Cost Controller Civil & Environmental Works

The biggest lock in the world in Antwerp, the durable and architecturally high-quality Residence Palace in Brussels, the integral A11, and the Oosterweel Link in Antwerp are all Jan De Nul Group Civil works. This was the cradle of the group and it is still an important division. Jan De Nul Group focuses on complex projects and offers private or public sector clients a comprehensive and tailored package. This approach, plus technical skill and years of experience, puts us amongst the very best companies, including for civil works.

As cost controller you are responsible for the analytical cost monitoring and budget control of the projects assigned to you within civil and environmental works. You draw up reports in order to safeguard the financial and operational objectives of the sites.
Your main tasks and responsibilities:

  • Drafting budget control and financial reports on the assigned sites. You put together the forecast and provide an update on the order book.
  • You are jointly responsible for monitoring all costs and revenues from the assigned project and you draw up reports on the results.
  • You report to the managers/directors regularly, systematically, and objectively so that the players can make any adjustments in time to achieve the financial and strategic objectives.
  • You give project leaders and site managers an insight into the (present and future) financial results of the project/department and provide support whenever problems of a financial nature emerge.
  • You keep yourself informed and maintain an up-to-date knowledge of events and developments in the field of controlling and you consider ways of helping the team to raise the controlling to a higher level.

You report to the controlling manager of civil & environmental works and work together closely with your fellow cost controllers, site managers, and the management.
