As a consultant at ALTEN you will find that you will develop your skills quickly. This is partly because of our wide variety of projects and partly because of our continuous attention to your development. To facilitate this we have developed the ‘career diamond’ and offer trainings through our own ALTEN Academy. You can read more about the development opportunities below.
ALTEN has clients in various sectors with different company sizes. This can vary from startups to large international players. This large diversity of projects ensures that you can always continue to develop, whether this concerns the newest techniques or organizational aspects.
One of the unique aspects within ALTEN is our in-house project organization, which executes projects for our customers at one of our offices. Because of our project responsibility, all roles within the project lifecycle are present.This gives you the opportunity to fulfill your ambition under the guidance of ALTEN.
ALTEN is a knowledge company and our consultants are knowledge owners in their expertise. Through the ALTEN Academy and our Knowledge Sharing Sessions (KSS), we share this knowledge not only with our customers, but also with you as a consultant.
Only a few careers follow a straight line. Especially at the beginning of a career there is a need to try out in order to experience which direction you want to go. To facilitate you as a consultant with your career we have developed the career diamond; a model that represents both vertical and horizontal growth. The vertical growth is represented by translating different skills into levels of seniority, for example your technical skills, coaching junior colleagues, making a direct contribution to the success of ALTEN, etc.. Horizontal growth is characterized by expertise ranging from technical depth (through technical direction and project direction) to management.
Supervision within ALTEN is very important. You will have your own Business Manager who will help, guide and coach you. Besides that, your colleagues are also very important, both in terms of content and fun (one of our core values). Read more about the coaching within ALTEN below.
At ALTEN you have your own Business Manager, together with you he/she is responsible for your career. The Business Manager is your first point of contact and you will meet him/her regularly during progress meetings or your annual performance review. A big advantage is that the Business Manager is also responsible for the client for whom you perform on your project. This means he/she can coach you better and knows exactly how things work at the client. The team of consultants for which a Business Manager is responsible is not very large, so you have a lot of personal contact. In this way, together we contribute directly to our core value of Open & Engaged.
Throughout the year, many meetings and events take place with your ALTEN colleagues. These are both for knowledge sharing (matching our core value Sharing) and for fun. For example, our dinner parties at the end of the year, but also our bi-monthly meetings and KSS. Good moments to continue to meet your colleagues and learn from each other.
