International Business Controller (Foreign Projects)

Willemen Group has 2,400 employees making it the largest family-run construction group in Belgium. Our group contains many contracting firms, subcontractors, and property developers. We offer our customers a highly complementary range of construction activities, from civil engineering and industrial construction to residential and utility projects to road construction, either alone or in consortia. A turnover of 750 million euro is achieved across all branches annually.

Our many impressive Belgian construction projects have not gone unnoticed internationally. In recent years we have been increasingly active abroad: on the one hand to shape our growth plans and on the other hand to respond to the increasing demand from a number of emerging markets. Especially in Africa, Willemen Group wants to use its expertise, but there are also activities in Central and Eastern Europe. Our added value? Outstanding know-how and project management, together with the involvement of local people and resources. The embassy we built in Kinshasa is most certainly a prestigious international reference. We are currently building a new container terminal with a quay length of 1,200 metres at a 53-hectare site in the port of Tangier. It will be the first automated container terminal in Africa.

We want to bolster our team and are looking for an International Business Controller for our foreign projects.
