Milan, 23 November 2015 – Prysmian Group, world leader in the energy and telecom cable systems industry, is launching the “Make It” recruitment programme, aimed at engineers and technical staff with manufacturing experience. It is seeking process, maintenance, design and quality engineers, as well as other technical specialists, to cover key roles in the manufacturing area in one of the company’s centres of excellence located throughout the world. The profiles required include a degree in engineering, or equivalent, and 3/5 years work experience obtained in similar positions in a previous professional context, a good command of English and leadership qualities.

The Group is aiming to identify and develop the manufacturing sector’s best talents, offering them the opportunity to make full use of their skills and expertise. Through a four-year professional pathway, “Make It” offers a top training scheme involving the Prysmian Group Academy, which will focus on further developing the skills essential for the career of the candidates selected. The programme will include two weeks training in the Milan headquarters and two weeks in the new Manufacturing Academy in Mudanya (Turkey), a specialist centre that is due to be inaugurated in January 2016 in one of the Group’s major plants and will allow highly specialised personnel to be trained.

Prysmian’s success and leadership are strongly linked to the quality and skills of its own resources; ongoing learning, training and the opportunity for real and concrete professional growth are the key elements underpinning the company’s philosophy and an extensive human capital development strategy. ”Make It follows another recent initiative, Build the Future, the placement programme aimed at young new graduates. This demonstrates just how strongly Prysmian believes in the value of human capital and the importance of investing in young people” stated Fabrizio Rutschmann, Prysmian Group’s Director of Human Resources and Organisation. “Our future lies with their growth.”

With 89 plants and various centres of excellence distributed throughout 33 countries, Prysmian Group represents an organisation committed to ongoing industrial investment – amounting to €163 million in 2014 — which makes it a world leader in its sector, particularly in key submarine cable and optical fibre segments.
