Making a difference in people’s lives while you work with clients to successfully deliver projects. As Medior Consultant Material Handling Systems you will become part of the combination between global expertise and local knowledge. That is how you help deliver a multidisciplinary range of consultancy services for the entire living environment!


What you do as Medior Consultant Material Handling Systems

"With your experience in Material Handling Systems and keen analytical insight, you will come up with the best mechanized solutions for your international customers in no time."


How do you mechanize logistics processes for lingerie and what forces are released by a 20ft air cargo pallet? How do you find a balance in investments in mechanization and automation versus manpower? Typical material handling questions you have come across in recent years. As a Medior Consultant Material Handling Systems (MHS) at Districon, you can further develop your experience in this discipline.


You will do this by:

  • making a difference for an air cargo carrier anywhere in the world, for a Benelux wholesaler in DIY or a European distribution center of a world-famous sports brand;
  • understanding processes and, with an open mind, devising original and optimal mechanized solutions and working these out in a design program such as AutoCAD;
  • giving advice and presenting the results and findings convincingly to the client.

Where you will work

Royal HaskoningDHV is a global engineering, project management and consultancy firm, with 6,000 colleagues in 140 countries. Together we work on projects that have a positive impact on people, our living environment, and the economy. With the Business Line Industry & Buildings we serve a broad, international market. We work on projects within various markets, among which: consumer goods, pharma, logistics, data centres, energy, healthcare, government, and education.

You will be part of the department Supply Chain & Logistics which consists of our global supply chain team Districon. Our highly motivated team combines a unique mix of process experience, data science expertise, digital tools, and technology to deliver future-proof solutions which add value throughout the entire chain - from raw material to end consumer. By doing this, we ensure our clients can make informed decisions on strategy, tactics, and operations. Do you want to know more about our services or the projects we work on? You can check it out on this webpage.

You will be working in the Advisory team, which consists of around 25 enthusiastic and driven colleagues. Together with the other Business Consultants with different expertises, you spar and constantly challenge each other to get the best out of yourself. You give direction to the further development of the Material Handling Systems discipline within Districon.

What you bring

A great passion for optimizing processes and devising mechanized solutions. Your experience shows your ambition to develop in the MHS field, both as an Engineer and a Consultant. You are reliable and persevere until you find the right solution. You are flexible, like to visit your customers abroad if necessary and a changing work place is no problem for you. As a real team player you operate effortlessly in multi-stakeholder environments and you work well in teams, both internally and externally.


Furthermore, as Medior Consultant Material Handling Systems you are:

  • analytically strong: you see through and simplify complicated processes and draw the right conclusions based on logistical characteristics;
  • inquisitive: you always want to know exactly how things work and you get to the core of the question;
  • result-oriented: you get a kick out of delivering a good MHS solution within the deadlines of the customer;

As a basis, you bring along:

  • a completed university degree in Mechanical Engineering, Technical Management or comparable education;
  • about 2 to 5 years of work experience as MHS engineer or developer;
  • experience with design (such as AutoCAD), (3D) visualization and simulation programs;
  • excellent command of both Dutch and English.

What we offer you

At Royal HaskoningDHV we offer a great working atmosphere in which organizational and personal development take central stage. Our assessment and rewarding process will always be based on your personal competences. We offer you a wide range of projects in which you can participate and gain experience. You will learn from working with experienced consultants and get a glimpse of the various areas of expertise we have on offer. Learn and experience in order to map out your own career path.


We combine hard work with delicious lunches, Friday afternoon drinks, barbecues, winter sports and once every two years a weekend away with the entire company. If corona allows us, of course. In any case, a good work-life balance is important to us.


Furthermore, we offer:

  • A great work-life balance, including a company laptop and phone, so you can work wherever and whenever you want;
  • Participation in the multi-year development program 'Expedition Districon' that consists of coaching and training of practical skills and your consulting- and coaching skills;
  • A well-facilitated home office, so you can work partly at home and partly in the office;
  • Travel allowance for own or public transport;
  • A personal budget to spend, for example on a bicycle or buy extra holidays, but you can also have it paid out;
  • 28 vacation days with full-time employment;
  • Besides the development opportunities in the most beautiful and challenging projects, we also offer you:
  • A competitive primary salary and pension accrual through our own pension fund;
  • Plenty of training and development opportunities.

You will work in our office in Amersfoort. But you have access to all our other offices (eg: Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Eindhoven, Nijmegen).
