Work and Education

Excellent career opportunities and teaching materials at all levels

The port of Rotterdam offers career opportunities at all levels, whether you have completed an intermediate or a higher vocational education or have a university degree. Even primary school pupils can set to work with educational material about the port, and with a good reason: by getting children involved in the port from an early age, together we can ensure that future new jobs will be filled. This is necessary, as quite a few jobs will be created over the coming years.

From cradle to quay!

Together with the port community Deltalinqs, the municipality of Rotterdam and knowledge institutes, the Port of Rotterdam Authority is working on promoting the port as an interesting area for scientific research, internships and jobs. Via the continuous education programme From cradle to quay! we get children, young people and adolescents interested in the port. The programme fits in with six educational stages; from primary school to university. All elements of the project have been developed in collaboration with businesses in the port, educational institutions in the region and various authorities. This allows us to develop an efficient, sustainable and smart port that is prepared for the challenges of the future.
