The objective of Aker Solutions International Talent Program is to supply and develop talents that will help expand our capabilities to win and execute new business in growth markets.
Being part of a team, our talents learn the key processes, procedures and tools to be able to contribute in areas such as:
- Project execution
- Business operations
- Business and project control
- Business development
- Contract management
- Supply chain management
Each talent will have a personal mentor, attend workshops with the rest of the team and get close individual follow up throughout the program.
Our international talent program is an intensive two-year on-the-job learning experience. The program is tailored to fit your background, capabilities and personal preferences. It consists of three international assignments covering different businesses and regions in Aker Solutions’ global organisation.
The program focus is to expose young professionals to various assignments to broaden their experiences and provide guidance through their first professional steps in Aker Solutions. Upon successful completion of the program, young talents are encouraged to further develop their skills for a fulfilling and long-term career in Aker Solutions.
The International Talent Program lasts two years and offers three eight-month assignments in Aker Solutions’ businesses worldwide. Through the assignments, you will acquire insight into key business drivers, profit, loss and commercial thinking. Assignments will be "real jobs" that will challenge you and allow you to make a real contribution to the business.
In addition to the assignments, Aker Solutions International Talent Program will provide the following tools:
Workshops: Regular, intensive workshops bring the program’s talents together, building up their personal networks, sharing experience and delivering relevant training from key Aker Solutions personnel and other carefully selected resources.
Mentoring concept: The mentoring concept is integral to the success of the International Talent Program. A personal mentor with extensive experience and coaching abilities will provide a talent with continuity through the durations of the program. The mentor will act as a resource for exploring current issues and areas for personal development; help to see the bigger picture, help you outline your opportunities, support you with an extensive network of colleagues and clients and ease the transition into Aker Solutions' organisational culture.
Individual follow up: Personal development plans based on the talent's previous experience and future career goals, will be monitored with follow-up dialogues and individual evaluations.
