Altran Launches a TV Show for International Recruitment


PARIS--March 19, 2013:

At 1 pm (CET) on 28th March, the Altran group will broadcast on the web the first live corporate programme dedicated to recruitment and engineers' career opportunities. In order to reach its recruitment objective of more than 4,000 engineers this year in the world, Altran invests resources: inauguration of its own TV studios, professional production team, broadcasting simultaneously on-line and via Facebook. The TV show "Career" will be live and interactive: participants could question a panel of Altran experts on the ins and outs of what it is to be a consultant, and the career opportunities proposed by the global leader in innovation.

A strategic objective

This premiere edition of "Career", first international live talk show, signs the launch of a communication campaign dedicated to recruitment. International careers remain one of the most attractive aspects of being a consultant.

In 2013, Altran will recruit nearly 2,200 engineers in France and more than 4,000 worldwide, to collaborate to increasingly international and complex projects. Recruitment is an integral part of Altran's strategy since the excellence of the Group's client support hinges on the quality of its engineers.

"Hosting a live conference dedicated to recruitment using audiovisual and digital support systems and social networks is indeed a challenge. We have chosen this format since we firmly believe that nothing can replace the advantages that transparency and live communication can offer to a demanding , young and passionate public. The presentation of various career experiences and the information shared during these programmes will enhance the appeal for a profession that has changed in many ways. Consulting companies in fact offer the three key priorities that young engineers seek today: international opportunities , varied projects and ambitious missions , " declared Julien Esposito, Group Employer Brand Director of Altran.

News and passion oriented programme

The "Career" programme will present the most innovative projects and the latest Group's news:

  • Altran World News: News of the Group's Innovation Makers (the "Solar Impulse" flight across the USA, launch of the Intelligent Systems premium solution, etc.)
  • Ask The Boss: live interview of Altran's Chairman and Chief Executive, Philippe Salle.
  • The Talk: round table about international careers, with HR managers and Group consultants.
  • Socialise: advice and best practices to manage professional e-reputation issues.

Every step of this programme will offer internet users the possibility to participate.
