Sofie, Consultant of our Life Sciences division, is sharing her knowledge by providing trainings. She speaks about how ALTEN considers skills development important
“As a recent graduate, I didn’t know exactly what type of jobs were on the market. What I did know is that I wanted a varied and challenging job, in which I could create a picture of the various positions and clients. Working as a consultant is ideal for this. ALTEN felt very good from the start, there was trust and I felt at ease. Everyone was super friendly and you immediately noticed that there is an open, loose atmosphere in the company. During the conversations there was also a project proposal ready, ALTEN knows how to go about it! The projects are also of a longer duration (at least one year), this gives you the time to get to know the client, but also to have sufficient depth in a certain position.
ALTEN is also flexible, especially when it comes to training. Everyone wants to develop continuously and follow training courses is a must. The ALTEN Academy is always ready to include new training courses in their offer, or give you the opportunity to follow these courses externally. I also get the chance to teach others by giving training courses at the ALTEN Academy to new colleagues. This ensures that I can develop from both sides.
Offer trainings is also part of my current project at a leading pharma company who innovates and produces medicines. I am implementing a new Change Control system because of the split between two divisions. Getting to know the program, finding out the different possibilities and transferring that knowledge to the employees was the main task during my project. Now I mainly provide hypercare to the employees and see where the process can be further optimized.
In short, I am very satisfied with my current position and that of ALTEN.”
