Additional Information

Assystem France, the French engineering and project management group, announced that the company is planning to hire 1,500 employees in 2020 in France (and 2,000 in total at worldwide level). The new employees will be managers or engineers in the areas of systems, testing, nuclear safety, cybersecurity, manufacturing and project management in particular on topics related to blockchain, big data and industry 4.0.

Nearly half of the new positions will be available for junior profiles for people with limited or no experience (with up to three years of experience). The company plans to integrate a new promotion of 150 trainees and work-study students and aims to continue its approach in favour of diversity by increasing the number of recruitments of under-represented profiles within the sector. In 2019, Assystem recruited 35% of female profiles in France and aims to steadily increase this figure in the coming years.

A previous business expansion of 1,500 jobs created was announced in 2018. In 2017, the group recruited 2,200 employees and 1,800 in 2016. A previous recruitment of 100 employees was recorded in 2007.
