Working at Mammoet
We’ll surprise you
Mammoet is a global company with a diverse team and a history in heavy lifting and transport going back more than 200 years. Although we’re a big company, that doesn’t make us corporate, conventional or stuffy. You’ll get a different experience working at Mammoet.
Everyone who works here is important, and everyone has the chance to make a difference. Just how you do that depends on you – your passions, your ideas, your skills. Whether you’re selling projects to clients, engineering lifts, operating the equipment or sending out invoices, you’ll always have the opportunity to speak up, take the initiative and suggest better ways of doing things.
This desire to make things better is something we all share here at Mammoet and it’s reflected in what we do. On one level, we strive to find smarter and safer ways of doing things for our customers every day. On another, our big projects in energy, industry and infrastructure make a real difference to communities, countries and people all around the world.
The Mammoet culture
The pride and enthusiasm we all share feeds into Mammoet’s atmosphere. Our people love pulling on the red overalls, handing copies of Mammoet World to customers, and catching a glimpse of our mammoth logo on the news. We’re committed to doing our jobs well, while at the same time supporting each other to help make Mammoet a better company. The community spirit throughout Mammoet is hard to beat.
We love a challenge. We want to push the boundaries, and do things nobody’s tried before. Everyone here shares that passion and it leads to a deep sense of commitment.
In our line of work, excellence can only be achieved through teamwork. Everyone has a role, and when we work together we are greater than the sum of our parts. We are honest and open – and even blunt at times – but we respect each other’s skills and strengths. As part of our team, you’ll have the chance to grow as a professional and as a person.
Safety is our top priority. We want to get things done, but what matters more than anything is that everyone goes home safe and sound at the end of the day. Mammoet takes its wider duty of care very seriously – to the environment, to communities and to individuals.
As a global company, Mammoet takes responsibility for setting standards and driving development. Each of us has responsibilities that come with the job, and everyone is jointly responsible for the future of our company. We expect people to speak up if something isn’t right, and to listen to one another. We’re committed to treating people fairly, giving clear and constructive feedback.
