Dry feet throughout the Netherlands, you've got it covered.


How do we ensure that dike reinforcements remain suitable and affordable while making the Netherlands climate-proof? At Iv, we love technically complex challenges. Every project is a brain teaser that forces us to think beyond standard solutions. As a Project Leader, you will receive the freedom to organise projects in your own way. You will lead a diverse and enthusiastic team of highly skilled consultants, drafters and work planners, and by deviating from the familiar paths, you will create new opportunities and realise innovations and sustainable solutions.


You will work on water safety projects for a variety of clients. Projects range from HWBP dike reinforcement projects to regional flood defence assessments. Your day may start with preparing a proposal, then reviewing a report or consulting with the team on how best to approach a project, and end with a project visit with the client. You will be our clients' point of contact and are responsible for progress, cost control and quality. You will provide stability and predictability within the team and project, enabling us to exceed client expectations.


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 or university level degree (HBO or WO) in Civil Engineering or equivalent and at least five years of experience in flood defence. You enjoy leading multi-disciplinary project teams, which often consist of a nice mix of experience, enthusiasm and talent. You thrive on guiding and coaching our young, talented people. You have good communication and commercial skills, enabling you to build and expand your network. As a Project Leader, maintaining an overview is essential: you know how to prioritise and have an eye for quality. Your drive and enthusiasm are equally important.


You will be based in Haarlem or Sliedrecht but will also visit many other places and meet colleagues at other locations. Furthermore, Iv offers an attractive work-from-home arrangement. So you will not be tied to a single location. We do a lot to help you quickly feel at home in our diverse, magnificent organisation. In addition to ensuring everything is in place before you start, you will also notice that we organise a lot of social activities.
