Senior Purchaser Civil Works

The biggest lock in the world in Antwerp, an innovative quay in Panama, the durable and architecturally high-quality Residence Palace in Brussels, and the integral A11 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.

We’re in the starting blocks to take part in the Oosterweel Link and lots of other challenging civil projects where your talent can certainly provide added value!

From the central purchasing department you are actively responsible for project-related purchases for large and medium-sized projects assigned to you.

Your main tasks and responsibilities:

  • Sending out correct and targeted price requests.
  • Following up and analysing price quotations.
