The recruitment process at Legrand
In our Group, recruitments are managed locally at the level of business units and countries, which define the strategy most suited to their needs and environment. However, wherever the position you are applying for is located, the recruitment process has three aims, which are shared by all Group entities:
• to ensure that you have the competencies and expertise required for the position, as well as the personal skills and values that will enable you to succeed: commitment, sense of initiative, transparency, ability to work as part of a team and help your colleagues grow, etc.;
• to help you clearly understand the professional environment you are about to join, thanks to various meetings with line managers and HR managers;
• to determine, following an initial position, what your future within the Group could be: what your potential is, what your ambitions are, and which qualities will enable you to achieve them.
