Document Controller

Job description

The official document flow is a vital link within projects, and legislation for both the offshore and dredging industries is becoming increasingly strict. Royal IHC is carrying out a wider variety of projects, which calls even more for a professional approach to the processes in the department along with enhanced cooperation between Document Control and other disciplines.

To do this, you will establish a filing structure and then collect, develop and assess information that will subsequently be released to internal and external stakeholders. You will do this aided by the latest product developments and take into account any changes to guidelines and legislation. In addition, you will play an independent role as regards internal and external stakeholders.
