Young talent: pay attention! Are you looking for a job or apprenticeship as a shipplater, mechanic or welder? Niestern Sander has several vacancies every year. If you have a VMBO diploma (or diploma at a similar level), you are eligible for a paid job or work-learning program of 22 months at BBL2 level. Alternately you are at school in Groningen or working on the construction site in blocks of two months.

During the period you will attend a full day of theory lessons at the Noorderpoort College. In addition to the wage you receive, Niestern Sander pays all training costs for you.


You can apply via MSO Groningen. You can indicate that this is a work-learning program. After the job interview, you can meet your future colleagues in a few days. If possible, you can immediately work on a new ship or repair job. If we find you suitable, we make further arrangements with you about the work, the department and the training you will follow. When you have completed the training, you will receive a nationally recognized diploma and you will be practically guaranteed a job at Royal Niestern Sander and you can possibly follow a training at level 3.
