From the very beginning, we want you to feel the same pride that our colleagues, some of whom have been with us for over forty years, feel. No matter your experience. Take a look at what it is like to intern, graduate or start your career at Heerema Marine Contractors.

Starting at Heerema Marine Contractors

Heerema has been solving challenges for over 60 years. With four of the world's largest crane vessels, we have built a reputation for excellence, innovation, sustainability, and safety.

Our portfolio of achievements includes a record-breaking lift of 17,000 MT in a single lift, being the first offshore contractor to install wind turbines offshore, and removing over 500,000 MT of decommissioned oil and gas platforms from our oceans. However, our journey is far from over, and we welcome you to join us in creating waves of your own at Heerema!

Graduate Student Engineering

"Almost three years ago, I started as a working student during Covid. I was mentored by many experienced colleagues who were open to teaching me anything and everything. I chose to start working alongside my studies because I wanted the theories taught in the classroom to come alive in practice. Heerema was, and still is, the place for me because it is a unique company. Everything is so big; I knew I wouldn't find projects or vessels of this size at another company. That's why I continued my journey at HMC by writing my graduation thesis here and look forward to many more opportunities!"

“The advice I would like to give to people who are thinking of joining us: embrace feedback and be open to learn from others. Since joining Heerema, I have experienced a very big learning curve, which has led me to where I am today. ”

Offshore training

By joining Heerema, there is a big chance you will get to visit one of our vessels offshore. But before you get to visit one of our enormous floating islands, you will need to undergo training!

While the Helicopter Underwater Escape Training (HUET) may be the most familiar aspect of the BOSIET (Basic Offshore Safety Induction and Emergency Training), it is only a part of the comprehensive training program essential for those working offshore.
Over the course of three days, you will undergo training in general safety, escaping from different types of locations, sea survival, and firefighting. This training prepares you for various emergencies that you might encounter while working in the high-risk offshore environment, where safety is our top priority.
