Boskalis Traineeship - Track Fleet Management

Are you the kind of person who used to like tinkering with your moped or scooter and, having studied Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Electromechanics or Maritime Engineering, are you now ready for the real work? Are you not worried about getting your hands dirty and can you not wait to get to work repairing or modifying a vessel, such as the suction hopper dredger the Willem van Oranje with gross tonnage of 13,917 and 12 megawatts of propulsion power? Are you a real go-getter who loves traveling and enjoys working with people of different nationalities? Are you full of energy and ready to spend 18 months working with us to invest as much as you can in yourself? Then apply for the track Fleet Management of the Boskalis Traineeship.

Our fleet consists of around 900 vessels and pieces of machinery which, together with our employees, form Boskalis’ real capital. Maintenance on the vessels takes place all over the world, because it goes without saying that the vessels must be in good condition at all times. As a Fleet Management Trainee you will play a part in this. During the 18-month Traineeship you will be involved in the preparation of large and small repairs but will also carry out actual repairs and assist with vessel modifications. Exactly what your time as a Trainee will look like will depend on what repairs need carrying out. But we can promise you one thing: the equipment you will be working on is impressive and powerful, you’ll learn a lot and always have great stories to tell when you get home!
