V.I.E program

International experience

Arkema offers « VIE » (volunteers for international experience) placements to young graduates from EU countries up to the age of 28. The duration of these placements abroad lasts between six and twenty-four months, and essentially concern our Plant Operation / Production, R&D, QHSE and Business-related activities. Every year, ten or so young graduates complete a VIE placement within the Group: in Japan, China, the United States, etc.

Training focused on complementarity

For a VIE candidate, this is an opportunity to gain an original experience abroad in a position of responsibility, and expand your horizon on a global scale. In order to carry through your project, you will be required to work with professionals from another culture.

As a result of their « international » knowledge of the Company, VIE candidates are particularly well placed for recruitment opportunities on completion of their foreign posting.
