Japanese shipping giant has urged graduates to apply for the latest edition of its award-winning talent acquisition program, Growww.

The Growww 2019 offers fresh graduates a unique opportunity to kick-start their career in one of the largest corporations in Central Eastern Europe, said a press note from the global transport company.

Through the program MOL aims to develop a new generation of industry experts, offering them an opportunity to learn and solve real-life business challenges while working in one of the most complex industries.

MOL Group opens over 140 positions in the areas of engineering, business, IT as well as social and natural sciences. Candidates with up to one year working experience can apply for positions both at the Headquarters in Budapest and in MOL Group’s local subsidiaries in ten countries: Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Italy, Norway, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia.

This intensive one-year program offers a possibility to gain insight into the operations of MOL Group across all business and functional areas.

On top of the on-the-job learning and visits to various MOL’s industrial sites, young professionals have a possibility to gain industry-specific knowledge through structured business education program, which is also an excellent opportunity to network with company’s top executives and make professional relationships.

Each participant is supported by a mentor who provides professional guidance and feedback as well as helps adapt to a dynamic, multicultural working environment.

“Since the 2007 launch of the Growww program, we are receiving year on year over six thousand applications; we hired over two thousand Growwwers, at the same time maintaining a strong, 80% retention rate. For me personally, this continuous popularity of our flagship talent acquisition program is another proof that MOL is one of the most attractive employers in the CEE region," said Zdravka Demeter Bubalo, HR Vice President at MOL Group.

"As a global company, we give young people the freedom to think big and the capability to bring these ideas to life. Since we embarked on our strategic business transformation, I believe that nurturing this innovative spirit is more important than ever to future-proof our company for the years to come,” Zdravka added.

Over the last decade the Growww program has gained wide international recognition and became a real industry trademark, with the best-in-class retention rate of almost 80%. At the same time, the female representation among those hired reached 40% last year, well above the Oil & Gas industry average.
