Training opportunities Witteveen+Bos
First and foremost, you will develop professionally by learning on the job. You will be challenged to use and build upon your knowledge and skills, because that is how you will learn most and fastest. Additionally, you will learn from experienced colleagues while working on your project. We will encourage your development through a wide range of internal and external training courses.
Within the company we organise all kinds of skill training aimed at strengthening your personal, socio-communicative, managerial or commercial skills. You will take these courses as a member of a group, with the group composed to reflect the composition of our entire organisation. Consequently, you will get to know colleagues who work in other disciplines. This will give you a wider view of our organisation and allow you to expand your network. The content and level of our internal training courses are geared to the phase of your career and to our day-to-day working practice. A personal development plan often forms part of these courses, and for that purpose you will be expected to request feedback from your manager and your immediate colleagues.
Our range of training courses includes:
- project management
- problem-solving negotiation
- presentational skills
- commercial skills
- financial analyses
- legal and contractual aspects of the services we provide
Take control of your future
Besides these internal training courses, we facilitate a variety of different external courses. They are focused far more on specialisation and technology. They are designed to accelerate your development towards the role of expert. We consider it important for you personally to take the initiative to attend training courses. After all, you are responsible for your own career. For young professionals we also offer our Starter programme.
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.
Do you also offer traineeships?
You are the orchestrator of your own career, so we do not mark out any predefined career paths. Therefore, we do not have standard traineeships for new employees.
Right from your very first working day at Witteveen+Bos, you will develop professionally by undertaking varied and challenging work in a variety of different projects. Those projects give you ample opportunity to learn and to discover what kind of work you like and what your talents are.
