Year 1 | At the start, we create a customized guidance and training plan with you. In your first year, you participate in an internal introductory program. In addition to your work at the level of Work Planner, for example, you follow the practical course VOMI Work Planner.

Year 2 | In addition to your regular work at the Junior Executives level, you will engage in one or more specific and valuable professional training courses. That is for example VOMI MIM 2 & 3, or Nace, Scaffolding Inspector or Cini.  As a Trainee, you will also become a member and part of our internal Bilfinger Network. Together with other professionals, you will get the chance to develop personally in it.

Year 3 | In the third phase, you work at the level of Superintendent and probably already follow the VOMI Site Management training. After about 3 to 4 years after starting, you will have built up enough experience and knowledge to function as a full-fledged Project Leader on site.
