About this role: Traineeship Structural Engineering

Brunel is looking for international specialists who are interested in putting their structural knowledge to use in the Netherlands.

Are you an English speaker from, in- or outside of the EU and in possession of a structural engineering education? Then Brunel might have a spot in their engineering community for you!

It is Brunel's mission to make the specialist of today fit within the Dutch engineering firms.

Brunel noticed that the transition from University to a Dutch leading engineering firm does not run smoothly all of the time for non-Dutch speakers. Although they have the right base of knowledge, it is difficult to find a position where you are given space to adjust. We see that the leading organizations still work with Dutch documentation for example or their team is just not well adjusted to English. If a non-Dutch speaker would like to join such an organization it is usual difficult to arrange. Even when you are open to give learning Dutch your all. This is where Brunel wants to give you a jumpstart!

What you need to bring:

This development is plan is available for specialist who can tick these boxes:

  • Ability to apply for a 'highly skilled migrant' status OR a 'Search year' (only applicable for non-EU citizens);
  • You are in possession of an University degree in Structural Engineering and/or civil Engineering;
  • Willing to invest in a 3 year development plan with Brunel.


We invest in non-Ducth speaking specialists to get you up to speed. It is possible to join Brunel for a work/learning combination. Brunel has a powerfull network with numerous leading companies. Together with them, we joined forces to come up with a curriculum that will minimize the gap between University and Market. When you join this way of working you can expect:

  • Module 1: Dutch course;
  • Module 2: Structural course with a Dutch institute;
  • Module 3: Soft skill training.

During these modules you will already be working at a company that fits your needs. And (ofcourse) also receive your monthly fee's.
