Investing in the managers of tomorrow
To support this growth, Proximus is looking for 44 employees with specific skills: data analysts, security experts, project and sales managers and IT architects and employees for the finance department.
Renewed corporate culture with many opportunities
Every year Proximus recruits promising young graduates with master's degrees. For 2015 Proximus is looking for 22 management trainees wanting to start work on 1 September 2015. To enable them to get to know the company well and gain experience, they will work in different departments over a two-year period. That experience will give them the opportunity to subsequently take up a job at Proximus that corresponds with their interests and training.
With 14,000 employees, Proximus is one of Belgium's largest employers. Proximus does not recruit on the basis of technical expertise alone, but looks mainly for attitude, personality and entrepreneurial spirit that fit in with the renewed corporate culture. The employees have many opportunities to take their career and personal development into their own hands. An internal job market and extensive training and learning facilities are good examples of this. In 2014, Proximus invested EUR 30 million in coaching and training courses for its employees. In addition, Proximus attaches great importance to a good work/life balance.
