Be mobile, gain technical expertise
Air Liquide’s presence in over 80 countries, in addition to its diverse business activities, creates a wealth of exciting career possibilities. Reflecting the importance of diversity, there’s no “standard career path”. Instead, each employee’s trajectory is customized to their individual objectives and the opportunities they seize within the Group. Two major levers are internal mobility and technical expertise.
Internal mobility, whether in terms of shifting job function or geography, is a long-standing talent management practice at Air Liquide. It opens a wide range of possibilities for motivated employees and ensures that everyone benefits from the diversity that each talent brings. It also builds extremely strong and lasting networks within the Group.
This development approach creates unique career paths fitting each individual’s profile.
Here’s a selection of testimonials to illustrate career mobility and life at Air Liquide:
Special care is taken to foster technical expertise over the long term. Expertise makes a crucial difference to being able to anticipate customers’ needs and business objectives through innovative solutions. Our technical population benefits from a program called Technical Community Leaders (or TCL).
In place since 2003, the TCL provides Air Liquide’s high-performing technical talents with a structured yet flexible career path that offers recognition, reward and influence. It means that experts can fully develop in their chosen field.
The Technical Community Leader has 6 main levels: local expert, local senior expert, international expert, international senior expert, fellow and senior fellow. Each level is a progression in terms of responsibilities, recognition and prestige.
“With more than 150 domains of expertise reaching from healthcare to aerospace, Air Liquide provides a vast playing-field for talented people to explore their technical potential.”
