- HQ Business Development
- 05/02/2018 – 18/05/2019
During my third year of my Bachelor degree in Trade, I had the opportunity to do my internship at BESIX within the Business Development department. During 4 months, I analyzed various markets (United Kingdom, Cambodia, Singapore, Africa) in order to study the potential of BESIX.
A week after my arrival, the team asked me to study and present the Cambodian market in 3 days to a Manager. This experience taught me how to be effective and efficient in the synthesis of my work. Thanks to the result of this study, I became quickly responsible for other tasks, I felt the confidence of my colleagues and I took many initiatives. A few months later, I came back to BESIX to do my dissertation.
Through this experience, I put into practice concepts studied in the courses, I learned to be proactive and respond to the multiple requests of different Managers. A truly enriching experience !
- HQ HR Payroll + HR BP/BPA
- 29/01/2018 – 09/03/2018 + 21/01/2019 – 10/05/2019
During my studies, I had the opportunity to do 2 internships at BESIX. In 2018, I joined the International Payroll team for 6 weeks. The experience was so rewarding that I applied for a second internship in 2019. For this second internship in connection with my dissertation, I joined the Traning and Business Partners team.
Given the reputation and the international status of BESIX, I was very excited about working for BESIX. During my internships, I learned about administrative management of Belgian and international workers and employees. So I had the opportunity to put into practice what I had learned academically, to deepen my knowledge and discover Human Resources.
I had the chance and the privilege to work in a dynamic team, very attentive and they provided me help and support at all times. An internship at BESIX is a training experience both at the technical level and at the level of human relations in the workplace.
- On-site UAE / Qatar
- 07/2018 – 09/2018
Intense. Challenging. Enlightening. Unforgettable. These are the best words to describe the unique internship that I experienced within the facade division of Six Construct (the Middle-East subsidiary of BESIX) during the summer of 2018. The project in itself was outstanding: a stadium designed by Zaha Hadid for the 2022 football World Cup in Qatar.
An engineer from BESIX once told me: “this 3-month internship will give you experience and memories as if it has lasted for 6 months”. Indeed, the time-constraints and climatic conditions offered the chance to be involved in a highly intense project. Thus, I was given the opportunity to deal with a very large range of missions (design, calculation, inspection, etc.). The more responsibilities I took on, the more I learnt about the complexity and the stakes of the project.
As a Technical Office engineer, I was used to working closely with many professionals within the built environment: design office, site office, joint-venture, subcontractors, etc. I also had the opportunity to discover new fields: different manufacturing processes at the in-house workshop, the welfare policies and some financial background.
I highly recommend an internship with BESIX to anyone who is looking for a great way to gain experience on outstanding projects while evolving within teams that strive for a collective success.
