How do we make the Netherlands climate-proof?


At Iv, we work every day to help build a climate-proof Netherlands.

An example of our work is the complete preparation of an area development in relation to the water assignment, which involves the design of the surface water system, the sewerage system, and the groundwater system in a climate-robust way and establishing a connection with the inflow of clean seepage water. We also like to work on stream restoration projects in which we restore the balance between water retention and water drainage, thereby giving nature an extra boost. In addition to these extensive projects, we provide consultancy and design services for numerous projects within our company for water system-related issues. This could be the design for a wadi within an area renewal, the provision of geohydrological consultancy on the fresh/salt ratio in a tidal area or the drainage of a new bridge.


We are looking for a new colleague who will bring both substantive expertise and process experience to our team. As a Project Leader/Consultant, you will work on issues across the breadth of the entire field and provide leadership to project teams and independent substantive consultancy. Our Water Systems team operates within the fields of surface water, geohydrology, and urban water and provides services for both internal and external clients. The Water Systems team is part of the Hydraulic Engineering sector. Other teams within the Hydraulic Engineering sector include the Hydraulic Structures team, the Water Safety team and the Geotechnics team. In addition to project management and contributing substantively to projects as a consultant, you enjoy building a network, proactively approaching the market and taking new ideas a step further. In short, you will contribute to our team's further growth and professionalization.


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 have a higher vocational/university level degree (HBO/WO) in Water Management or Civil Engineering (or similar) and at least five years of experience in water systems. You have experience in leading projects and providing substantive consultancy within the field of water systems. You have excellent communication skills, an eye for quality and can set priorities appropriately. Your extensive network paves the way for you to score new assignments. We consider your enthusiasm and drive to be equally important. You know exactly how to reveal the client's actual needs and how to get the best out of your team. Besides your regular work location (Sliedrecht, Den Bosch, Haarlem, Nieuwegein), you are also willing to work from other locations.

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.
