The Växtkraft programme
Receive an intensive two-week introductory course during which you are given the opportunity to test a real design case and the chance to ask all the “stupid” questions and not “just” be thrown into an assignment with expectations from the customer to immediately perform at a level equivalent to an experienced engineer.
Start your career as an important part of a larger team of recent graduates with a B.Sc. or M.Sc. in Engineering, all of whom start at the same time and thus form a good sense of fellowship and community, which is a big plus and a great source of security.
Växtkraft – the ideal start to your career
Since 2014, Sigma Industry South has been running and developing the Växtkraft programme for newly graduated engineers. We have employed and developed more than 200 young engineers with a B.Sc. or M.Sc. in Engineering directly after graduation, thus providing them with a head start in the labour market. All programme participants are employed with a collective agreement and fair working conditions, which is a given for us here at Sigma.
The following is a quote from one of our employees, who joined our Växtkraft programme immediately after graduating from university and is now reflecting on the first five years of their career with Sigma:
"Since I started at Sigma, I have always felt a strong level of support from my manager, who works hard to make me feel comfortable in my assignments. The advantage of being a consultant is that you can try out many different things. When I feel that it’s time to take on a new challenge, my manager is one step ahead and is able to present options ideally suited to my skills and knowledge and the journey I want to undertake. The dialogue between employees and managers is open in nature, and your opinions and wishes are greatly respected.
Sigma is a fair and transparent employer, with very good salary levels and other terms of employment. For me as an employee, this provides me with a sense of security and provides clarity in terms of what I am worth, both to the client and to Sigma.
The team at Sigma don’t make things more difficult than they actually are. If I need a specific tool for my work, it’s easy to acquire it. I’m not locked into using a particular computer mouse, phone or even office chair. I can choose what suits me best."
In collaboration with our customers
By offering our customers a high and assured level of quality when it comes to our employees, combined with the provision of comprehensive knowledge support and guidance during the first years of their career, we achieve a good collaboration that benefits all parties.
