Think big. Make big. In our production hall in Schiedam, we build the world's largest and heaviest cranes and the latest offshore wind equipment. How about a crane that is more than 150 metres high? That is almost as high as the Euromast in Rotterdam. Are you the skilled craftsman or woman who wants a job where no two days are the same? Great! Because we are looking for a CNC Milling Operator!

About our organisation

We design, build and maintain the world's largest and heaviest equipment. We belong to the best in the world. Just like our customers. They are global players in the offshore wind, geothermal, oil & gas, leisure and civil sectors. What else makes working at Huisman so special? Much of what we do has never been built before. That makes it special!

"We value flexibility and initiative. Don’t be afraid of experimenting. If you work on new ideas, they will become real."

Korneel van der Meer, Product Manager

About the position of CNC milling/ boring machine setter-operator

Do you want to become a CNC miller? Then our BBL training programme to become a CNC Miller is definitely for you! You will work four days and go to school one day. We pay for this day too, of course. And once you work at Huisman, you'll have every opportunity to take further training courses. But we haven't reached that point yet. First, your training to become a CNC router. Read more about it below.

What do we expect of you?

Are you passionate about making beautiful products from a block of steel? If you already have a senior secondary vocational education diploma, you can join as a CNC milling/boring machine setter-operator straight away. But if you have the ambition to obtain your senior secondary vocational education diploma, we offer a block or day release course (BBL) where you not only earn a salary but can also get your diploma.

As a BBL student of technology at our company, you work four days a week as an approved work placement company. You will be undertaking various activities and get the opportunity to develop yourself in the field. In addition, you go to school one day a week to brush up on your theoretical knowledge. You work together with fellow specialists and contribute to healthy and efficient production.

As a CNC milling/boring machine setter-operator, you are responsible for the machining techniques. The CNC milling machine is most important. You are involved in programming and setting up the machines, and you think about and contribute to the improvement of methodologies and production techniques. The ultimate goal is to make high-quality products for the customer, within the specified tolerances and values.

As a CNC miller/boring machine setter-operator, you produce large parts, including slewing bearings with a diameter of up to 7 metres! Does this sound exciting, but would you rather work on an even bigger project? How about a bearing section with a diameter of up to 30 metres?

As a professional, you work with a small team. Together you take on the challenge of delivering engineered components for Huismans’ ever-growing systems in time and according to the highest standard.

  • Practical and punctual;
  • A result-oriented team player;
