Draw your own path
Ask your future colleagues: People who join Solvay are usually in for the long haul. That’s partly because we invest massively in career development through continuous training, leadership programs and even a dedicated graduate program.
We do this because we know that what works for you now won’t necessarily work anymore as your personal life, interests, skills and aspirations evolve. We want to help you explore new grounds, set you on that new career path you’ve been contemplating, or even awaken the leader inside of you.

“The FFF program is a unique opportunity to get exposure and expand our skills”
Solvay’s commitment to empowering the next generations of innovators is best reflected in Foundations for the Future (FFF). Through this graduate program, we’ve been helping young chemical and mechanical engineers broaden their horizons and widen their skill sets since 1998. Arber, a Project Leader and engineer working on Solvay’s energy transition and water saving projects, is one of them.
“In one of my FFF rotations, I acted as a Sales and Operations Planning Analyst (S&OP Acting Manager) for our Winder and Willow Island sites. We developed benchmarks and reporting tools to ensure an optimal flow of raw materials and finished products without negatively impacting operations.”
All in all, the project helped supply chain and commercial teams improve the service and bring value while spending less cash. Arber, on the other hand, got to better understand site operations, product portfolio and key customer expectations. ”The FFF program is a great opportunity for newly graduated engineers to take on new challenges and important responsibilities. It helps develop an impressive resume and, eventually, become a leader in various technical and commercial roles,” he explains.
