A powerful combination of targeted learning and working on challenging technical projects. With a permanent contract right from day one, including decent pay and attractive conditions.

About the Talent Development Programme Technology

The Talent Development Programme Technology will entail you working as a (junior) engineer at a company in our network. Alongside this work, you will also follow training geared towards specialisation and professionalisation, ensuring you grow to become an expert engineer, a good colleague and someone with whom people enjoy working. 


You will get to choose from a wide array of companies in YER’s extensive network, all of whom share a deep-seated passion for engineering. Based on your profile and ambitions, we will jointly select the organisation that will be the best match for you. There, you will then work as a (junior) engineer, initially under supervision, but over the course of your traineeship you will gradually be given a greater degree of independence whilst working on challenging technical projects and assignments.


You will be given a training budget of €6,000, or €3,000 a year. In consultation between you, YER and the company at which you will be working, you will use this budget to select specialist/in-depth training pathways, all geared towards turning you into an expert over the two-year programme.
