The best leaders take active interest in developing leaders, so is said. At Sioen, a market leader in technical textiles, we take this recommendation very seriously. Some of our co-workers are regular guest speakers at trainings, research and business institutes, meetings of sector professionals and specialists such as safety officers, marketeers, customs officers, credit controllers, HR officers, production managers and researchers. Our CEO is a respected captain of industry, vice president of the VBO/FEB and member of the VBO/FEB strategic committee and of the strategic investment committee of Belgium's prime minister.
In search of talent
We are actively in search of young talent to join us and to help realize our ambitious plan of growth. And where to find young potentials in a better way than at the Career fair of Vlerick Business school?
The students attending the fair are Masters and MBA students @ Vlerick Business School, with a focus on international business and entrepreneurship. In the 2018-2019 class, there are participants with a wide range of cultural, academic and professional backgrounds.
With the average age being 23, these students in the Masters programs are ready for their first job. At Sioen we want to give them a stimulating work environment and personal and professional growth opportunities in an international environment. At Sioen they will get to know the world of technical textiles from every possible angle: cross-disciplinary, including all the steps of the value chain from yarn, over fabric to finished garments.
Family values, stock market professionalism
We offer the best of both worlds. Sioen is a stock quoted company with family roots and traditions. We capitalize on the advantages of both. At Sioen, you’ll find longevity in leadership, which results in overall stability within the organization, solid financial stability and a clear long-term vision set on shaping the future of technical textiles.
Our strategy is very straightforward and consists of 5 elements: vertical integration, customer centricity, innovation, market leadership and sustainable growth.
We operate in a spirit of "everything is possible", with a hands-on mentality, ensuring all together the success of the company. You’ll appreciate our clear focus on technicity and innovation, resulting in state-of-the-art production facilities (we’re working on Industry 4.0), in digitalization, in new materials (biodegradable and recyclable), in new products and new markets. We practice open communication, in a direct and clear way, allowing new ideas to be heard, and people to be noticed and recognized. We are committed to providing you an enjoyable, satisfactory working environment without discrimination and with equal opportunities for everyone.
For our headquarters in Belgium, we are currently looking for a Lead buyer, a Business Analyst SAP, a Product developer and a Product manager. Other vacancies in Belgium are Production manager in our plants in Haaltert and in Mouscron, and an R&D engineer in Bornem. For our Tunisian plant we are looking for a Managing Director.
