Crown Europe will kickstart the New Year with job opportunities for qualified engineers.

Applications have opened for 10 candidates with experience in operations/engineering, supply chain management and sales as part of the company’s FORWARD Initiative.

June 2018 start

The scheme will train qualified engineers for future jobs within the company.

We are thrilled to announce the FORWARD Initiative will return for another program cycle and to begin the process of assessing and identifying Europe’s talent for a chance at becoming a future leader of Crown Europe​,” said Sjoerd-Jaap Schaaf, HRD Recruiting, Succession Planning & Functional Support at Crown Europe.

To ensure candidates are well prepared for these management roles, we’ve designed the program to be immersive in various environments where candidates will learn the skills needed to succeed in jobs before they have to perform them​.

By laying a strong foundation for the future now, our goal is to provide long-term stability for our customers and to maintain the agility we need as a business as we continue to expand our technologies and services​.”

The program exposes participants to assignments that span different countries and disciplines over a 24- to 36-month period.

Assignments abroad

Each selected participant will be given three assignments in at least two countries and will be exposed to at least two operations departments including continuous improvement, quality, manufacturing and engineering.

Throughout the program, a mentor and local “buddies” will help participants adapt to new roles and environments.

After three years as a manufacturing engineer, I realized I wanted to experience a broader set of challenges and different industrial environments. The FORWARD Initiative has given me all of this and more,​” said Vito De Leonardis, a FORWARD Engineer based at Crown’s CMB Engineering facility in Shipley, UK.

It offers an accelerated growth path and development opportunities that no other position would have given me​.”

As of December 2017, Crown Europe employed 11 full-time staff members who are former FORWARD Initiative participants and have been hired as a result of the program and their respective efforts.  

Prospective candidates can apply via the Careers section​ of Crown’s website. Application details will also be promoted via Crown’s LinkedIn page​.

Program applicants will be formally assessed during a meeting in France in April 2018, and selected candidates will begin the program in June 2018.
