International corporate volunteer programs in many countries

Every year, dozens of European citizens under the age of 28 take part in international corporate volunteer programs and spend six months to two years abroad at one of our locations in Japan, China, the United States or elsewhere.

Taking on a position of responsibility in another country, they achieve three objectives:

  • Live a unique experience with colleagues from different cultures.
  • Forge a network of contacts and open up international career opportunities.
  • Become part of our pre-recruitment pool of candidates.

10 to 15 V.I.E.

programs offered by Arkema each year

Most V.I.E. assignments are in Operation/Production, R&D, QHSE and business-related activities.
