START@ME

The attraction and retention of young people with high potential, with leadership spirit and ambition to embrace new challenges are determinant to prepare the future of the Mota-Engil Group. With the purpose of meeting a sustainable growth, Mota-Engil launched in 2009 the Start@ME: Corporate Trainee Program.

The contact with different businesses, the learning of innovative methodologies, the networking with key-people, as well as development of competencies in international context will be part of these young talents’ training and growing process. In order to embrace this challenge, the Mota-Engil Group seeks to attract undergraduates or newly graduates mainly in the fields of Engineering.

The Program has the duration of one year and already counts with seven editions. In October 2018 the Mota-Engil Group integrated more than 100 trainees in all geographical areas where we are present: Africa, Latin America and Europe.

Stay tuned for the next edition in 2019!

My experience in the scope of the Start@ME program in Ireland was very rewarding. Working in a foreign country gave me the opportunity to meet other people. A different culture in a work environment of great cooperation and support. On the one hand, I’m motivated to learn and cooperate with my team and, on the other hand, to face the challenges arising and meet the responsibilities awarded. Whatever is my contribution in the various projects in which I participate, I know it is part of a whole, which also commits me with the results.

We can only prove our professional and personal value when confronted with situations that put us outside our comfort zone. And there is no greater challenge than to contribute to the construction of Africa’s pearl, Uganda, working and living in the midst of Kampala’s organized chaos. Start@ME has challenged me to live in one of the largest and most vibrant Africa cities, Kampala, and to work in a highly complex project such as the Kampala Northern Bypass. Living on a daily basis with a different culture and life style helped me discover my potential as person and engineer: to help building new opportunities.

The experience and support that Mota-Engil gives us is a great opportunity for young people, thus being able to grow in the labor and professional scope, creating new opportunities and expectations of a new vision of the productive life. To be part of the Star@ME program here in Mexico is a very pleasant experience, the great support from my tutors by giving me responsibilities and guiding me in an effective way, the friendly environment between my work colleagues. On the other hand, when I see the company concerned with each one of its employees, with the environment, with making a good job in the roadwork where I find myself currently, it shows me a side of the labor area that I didn’t know and that helps me giving the best of me in order to continue exceeding myself. Thank you for the great opportunity.

Angola is a country with great potential, but there is still a lot to be done. I was overwhelmed when I was accepted as trainee in Mota-Engil Angola, because it did a lot for the country and is still doing. Things around here happen at a high professional level. We work with the best!   There are opportunities for us and despite being trainees we contribute significantly and receive a great deal in return. It’s simply wonderful.
