Operational management & work preparation
Reach new heights
Our projects and customers are among the largest in the industry. Examples include gigantic pipeline construction and maintenance projects, as well as the construction or decomissioning of extensive industrial plants. At Bilfinger, you work on efficient and sustainable operations in the process industry. How you prepare and lead Bilfinger's projects makes all the difference. And of course, teamwork is essential for this.
Work planner: A different dynamic every day
Sometimes you work on a large and long-term project, while other times you are involved in urgent or minor maintenance work. Think, for example, of replacing pipelines or fittings on site. Or calculating a project, organising materials and personnel.
In your job, on the one hand you have your feet in the clay - that is, you spend a lot of time walking around outside on location. On the other hand, you are indoors to ensure that projects can proceed according to schedule.
You constantly interact with the project leader, foreman and technicians and anticipate unforeseen issues. That is precisely what makes your job so dynamic and interesting. And of course, safety and quality are your top priorities!

The work of a work planner depends on the discipline you work for. In general, you have the following responsibilities:
- Preparing and planning the technical work.
- Determining material, equipment and personnel requirements.
- On site, recording the work to be carried out, making calculations and quotations.
- Applying for permits for work.
- Consulting with the customer and project manager on the timing and progress of the work. You prepare work instructions, take care of permits and safety plans.
- Supporting the foreman or project leader in supervising the work. You monitor the planning, costs and budget per project.
Superintendent: coordinate work inside and out
In your role, on the one hand, you'll have your feet in the clay - that is, you'll be outside on site a lot. On the other hand, you are inside to make sure projects can go according to schedule. From leading your team(s) and dealing with big responsibilities, to coordinating projects and attending meetings and kick-offs. Time certainly doesn't stand still: you will develop in different areas and have the chance to progress to project leader if you want. A foray into another field is also possible.
