Vacature Boskalis


How you can make your mark

The success of Boskalis is the sum of a unique combination of people, equipment, activities, and the constant drive to innovate. However, success can only be achieved with reliable financial information. So, it will come as no surprise that a complex finance organization is active behind the scenes in international, capital-intensive, listed companies like Boskalis. Your work will contribute to the greatest precision and enthusiasm on the financial report that are used for internal and external purposes. The insights and analyses of you and your co-workers ensure that we are able to make the right decisions. This creates room for investments and for the further expansion of our company.


Boskalis carries out large projects all over the world, from Oman to Brazil, from Mexico to Russia. Recently, we released the Ever Given vessel that was stuck in the Suez Canal and we started the biggest land reclamation work in the history of our company with the land development design and construction of the Manila International Airport (MIA) in the Philippines. These projects cannot be realized without reliable financial information.
