This apprenticeship will start in September 2017 (date subject to some flexibility) and is for a duration of 1 or 2 years.
As a member of the team in charge of people development in the configuration management (CM) community, a cross-functional activity ensures the compliance of delivered products towards authorities. You will take part in the implementation and update of the CM Strategic Workforce Plan (SWP).

Your main tasks and responsibilities will include:

  • Defining the CM SWP (version 2), deploying and following up development actions of the community, updating the SWP depending on the revision of the company's strategy.
