The top reason why people love working at Sarens is the level of freedom or autonomy they experience within their job and throughout the organisation. However, along with this freedom also comes a significant degree of responsibility. We thrive in a dynamic work environment that demands resilience and ownership - either you love it or you hate it.

We firmly believe in granting you the space to take ownership, contribute your ideas, and leave your mark. While we equip you with the necessary tools and training, you are the one in the driver’s seat. It is your initiative that is the driving force behind your growth and your career journey within Sarens. #OwnYourFuture


In the world of heavy lifting, there are no conventional schools to attend. That is why training and development hold a special place at Sarens. Our in-house training centres offer a wide range of high-quality training programs, allowing you to obtain essential certificates. We provide basic and advanced equipment training, soft skills courses and workshops, personalized (internal or external) training on request … and, of course, a lot of on-the-job training. Because, in the field, that is where the most valuable learning happens!

5. Team Blue

"Nothing too heavy, Nothing too high" is not just our tagline, it is the way we behave as Team Blue. It is nice to work with colleagues who share the same ambitions, fostering a sense of camaraderie in an informal setting. We acknowledge that the journey is not always smooth sailing; it involves hard work, unexpected challenges, and the inevitable highs and lows. Yet, we persevere together, conquering difficulties, supporting one another, and celebrating successes.

Additionally, our culture is characterized by fostering an informal atmosphere that embraces diversity and inclusion, prioritizing safety, and our dedication to social corporate responsibility in our actions.

#Nothing too heavy, Nothing too high

In this hardworking environment, we strive to balance dedication, attention to wellbeing, and a lot of fun along the way! Our exceptional projects and their visible, remarkable results underscore the extraordinary journey we embark on together.


As a global company, Sarens takes pride in its diverse and inclusive culture. We welcome all people, no further elaboration needed. In a business where men may still outnumber women, we are committed to an equal workplace. We actively drive initiatives like our Sarens Women Magazine to foster this inclusivity. We believe that our diverse team is a source of strength, driving innovation and contributing to even greater success!


Beyond our devotion to rise to the challenge and facilitate change in the world, we also want to commit to sustainability and positive social impact through some direct efforts. We aim to diminish our environmental footprint via green initiatives (e.g. developing our electrical crane SGC-90, solar panels …), support education (e.g. internships and school visits), and fund charities (e.g. 'De Warmste Week' in Belgium, 'Macmillan cancer support' in the UK …).


No sugarcoating here: we work hard at Sarens. Some roles offer a good work-life balance, while others require intense dedication, flexibility, and passion. While we work hard, we maintain a human organisation that values flexibility as a shared principle. We recognise the importance of good health for both you and your loved ones. That’s why we actively contribute to overall wellbeing by providing the necessary tools and resources, creating ergonomic workplaces, and supporting local initiatives such as the “R U OK” campaign in Australia, yoga sessions in India, and sport events in Belgium.

slider imageFOCUS ON SAFETY

While we have a devoted SHEQ Team, we emphasize that safety is a shared responsibility. We equip our team with the right tools and personal protective equipment, conduct regular safety toolbox meetings and workplace inspections, and provide comprehensive training to ensure everyone's safety. So, if you want to join Team Blue, a safety-oriented mindset needs to be in check! #BeSafe

slider imageFUN

Work hard, play hard. While we are committed to delivering our best on the job, we also recognise the importance of building strong bonds beyond work and celebrating the little moments of joy. This includes informal chats at the coffee machine, international department gatherings, and local initiatives such as sport events, a yearly ski trip, barbecues, and festivities (New Year, Christmas, Sint-Elooi, Diwali …). Plus, a well-deserved beer from time to time to toast to another project accomplishment!
