Our people work in various disciplines in teams for engineering and production, fitting and service.

We are currently seeking a Project Work Planner with a background in marine engineering or mechanical engineering.

You function as a coordinator between the suppliers (e.g. cutting companies, machine builders) and the customer (the internal production departments). A unique role and central point of contact for the flow of materials for the yacht equipment. Most important here is the correct interpretation of the drawing package so that the materials can be ordered from the correct suppliers. Your responsibilities also include monitoring the materials in the various phases, such as construction and assembly.
