Immediate boarding for your career abroad!
The V.I.E. program allows young citizens of the E.U. countries (28 countries), aged 18 to 28, to be sent abroad on a professional mission of 6 to 24 months, aged between 18 and 28. For Saint-Gobain, it is a Junior Mobility program that allows us to detect young talents.
The Group offers a wide range of professional assignments in support functions (Finance, Purchasing, HR) as well as at the operational level (sales development, Marketing, logistics, R&D or Production) located in the country teams, in factories or in our research centers.
We recruit our VIEs according to the needs of the countries, missions and the final decision on the candidates is therefore left to the countries. We are happy to have VIEs from several countries in the European area and we are targeting a 20% non-French participation.
As the objective of the V.I.E. is pre-hiring, each V.I.E. benefits from an individualized follow-up from before his departure, then upon his arrival on site, and until the end of his contract.
The contract is punctuated by two key moments: an integration survey after two months on site and a VIE assessment/definition of the professional project 5 months before the end of the mission. This follow-up allows us to identify positions that may correspond to the professional expectations of our V.I.Es.
Each VIE can define a career plan for Saint-Gobain in another job area, in another country (under a local contract) or in another sector than those in which he or she has completed the assignment.
His or her mentor, as well as the Corporate and French HR teams, will support the definition and implementation of this project.
Since 2018, Saint-Gobain has invited its active and recently graduated VIEs to participate in a Saint-Gobain Group VIE Grand Prix.
This is an opportunity for young Talents to present their assignments to the Group's managers and to create important links for their future steps in the Group.
Saint-Gobain participates every year in the V.I.E. Forum organized by Business France.
This is an opportunity for us to meet candidates who are interested in the Group and who have targeted the assignments we offer.
These meetings at our stand allow us to select profiles, sometimes atypical, that can meet the specific needs of our activities around the world.
Business France is the national agency for the internationalization of the French economy, which manages and develops the V.I.E. program (Volontariat International en Entreprise) under the supervision of the Ministry of Foreign Trade.
