MOL Group has opened on Wednesday a call for applications for the next edition of its award-winning talent acquisition program, Growww 2018, which offers fresh graduates an unparalleled opportunity to kick-start their career in one of the largest companies in CEE. Through the program MOL aims to develop a new generation of industry experts, offering them an opportunity to learn and fulfill their potential in a stimulating and collaborative environment.
This initiative refers to almost 180 positions in the area of engineering, business, IT as well as social and natural sciences. Candidates with up to one year working experience can apply for positions both at the Headquarters in Budapest and in MOL Group’s local subsidiaries in 11 countries: Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Italy, Pakistan, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia.
This intensive one-year program offers a possibility to gain insight into the operations of MOL Group across all business and functional areas. On top of the on-the-job learning and visits to various MOL’s industrial sites, young professionals have a possibility to deepen their knowledge through structured business education program, which is also an excellent opportunity to network with company’s top executives and make professional relationships. Each participant is supported by a mentor to provide professional guidance and feedback, as well as help adapt to a dynamic, cross-cultural working environment.
Over the last decade the Growww program has gained wide international recognition and became a real industry trademark. Since its launch in 2007, more than 2,000 talented individuals from all around the world were recruited as part of the program. Upon completion, a major part of participants continued their careers within MOL Group. In 2017, almost 90% of them stayed in the company, while the female representation among those hired reached nearly 50%, well above the O&G industry average.
“2017 was the first year of our business transformation and we recognized that we need employees with fresh, entrepreneurial approach more than ever to make a step change and move ahead with our 2030 strategy. Today young people no longer look for jobs. They look for opportunities to make a real impact and I believe that joining MOL Group as part of Growww gives them an opportunity to think big and bring their ideas to life. I encourage fresh graduates from various academic backgrounds to apply and shape the future of our industry.” – said Zdravka Demeter Bubalo, HR Vice President at MOL Group.
