Diversified, numerous and borderless career paths
There is no set career path to trace. Completely the opposite, in fact. There are as many different career paths as there are individuals in our team. Depending on your skills, experience and professional aspirations, it is up to you to define the path your career will take throughout your professional life – and you’ll have the freedom to do so at your own pace.
We share in your vision by promoting training, sharing skills and encouraging internal mobility.

Join VWT and you’ll gain access to this exclusive network of highly skilled water treatment professionals.
As much as possible, we encourage and develop professional mobility in all its forms: functional mobility, transversal, geographical, etc. For us, everything is possible. Request a transfer and go to work and live in a new country or city. Or rise through the ranks within our headquarters and various operational entities. Change your specialisation. Use our resources to find your place in a totally new department.
As the main driver of your career and mobility, you’ll benefit from the support of our dedicated teams who can advise and support you in defining and implementing your projects.
Training throughout your working life
We run many training programs throughout the year, focusing on technical know-how as well as interpersonal skills.

In line with the evolution of our organisation and context of our operations, we create, adjust and remodel our internal training offering to match market needs.
