Hours 40 Hours
Location Sliedrecht

Working as a team with various disciplines.


Iv focuses on the design and construction supervision of all water-related objects in the field of drinking water and industrial water, as well as wastewater and water level management. Due to the growth of our activities in this area, we are looking for an enthusiastic mechanical engineer. In this position, you will be responsible for the design and engineering of the mechanical/installation technical components within a wide variety of projects. Together with the civil engineering, electrical engineering, and instrumentation disciplines, you will work on complex technical objects, prepare cost estimates, draw up specifications, and translate these into a mechanical engineering design draft/quotation. The projects you will be working on mainly relate to polder and storage basin pumping stations, locks and flood barriers, (waste) water treatment plants, sewage pumping stations, and associated (pressure) pipes. Therefore, experience with one or more of these objects is a must. In addition, experience with designing in Autodesk applications is an advantage.

When it comes to water, two (conflicting) aspects can be identified: one is that we need water for drinking, for industry, the agricultural sector, transport and recreational purposes. The other is that water also poses a threat in relation to flooding and rising sea levels. Because water quality, water transport, safety and water management often go hand in hand, solutions must be sought across that entire bandwidth. Iv provides integral and innovative advice for projects of all sizes and complexity in water installations and hydraulic engineering. Sustainability is paramount. For example, Iv has developed the CO2 tool! This tool calculates the CO2 reduction in water treatment processes. Would you also like to work on sustainable solutions in water quality? Iv has some of the most challenging projects ready and waiting for you!

What do we expect from you?

We are looking for a Mechanical Engineer with a higher vocational (HBO) degree in Mechanical Engineering or Civil Engineering (specialising in Health Engineering) and approximately 3 to 5 years of relevant work experience. You must be solution-oriented, honest, social, cost-conscious, accurate, and have a great sense of responsibility. The successful candidate must have an excellent command of Dutch and English.

What do we have to offer you?

A challenging and varied job at the most diverse engineering company in the Netherlands! With over 900 specialists all sharing the same passion for technology, we work on solutions for the greatest technical challenges within the most diverse projects.


Iv is a globally operating engineering company that undertakes the most challenging technical issues! Our engineers have unique knowledge within the sectors and disciplines in which we operate, such as Industry, Infrastructure & Traffic, Buildings & Installations, Handling, Offshore & Energy, Maritime and Water.

We are a club of people with a genuine passion for our profession, and we take great pleasure in our work: Our expert knowledge of technology enables us to achieve the utmost for our clients.


At Iv, we believe in the importance of being a good match for all our colleagues. We work hard but, of course, give something in return. For example, an annual bonus of 7%, profit-sharing, a flexible pension scheme, a fixed travel allowance, a work-from-home allowance, and various career and promotion opportunities in the form of education, courses, and training. Something else that also holds great importance to us is that we love to go out together.
