Sigma Young Talent starts another Talent Program. This time in engineering.

Once again, Sigma Young Talent is delivering a talent program that meets Ascom’s need for engineers of the future.

Ascom is a communication solutions provider focused on mobile workflow with the vision to close digital information gaps, allowing for the best possible decisions – anytime, anywhere.

As a provider at the forefront of technical innovation, their need for skilled employees is paramount, both in the short and long-term. In order to attract the best employees, an introductory capability development program has started together with Sigma Young Talent in Gothenburg. The program aims to deliver growth and future-proof specialist competencies in R&D and Engineering for Ascom.

– We are in a phase of growing and we can offer exciting opportunities working with the latest technologies. For us, this talent program is a new way of recruiting, where we see the advantages of using a partner who has already established contact channels with the students, says Patrik Hartvig, VP Global Product Line Mobility at Ascom.

Participants in the talent program will be given training and coaching in parallel with their regular work. It offers a unique chance to get a good start to their career. The areas of expertise on which the program focuses are mechanical product engineers, quality engineers and developers within R&D.

The program will launch in Q1-2019 and recruitment has already begun.

– It's great working together with Ascom to develop a talent program for newly graduated engineers. The program gives candidates a flying start to their career. Participants are given a chance of development in an optimal way by combining practice and theory. A talent program is a great way to attract top-employees, says Pernilla Johansson, Executive Vice President Sigma Young Talent.
