Coordinate your projects from A to Z.


As a Project Leader/Consultant Upkeep/Inspections, you will be responsible for all organisational and technical activities within the projects of Iv's 'Instandhouding' Department. You will lead the team and take care of the project planning, guaranteeing the quality and scope of each project. In addition, your responsibilities include tasks related to budgets, such as preparing budgets and quotations. Your function requires constant contact with the client's project manager to ensure every project runs according to plan.


You will be busy preparing design specifications and coordinating designs within assigned projects. You are skilled in identifying additional or reduced work and preparing cost estimates. You will report monthly to the management and the Sector Head of 'Instandhouding' on the pre-financing of projects. Your role is also advisory concerning upkeep, whereby you will deal with existing and new civil engineering works and provide advice on management and maintenance. You will do this for, among others, municipalities, the Directorate-General for Public Works and Water Management (Rijkswaterstaat), provinces, ProRail, contractors and water boards. Your recommendations and inspections will include a range of (smaller) municipal objects and larger, complex structures such as movable bridges, lock complexes and storm surge barriers.


In short, no two days are the same in your responsible role as Project Leader/Consultant. Your role ranges from conducting inspections, interpreting damage, and assessing risks regarding reliability, availability and safety to formulating upkeep advice and creating policy plans. In addition to visual inspections, you will also use advanced recordings and data from drones, scanners and/or sensors. This will require you to work closely with our designers, structural engineers, measurement and monitoring consultants, and asset management risk analysts.


Iv provides tailor-made and innovative designs and advice for constructing and maintaining sustainable infrastructure. You may already be familiar with our involvement in the new IJMuiden sea lock, the Zandhazen Bridge or the design of the Panama Canal lock gates. By developing and applying the latest technologies, we offer ready-made and sustainable solutions for not only today's societal challenges but also those of tomorrow! We provide integral advice for steel and concrete civil engineering works, hydraulic engineering, spatial planning, upkeep, traffic and infrastructure installations and railways. We also offer specialist services in spatial measurement and monitoring structures, RAMS and risk management, asset management, systems engineering, contract management, project management, and supervision.

What do we expect from you?

You must have a higher vocational (HBO) degree in Civil Engineering or similar, supplemented with extensive experience within the inspection sector. With at least three years of experience in a project manager role in infrastructural projects, you have a well-developed sense of responsibility. You are solution-orientated and strive for optimal cooperation between all involved parties. Excellent command of the Dutch language is a requirement for this position.
