  • Various training possibilities of Calco;
  • Personal guidance in your development by your own field manager (coach);

Over de functie

In about 2 years' time, you get the chance to learn about and grow in the field of IT. The first 2 months of your Calco traineeship journey starts with getting trained in our internal training centre in Amsterdam. During the first 2 weeks, we'll teach you the most important IT basics. Next to these hard skills, you will also be coached in the further development of your soft skills at Calco. Like public speaking, effective communication and group dynamics. The second phase of the educational program is all about our so-called Deep Dives. Based on your qualities, skills, and wishes, a specialisation course will be assigned to you related to subjects you have experienced during the crash course.
Jouw taken
After two months, you have filled your backpack with a variety of IT skills and tools necessary to succeed in the business. We value making the right match between you and our partners. This match is predominantly based on who you are as a person instead of what your resume says. We believe that a sense of belonging and shared values is more important than a relationship solely based on academic knowledge. You start your secondment period with the client. During this period, that will take about two years, you will be able to continue to develop yourself on-the-job. Calco will connect you with a field manager who will coach you and offer help whenever necessary. Additionally, Calco will also provide unlimited courses so your development will not stop here. After about 2 years, almost 90% of Calco trainees makes the switch to the client. However, this remains your own choice!
Jouw achtergrond

  • You have a Bachelor's or a Master's degree. Your study background doesn't matter

  • A challenging application process, but this won’t stop you;
  • Hard work and busy periods, but you can keep your head cool;
