Kerakoll invests in young people

13 may 2013

To strengthen its presence on foreign markets - currently Kerakoll has an export share of 40% out of a total turnover of 340 million Euro, and is present in the form of subsidiaries in 12 different Countries - the company has started a three-year employment scheme for 30 young talents with high growth potential who want to start a successful career at international level.

The ideal candidate, aged maximum 26, has a degree in business and economics and business administration, an excellent knowledge of English and preferably of a second language (French, German, Arabic or Russian) and a marked attitude for trade, together with excellent communication and relationship skills.

The selection process is divided into several phases:
•screening of the IT system to assess requirements;
•individual and group interviews to assess the attitudinal and motivational characteristics;
•interview with Kerakoll’s CEO.

The chosen candidates will be offered national and international training programs lasting 5 years, aimed at acquiring specific knowledge of the products, the market, organisation and management of sales networks, marketing strategies, so that at the end of the period they have the skills required to manage a subsidiary company abroad or open new branches.

“Our priority today is the internationalisation process - states Gian Luca Sghedoni, CEO of Kerakoll Spa -, and for this reason we are looking for young talents capable of becoming international managers, who we will be sending out to manage new markets for expansion such as South America, South East Asia and certain Eastern countries. We are not asking for previous experience, because we want to educate the people who are to be our future managers internally. Once they have been hired we will invest in them, by means of a specific, co-ordinated multi-year training plan that will give them all the skills they need to carry out the role of manager of one of our businesses abroad.  The plan started last year and has already resulted in 10 candidates joining the company. Over the past few weeks the second phase started. We are collecting CVs and will then go ahead with interviews, which I carry out in person. This is because I am convinced that the success of a company depends on the men and women that make it up: for this reason I have always dealt in person with the selection of candidates, in 20 years of activity I have held over 1,700 interviews”.
