Marine Ingenuity

Van Oord is a leading international contractor specializing in dredging, marine engineering and offshore projects (oils, gas and wind). We find innovative solutions designed to meet our clients’ and business partners’ challenges. Marine ingenuity is what sets Van Oord apart. In just two words, we show in the clearest possible terms what we do, how we do it, and what makes us different. A passionate, smart, shrewd, international marine contractor – that is how we see ourselves. Projects that are extensive, complex, and that have preferably never been done before are our strength.

Van Oord’s corporate culture is one in which employees are given – and are eager to accept and take – responsibility. We want all our employees to enjoy their work, to work safely, and to feel like part of a team. Working closely with our clients and partners, with respect for each other and the environment, we strive to earn a healthy profit. Our employees enjoy a safe working environment in which they continually embrace opportunities to learn.

Supply Chain

As a graduate of the Supply Chain department, you can work on various graduation assignments such as developing a new Procurement Status Report, developing a transport manual, and developing a roadmap for supplier innovation.


As an intern within Project Control you will work on one of our projects abroad under the guidance of an experienced Project Controller. During the internship you support the Project Controller in managing the liquidity needs and conducting the administration of a project and you report this to the head office.


Our English-oriented technical traineeship takes one year to complete and is an excellent stepping stone in your career, an ideal chance to get to know various aspects of the marine contracting, dredging and offshore energy sectors in a short period of time. By working in various departments, and on projects and on equipment around the globe, you will get to know Van Oord in an intense way.
