As a Project Controller, you're not just a number-cruncher; you're the heartbeat of our project team.

Your skills will be crucial in integrating new remote operating technology in crewed vessels, pushing the boundaries of innovation. Your expertise ensures meaningful, accurate, and timely analysis and reporting on the financial performance of our projects.

  • You develop, implement and enhance relevant procedures and processes in close cooperation with the relevant teams to increase efficiency;

  • You control and monitor project processes and documents when relevant (finance, tax, compliance, purchasing, subcontracts, audits, insurance, project risks, etc.);

  • You answer ad hoc reporting requests from management, business control, and/or other relevant stakeholders in the organisation.

Your track record

  • You have BSc. degree in a relevant discipline e.g. Economics or Business Administration;

  • You have 3+ years’ relevant project experience and affinity with a technical environment;

  • You have excellent communication skills at all organisational levels (finance, business management, operations) and an excellent command of the English language (written and spoken);

  • You embrace change and support others in adjusting to new ways of working;

  • You are persistent and proactive in pursuing (financial) project information needed to control projects;

  • You are a team player, you are accurate and have well developed analytical skills.
