Your day-to-day role could involve everything from managing external suppliers to delivering continuous improvements.
Throughout the two years, you will be mentored and guided by a senior Safran professional and will benefit from a wide range of learning and development opportunities. You will also be assigned an informal “buddy” who can offer you friendly, practical advice.
Evidence of written English at interview stage. This will be through providing certification of a formal English or technical qualification studied in the UK or overseas in English. If this cannot be provided you will be required to complete and pass an online SHL English comprehension test as part of the interview process.
To make the most of everything on offer, you must be someone who takes responsibility for their own development and has a real drive to achieve.
Other key areas we expect you to be strong in include:
Not only will you be able to communicate professionally with colleagues, but you will also know how to tailor your language and style depending on who you're speaking to.
Your ability to build rapport with people at all levels and in different countries will help you develop strong networks across the organisation.
We need people who look beyond their immediate responsibilities to consider the bigger Safran picture. How does your role and business area contribute to company strategy? What are the long-term impacts of everything you do?
You love getting your teeth into new projects and challenges, and will always go the extra mile to achieve the best possible results.
Do you recognise and admit your own limitations? Being willing to ask questions and learn from the experience of others is a key factor in how quickly you will progress.
