Internship Digital Transformation


❗️ Our VOX Digital Transformation team is expanding, again! ❗️

Are you currently at the end of your studies and looking for a new challenge? You can be part of the Digital Transformation within the maritime industry, in a great team of young entrepreneurs!

What you will do

Van Oord's digital transformation is about creating value for our customers and supporting our business with digital technologies. How? By adopting a new way of working and encouraging others to demonstrate digital leadership. This means that we continuously monitor new technologies and translate them into added value for our customers and our business.

You will be part of our team and will support you in strategic and creative thinking, but you will also be asked to work on slides and other assignments. This means that you help prepare meetings, conduct conversations, but also co-develop the digital product (creative part). The higher the degree of independence and responsibility, the more you can take the lead in projects. A great opportunity to further develop yourself! Your further tasks:

  • Supporting product and service design (agile) and innovative projects;
  • Thinking about and discussing the strategy and market needs of the business units;
  • You work and contribute to the creation of workshops to come up with creative digital concepts that meet the needs of the customer;
  • You support the VO:X program by preparing dashboards, management presentations and progress reports

During your internship you will work on projects of great added value and improve your pitch and presentation skills in no time! We are building a community of people who see opportunities, want to implement those opportunities and continue to improve themselves. Ready to get on board?!

Who we are looking for

  • You are currently following or just completed a study at university or bachelor level in the direction of a commercial or technical study (a student job is also possible);
  • You are available for at least 5 months for at least four days a week;
  • You have a good command of the English language, both verbally and in writing;
  • Customer oriented, you are able to conceptualize customer needs;
  • You are a team player, eager to work with cross-functional and international teams;
  • You have an innovative mindset and like to challenge yourself and others to keep improving.

What we offer

You will end up in a unique company with a typical Dutch product and an international character. The department has a “start-up” working atmosphere: enterprising, young, dynamic and innovative.

We also offer you a unique opportunity to experience what it is like to work in an international organization. In addition, this internship is of course the ideal opportunity to work in a large company such as Van Oord. You work at the head office in Rotterdam and you receive excellent support.

In addition to hard work and learning a lot, the social side of an internship should of course not be missed! Van Oord has a Young Van Oord community, which organizes various activities ranging from excursions and lectures to workshops, brainstorming sessions and sports competitions.
