Job description

At our independent offshore engineering company of 30 FTE you will lead/head the new Geotechnical department.

Your task is to build relations, take the initiative, show responsibility and to take pride in doing quality work. The job offers quite some challenges but with that also the opportunities and freedom (little bureaucracy) typical of a mid-sized company.

You will execute geotechnical work scopes in-house, at our existing clients or at potential new clients in both the Offshore Wind and Oil & Gas sector. Initially to support our current activities: installation engineering for projects related to subsea cables, pipelines and structures, but later we will also aim to directly engage in other geotechnical projects. During these projects, you will have a direct client interface and report directly to the engineering manager. You will build out the new geotechnical department once you arrive, review work of other engineers, create and manage required tools and set-up a knowledge database. Within 1 or 2 years you will act as a technical lead for junior/medium engineers. Additionally, you will set-up and execute a business development plan for the department together with the overall sales manager.
