International Graduate Program - Management/Operations at Broadview Holding BV

Posted 2 days ago

INTERNATIONAL GRADUATE PROGRAMME – BROADVIEW HOLDING – MANUFACTURING TRACKOpportunity for master’s graduates (chemical, mechanical, industrial and process engineering, physics and related subjects) to become part of our group. Ensuring continuous improvement in operations requires a thorough understanding of manufacturing processes, organisational skills and analytical horsepower to manage strategic projects.Uniting resin and fiber to manufacture functional and aesthetically attractive surfaces is not as easy as it sounds. It starts with continuous processes, such as the impregnation of kraft paper and ends with the manufacturing of batches (the number of different products that one factory makes is dazzling). At one point in the process precision in recipes, temperature and pressure could be what makes the difference; at another, it might be all about effective planning. Trainees can make an important impact by bringing the valuable experience of our factory staff together with a keen eye for sensible improvement opportunities. This could be from an engineering perspective but just as well from a safety or planning point of view.Young talents play an important role and are appreciated for analytically challenging our current way of working.The International Graduate ProgrammeThe International Graduate Programme is our way of investing in young talents right out of university, while developing future leaders for the companies in our business portfolio.Over a period of 18 months, you will work on two or three challenging projects.
