Graduate program

Do you see cables or do you see opportunities?

“Build the Future” is our exciting international graduate program. Every year, we select a small number of talented graduates from all over the world and give them the chance to develop the skills and expertise they need to succeed at The Prysmian Group.
In the last four years, we’ve taken on 172 new graduates. If you’re chosen to join the program, you’ll have the chance to work on projects that touch every part of the business, making a valuable contribution, right from the start. And once you’ve got to grips with the local market, we’ll send you overseas on an international assignment, which could take you anywhere.
Just imagine the possibilities.

If you're looking for a career with the potential to make a global impact,
then look no further.
