Roquette collaborates with SKEMA on recruitment
Ingredients provider Roquette has formed a global collaboration with business school SKEMA in an effort to train and recruit future employees.

Roquette is a global player in plant-based ingredients, serving the food, pharmaceutical and cosmetic and personal care segments, and requires highly specialised and trained staff for its workforce.

Meanwhile, which SKEMA Business School has more than 8,000 worldwide and in excess of 40,000 graduates, has agreed with Roquette to deliver a series of actions over the next three years designed to cultivate future talent suitable for Roquette’s requirements.

Mutually beneficial collaboration

The collaboration was signed earlier this month at Roquette’s headquarters in Lestrem, Northern France, by Marc Peeters, director of Roquette’s human resources and François-Xavier Théry, director of SKEMA's corporate office, and includes several areas designed to be mutually beneficial.

Primarily, Roquette wants to cultivate closer association with future talents, students and graduates of SKEMA by offering internships, work-study contracts, VIE contracts at the company’s global locations.

The group particularly wants to cultivate greater co-operations at SKEMA campuses in China, the USA and Brazil, where specific collaboration projects will be developed to include student visits and participation in the school’s recruitment programmes.

Tailor made training

As part of the agreement, SKEMA has agreed to develop training programmes that are specifically geared up to the requirements of the group.

These programmes will include SKEMA's postgraduate and diploma courses and will be adapted through dialogue between the school’s teaching staff and Roquette decision makers.

Roquette will also participate in SKEMA’s ‘Vis ma vie’ project, which is designed to invite female business leaders to share a working day with a student, which was developed as part of SKEMA’s Women and Business Chair.
