You will be working from our office in Papendrecht during preparation phase, but you will work in a rotation scheme on our project location during the execution of a project.

  • Have experience with currency risks and hedging;
  • Have a good command of Dutch and English in both word and writing;
  • Are a team player with empathetic capacity towards both financial and operational colleagues;
  • Flexible, analytically strong, goal oriented and stress resistant;
  • Have excellent IT skills (MS Excel, INFOR LN, Power BI);
  • You should like to visit our projects abroad on a regular basis. Experience abroad is therefore an advantage.
