Your story of growth

Global Graduate Program

Global Graduate Program

At Ontex we have been growing very fast during the last few years. The thing is, we need the right people on board, growing at our current pace. We need young daredevils who are looking into the future with their eyes wide open. They need to share the same passion and care for our products, they shouldn’t consider teamwork to be just another buzzword and they will need to actively want to help build our organization.

Can you picture where you will be in 18 months? Imagine we teach you the expertise and give you the experience to work in our production lines. Imagine we let you take part in key decisions at our headquarters which could impact our worldwide organization. Imagine we are offering you the unique chance to work in one of our Ontex locations around the world.

Well… that is our Global Graduate Program: an exclusive course we offer 4 youngsters with ambition, good fellowship and plain common sense. You will be continuously coached and challenged as we are digging for your potential, because one thing is certain: this will be your story of growth.
