Your job

Royal IHC’s Dredging Advisory Services (DAS) department is looking to expand its team of dredging advisors. As a Dredging Specialist DAS, you will work at the Dredging Advisory Services department of IHC Technology, based in Kinderdijk, Netherlands.

DAS is part of the Corporate Discipline Technology, the R&D and Innovation Centre of Royal IHC. DAS serves an advisory role in supporting the design process of a wide range of dredge installations. Being part of the DAS you play a key role in the selection of the proper dredge (mining) equipment and its corresponding operational requirements. This will be in close contact with IHC’s sales and design & estimation departments which enables you to work on innovative and challenging projects. As part of the advisory role, you will also partake in R&D related projects on hydraulic transportation and pump applications, both from a desk study, test environment in our laboratory and operational perspective.

You will be responsible for the following aspects:

  • Dredge pump type selection and its corresponding drives
  • Dimensioning of dredge line components such as pipelines, nozzles and orifices
  • Loading time and production calculations
  • Prediction validation and measurement support at (sea) trials
  • Sales and customer support
  • Dredge (mining) related consultancy
  • Equipment advise on slurry transportation systems for dredge and mining equipment.
  • Review and evaluation with Technology colleagues and Design & Estimation colleagues.
  • Support in R&D related projects on hydraulic transportation and pump applications
  • Assistance during test trials in our laboratory and during operation

To do so, you will work in close collaboration with many business units within Royal IHC. Within the wide scope of dredging operations, you will make important choices in order to offer our customers optimal performance of their equipment that makes the difference.

Your Profile:

To be eligible for the position at Dredging Advisory Services, you must have:

  • a technical higher vocational (bachelor) or academic higher level (master) of education; preferably mechanical engineering, process engineering, civil engineering or mining
  • basic knowledge of hydraulic transport principles
  • experience in the dredging operation (not necessary, but desirable)
  • Soft skills (problem solving, communication, etc.).
  • Flexible, cooperative and independent mind-set.
  • A customer-oriented attitude.
  • Hard skills (like Matlab and Pyton, good communication skills, in both English and Dutch).

Please note that only candidates with valid EU work visa will be considered as viable candidates.

* These requirements give a direction to the profile we are looking. At Royal IHC, we warmly welcome anyone to join us, regardless of their background, disabilities or challenges. For example: research shows that male candidates apply if there is a 60% match and women only when there is a 100% match. Do you not meet all the requirements but do you think that this is the position for you? Then we would like to invite you to apply.

Royal IHC offers you:

  • A gross monthly salary between €3620 and €5279 +8% holiday allowance (based on a fulltime working week).
  • Good work/life balance with 40 vacation days for full-time employment with the option to buy or sell (additional) leave.
  • The possibility to work from home with associated expense allowance and/or to perform the work on the basis of flexible working hours (depending on the position).
  • An average salary pension scheme in which matters are properly arranged in the event of accidental death, incapacity for work or unemployment.
  • Good disability insurance.
  • Participation (on a voluntary basis) in the Social Fund, on the basis of which care and related costs are reimbursed that are not covered by your health insurance.
  • Discount on VGZ's additional healthcare insurance.
  • A training budget of €1,500 every three years.
  • Unlimited sporting in our own fitness room (in exchange for the sustainable employability day).
  • € 0,21 per kilometer commuting allowance.
  • A profit-sharing scheme.
