Vacancy

Acquisition based on this advertisement is not appreciated. We usually fill the vacancies ourselves and in exceptional cases we work with preferred suppliers.

As an Electrical Installation Coordinator at EuroSort, you are responsible for coordinating projects on-site from the office, ensuring they are executed as efficiently as possible. You are actively involved in every phase of the installations - from preparation to execution and completion - and ensure their realization according to the agreed schedule and arrangements.

In the preparation phase, you gather relevant information from the Electrical Engineer and the Project Manager, check the delivery of ordered goods, and set up a detailed installation plan and schedule. You are also responsible for engaging sufficient Technicians through temp agencies or contract staffing companies.

During the installation itself, you play a crucial coordinating role. You are the daily point of contact for Technicians and Installation Supervisors on site, provide necessary work drawings, instructions, and reporting formats, and closely monitor the progress of the project. Where possible, you also visit project locations in both domestic and international settings. Especially for larger projects, this may mean you spend several consecutive days abroad.

At the end of a project, you perform a thorough check on the delivery and prepare detailed reports. Continuous optimization of work processes is also an important aspect of your role. Finally, you will often manage multiple projects at once, meaning multitasking is very important in this role. It also requires close collaboration with coordinators from other disciplines, such as the Software and Mechanical departments.

You are part of the Projects team. This team consists of Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Project Management, Installation Coordination, and Commissioning. The components of Installation Coordination and Commissioning are collectively referred to as Realization.

If you enjoy planning processes and see it as a challenge to guide every electrical assembly process in the right direction, then this is the job for you.

Working week

Electrical Installation Coordinator

On an enjoyable day, you manage to complete a complex project on time. It fully meets the customer's requirements and expectations, and everyone is happy.

On a less enjoyable day, there is a significant shortage of materials on site. It takes a lot of time to figure out what is needed, and it is a challenge to get the materials on site in time.

Firsthand experience

An Engineer indicates that a drawing cannot be realized. How do you proceed?

When an Engineer indicates that it is not possible to realize a drawing, it is always inconvenient. Together, you figure out what exactly the problem is. You engage the Draftsperson to modify the drawing. You brainstorm together for an appropriate solution that the Engineer can implement. Since the project is delayed, you also adjust the schedule. You inform the Project Manager and work towards a new deadline.

Growth

I started in 2011 as an Engineer at EuroSort. In addition, I did project-related purchases. Due to the dynamic growth of EuroSort, I have gradually started to concentrate and professionalize myself more in the field of purchasing. Partly because the organization feels great, from which we get satisfaction together, this is a huge stimulus to develop myself further and to keep the enthusiasm high. This is an advantage of EuroSort for me!
