This gives you the possibility to travel to the project site office.
As a finance trainee you assist the project manager (and senior project controller) on all financial matters within a project. This means that you:
Next to learning on the job during your assignments, we offer an extensive personal development program in between your assignments. You will be able to set personal development goals as well as to follow training and 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: specific, mainly internal, finance courses are added to the program (for example how to deal with international taxation and hedging of foreign currencies). You will get introduced to various departments like treasury, insurance, group reporting and others. On top of that you will visit specific company locations, like projects of the various disciplines you are not assigned to, yards where ships are docked, or sites where our equipment is stored and maintained. External trainers and coaches and a Boskalis mentor are there to guide you.
This is what you need to make your mark as a finance trainee:
Working at Boskalis is about creating new horizons and sustainable solutions.

Abbe's final Traineeship assignment is in Qatar, after a year on projects in Mexico, Nigeria and Abu Dhabi. 'I learned quickly about our inter-office accounting methods and systems and haven’t seen much of the Netherlands the past year!' He also had time for his hobbies: outdoor sports and travel.
‘On a project, our working day is twelve hours: taking measurements on land and water with advanced equipment, using sound and GPS signals. We process the results in a project office to create maps and charts. The unpredictability and variety are the things about this job that appeal to me.’
