WORKING AT VOORTMAN
Well-qualified people play a decisive role in the success of our company and our products. We are immensely happy with the one welder who has been working with us for over eight years and in addition is a coach teaching the trade to youngsters. And we mustn’t forget our project lead who is able to make a success of every project based on his professional knowledge and people skills. There is also our engineer who, with his innovative idea, was able to significantly improve the efficiency of a machine which has sold well.
Each and every one of these three people is a professional and we are fortunate to have many of them around. People with knowledge, experience, talent and passion for their trade. We are proud of them! We can never have too many of these professionals. So are you the one professional who can take us to a higher level? Please click here and upload your CV and covering letter.
What is great about Voortman is that everything is done here: from the concept phase, design to the ultimate production of a new machine or product. Everything created on the drawing board is made on location at our company. The variety of activities and jobs offers you many possibilities in your professional role. Your growth may progress from a junior, intermediate to senior in your field, but you can also take a sideways step and go and do another job. With your experience as a professional in the trade, you will be teaching the trade to new colleagues and new starts. In addition to these, there are of course various management roles within Voortman performed by professionals.
