Internal and external training courses

At Witteveen+Bos, you’ll develop yourself first of all by learning on the job. By being challenged on projects and applying and expanding your knowledge and skills on them, you’ll learn more – faster. You’ll also learn from experienced colleagues on projects. To supplement this, we stimulate your development with an extensive offering of internal and external training opportunities.

We offer a wide range of in-house training courses aimed at strengthening personal, social, commercial and leadership skills. You attend these courses in groups, with each group reflecting the diversity present in our organisation. This means you’ll not only get to know colleagues from other disciplines, but you’ll also gain a broader view of our organisation and build up a valuable network. The content and level of these courses are tailored to your goals and the stage of your career you find yourself in. Often, a personal development plan forms part of a course, for which you’ll obtain feedback from your manager and immediate colleagues.

Our training opportunities include courses on:

  • project management;
  • problem-solving negotiation;
  • presentation skills;
  • commercial skills;
  • digital skills;
  • financial analyses;
  • legal and contractual aspects of our services.

Shape your own career
As well as internal training courses, we facilitate a range of external courses of study. These generally focus on technical content and support your development as an expert. Since you’re responsible for your own career, we think it’s important that you take the initiative in commencing a training course or course of study.

Frequently asked questions

What is your vision on career development?

We will give you the scope to deepen, or perhaps widen, your career perspectives by working in innovative projects on varied and challenging activities. You will have a lot of latitude for personal initiative and a great degree of independence. We believe it is important continuously to match your interests and your ambitions to the possibilities that we see for you. This lies at the heart of our vision on career development. Rather than just offering you a job, we want to offer you a career. And you are the orchestrator of your career. 

Vision on career development

What employee benefits do you offer?

Our salaries are in line with market norms and depend on the level and the relevance of your education and any work experience you have already acquired. Holiday pay equals 8% of gross annual salary. At Witteveen+Bos we have a profit-sharing scheme. Employees who excel, in any way whatsoever, may also qualify for a bonus.

Witteveen+Bos is a company wholly owned by its employees. This is not merely a slogan, but is reflected in our ownership structure. All shares in our company are held by our employees. Every employee with an open-ended employment contract can become a co-owner and, in due course, possibly even a partner or senior partner.

You are entitled to at least 28.5 days of leave each year. Witteveen+Bos provides allowances for commuting and relocation/refurbishing expenses, and in certain cases an allowance for entertainment expenses.

We support our employees in their personal development by providing a study scheme. This includes an allowance for the cost of the course and examination fees plus extra leave. Besides external training courses, we organise a wide range of internal courses.
