Junior Electrical and Control Engineer (M/F) NETHERLANDS

Ref No : MO-016132


The position focusses on the design and implementation of electrical control systems for dredging vessels.

Tasks & Responsibilities

Your primary task will be the execution of your own sub-projects and as well as providing support for the bigger projects. In this role, you will have the opportunity to learn from a Senior Engineer and put this new knowledge directly into practice in your own sub-projects. You will work on a wide range of electronic control systems. The core of your activities will consist of the design, programming, and configuration of controls and systems. This concerns both standard and customer-specific orders. In this role you will mainly provide support to one of our Project Leaders or Senior Electrical Engineers. Furthermore, you will have the opportunity to carry out smaller sub-projects independently. With your knowledge and skills in the field of designing and programming electrical engineering systems, you will be able to provide excellent support to the Instrumentation team and have the freedom to grow in a role that you will partly organise for yourself.


  • You are enthusiastic about control systems and are looking for personal growth opportunities in both the engineering phase and the execution phase;
  • You are analytical, goal-oriented, and a good team player;
  • You have a qualification at intermediate vocational level 4 (MBO+) or Bachelor's degree level (HBO) in (Maritime) Electrical Engineering, Industrial Automation or Information Technology;
  • You are familiar with the application of programming languages;
  • You have experience with reading electrical engineering (EPLAN) drawings;
  • Practical experience with incident analysis at both software level and hardware level is an advantage;
  • Practical (work) experience with dredging and/or offshore is a plus;
  • You have a good command of English and Dutch, both verbal and written;
  • You are willing to occasionally travel and work on location, including in foreign countries;
  • Finally, you have sufficient experience of working with the various MS Office programmes.

Department Information
