“I’m proud that our Group is enabling close to 4,000 young adults to begin their professional lives.”

Careers for all ambitions

Opportunity. A word whose promises materialize all too rarely after the inspiring speeches. But at Société Générale Group, a vast range of careers, companies, and countries await you. And there’s no need to look since the proof is already there in the form our 4,000 junior employees spread across 39 countries.

“We don’t necessarily recruit you for a specific position, but instead for what you’re going to become and do. In three years, another profession will potentially open up you.”

- Lucile, Data Scientist

Here, we recruit personalities – people who want to learn and push past boundaries. It isn’t what you’ve done that matters, but rather what you want to become.

This field of possibilities is yours, and its scope will surprise you.

A trip around the world or a career: why choose?

Our international teams are in constant need of support all over the globe. Here, we cultivate a culture of mobility, inviting and encouraging each employee to answer the call of the world. Like Flora, for example, who, after an internship, got the chance to go to Hong Kong for her V.I.E. to pursue her career as a Data Scientist.

“I signed my short-term contract 2 months before my internship ended, and now I’m on a permanent contract. I’m really enjoying Hong Kong.”

- Flora, Communications Manager
