Job Description

Are you ready for the challenge of solving complex problems within manufacturing in a fast paced and dynamic environment? Do you thrive being exposed to diverse assignments in different teams across Europe?

Within the Operations stream of our 2-year-rotational European Graduate Program, you will be exposed to two 12 month assignments within manufacturing that are integral to our business.

Your first assignment will be taking place in the Environment, Health & Safety department in our production site in Soignies, Belgium. In this role, you will learn everything around the work of an EHS Engineer, supporting and taking the lead in crucial initiatives like our Slittler Safety Project, the renewal of the Environmental Permit, Energy Consumption, Plant Solvent Management and Fire Prevention. For the second assignment, you will have the chance to sign up for one of our projects available in our European Production sites, such as:

  • Support of continuous improvement projects with respect to Production Excellence, Environment, Health & Safety, Quality, Maintenance, Process Excellence or Enterprise Lean Six Sigma.
  • Optimization projects across the whole European network
  • Involvement in project work including installation of new equipment / machine modifications etc.
  • Manufacturing key projects and people management roles

During the program, it will not only be about becoming a technical expert. To really drive a sustainable continuous improvement in the sites, you will need to demonstrate and develop further your communication and leadership skills to make an impact and contribute to our ambition to define and deliver world class manufacturing processes, products and services.

While you are on this exciting journey, you will receive plenty of support along the way. Our Mentoring Program, combined with a concentrated blend of experiential on-the-job learning, classroom and online training will enable you to build your skills and transition from college to the corporate workplace, leveraging strengths and defining your career path.

  • First relevant practical experience (e.g. internships, project work), preferably in an international manufacturing environment
  • A good level of English as well as French
  • Willingness to relocate into different projects and locations across Europe during the program

We are looking for agile problem-solvers who enjoy working in a dynamic and collaborative environment, and who are striving to make a difference by contributing their own strengths and ideas.
