Are you up for the challenge?

Our Graduate Program provides an immersive experience in our company from day 1. 

The program starts with a two-week Global Induction with trainings and activities led by the Prysmian Group Academy in collaboration with a Top-Ranking Business School. 

Following your induction, you will be part of a one-year job rotation in 2 different departments, in the Country you’ve been hired in: first is Research and Development (R&D) for 6 months and secondly is Operations in one of our production sites for 6 months. 

After the first year of rotation, you will start your temporary local role for a duration of 1 year, following by international assignment for a duration of 3 years. You’ll be assigned either to a technical role in R&D or Operations, mainly based in one of our production sites, strongly linked to the core of our business. You’ll learn new ways of working, acquire new knowledge, meet new colleagues and embrace a new culture! 

At the end of your assignment abroad, returning to the country you’ve been hired in, you will be ready to take on a new responsibility in the technical areas continuing your career in Prysmian Group.
