Career Space of Groupe SEB

Fabrice Martin

At Groupe SEB's, innovation is the first of the 4 cardinal virtues and PhDs are welcome.

One announcement had caught our attention while reading monster.fr job board newsletter: "Groupe SEB is looking for 20 engineers! You are a beginner or experienced qualified candidate (PhD welcome), you are a generalist or a specialist in one of the following fields: Mechanics / Energy, Electronic / Electrical engineering, Chemistry / Metallurgy / Materials. English compulsory…"

"PhD welcome", in France this precision is so unusual that we decided to go a little bit further in our investigations!

World leader of small domestic equipment, Groupe SEB employs 15,000 people, generates a 2.5 billion euros turnover and sells its product in 120 countries. Its online "Professional and career space" is as simple and efficient as a pressure cooker. Let's note that it defines the Groupe SEB style by putting innovation on top of its 4 cornerstones. HR policy is also explained and you will find, at the beginning of the Company Diversity Charter the following sentence: "Supporting pluralism and striving for diversity in the areas of recruitment and career development is an indicator of progress for the company." Eventually, the Career Areas section is illustrated with a lot of very instructive testimonials of staff members.

When we last used the job search engine, 43 offers were published of which 14 concerned R&D. Only one job description included the word "docteur" ("PhD", job ads are in French only) but, after all, in a company emphasizing innovation and diversity, PhDs should own several assets to obtain jobs titled "R&D Lab engineer specialized in energetic systems" or "Research project manager - specialty Electronics".
