From trainee to sought-after IT employee



I wouldn’t want to miss my time as a trainee - it allowed me to get off give my career a jump start "


Getting a kick-start on his career and making a significant contribution to the success of the company – this is what the “Next Level” trainee program at Bilfinger made possible for Daniel Casares.

As part of his trainee program (2019-2021), our colleague spent two years rotating through various departments at Bilfinger Global IT and working on a wide variety of projects: “I rotated through to a new work area every three to four months. From the very beginning, I was involved in complex areas such as the initial introduction of MS Teams, the development of individual special software and the Cloud Centre of Excellence, which is responsible for the operation and further development of the cloud infrastructure”, explains our colleague.

In this context, the Rotterdam project really stands out in his memory: “My mentor asked me if I would like to do my international placement in the Netherlands. I agreed and a few days later, I left for Rotterdam. Full of anticipation and enthusiasm, I joined a mail migration project that my local colleagues and the Global IT colleagues had been working on for a long time. The project turned out to be more complex than expected, but after a few tricky weeks we were able to develop a new approach and bring the project to a speedy conclusion. In Rotterdam, I particularly enjoyed the team spirit and I am also very proud to have contributed to the international IT being able to work better together with Global IT”, says our colleague.

For Daniel Casares, personal development, getting better every day and working on a wide variety of projects are all decisive factors that make him feel he has found his place at Bilfinger. “I worked on a variety of tasks and with colleagues all over the world, especially during my traineeship. If you are interested in complex IT and technical topics, you should definitely take advantage of the opportunity and apply. At Bilfinger, in particular, you learn far more than just the technical side of things thanks to the international nature of the company. I wouldn’t want to miss my time as a trainee - it allowed me to get off give my career a jump start”, says Daniel Casares.

Now that he has completed his time as a trainee, he is working at Bilfinger Global IT as a specialist for FinOps and licensing in a cross-functional team. In this role, he reviews the use of the cost-optimized cloud and provides advice and support to Bilfinger and the operating units on issues relating to licensing and the use of the cloud system.
