RH Marine realises system integration of electrical and automation systems on board naval vessels, submarines and luxury superyachts. A complex but fascinating field of work full of innovations. Every ship is custom-made for the customer and after christening we remain responsible for maintenance and upgrades. So it remains ‘our baby’ throughout the life cycle. We have recently received some nice new orders and therefore we would like to expand our Schiedam location with a Mechanic Panel Building. The vacancy is a full-time position.

As a Mechanic Panel Building, you will be part of a team of experienced specialists who are happy to share their knowledge with you. In total, the team consists of thirteen (Managerial) Mechanics. Like you, they have a varied job, because they are constantly making ‘specials’ for our customers. Examples of products they build panels for include: special consoles, main switchboards, distribution panels, control cabinets and drive systems. Besides the fun, informal team of engineers you will be working with, you will also have regular contact with colleagues from the testing department. This is because they test the products you have been working on first.
