Boulogne Billancourt, France - On Saturday, June 10, 2017, more than 100 Groupe Renault employees from all professional categories, business lines, ages and origins will share their passion and expertise with young people to facilitate their first career-related choices.
For the past three years, Renault has been a partner of the Challenge du Monde des Grandes Écoles et Universités, a must-attend event for students and young graduates as well as for companies and institutions of higher education.
Based on a one-day format, the Challenge combines a sporting competition, a careers fair featuring leading companies and awareness workshops on disabilities, all in a festive setting that fosters informal discussion.
Tristan Lormeau, Head of Human Resources, Renault, France: commented: “The Challenge – a major event for youths from grandes écoles and universities, some of whom have disabilities – fits perfectly with our policy on talent diversity. The sporting competition also reflects our values such as team spirit and surpassing oneself, which are also necessary when it comes to designing the car of tomorrow. In 2017, Renault is recruiting 1,800 people on permanent contracts and 1,000 student-apprentices. On June 10, we hope to meet creative, combative minds who are willing to surpass themselves with every test, who want to meet the challenge of building tomorrow’s cars and join our Group.”
