Contribute to the infrastructure of tomorrow!

In the RECUMO project, SCK CEN will treat highly radioactive medical waste and the uranium that it contains. This waste flow comes from the production of medical radioisotopes, which are crucial in cancer research and treatments. Thanks to RECUMO, the amount of waste will be drastically reduced, which will enable us to keep the production of medical radioisotopes in our country. To be able to realise this, we will build new cutting-edge infrastructure on the site in Mol by 2023. As Project control officer, you:
Cost control

  •     you are asked to assist the project manager during the whole project, to ensure an effective budget control and to control the project costs (in excel and sap) which are included in the initial budget through project implementation phases.

  •     draw up a monthly summarising report on project planning, comparing with accounting reports (SAP)
  •     develop and implement existing models to communicate about the progress and evolution of the project
