VIE scheme goes from strength to strength in the UK

Amal Froidevaux - 12/12/12

Almost 700 VIE graduates are working in the UK for a total of 210 companies in order to gain experience and contribute to the success of French-based businesses in Britain. 

This successful government scheme enables employers to test future key managers in situ, find talents for given projects, source bilingual or trilingual professionals for companies and other organisations, and tackle localized labour shortages.

▪76% of VIE graduates are aged between 25 and 28, with a professional experience of their own before joining the scheme

▪60% of former VIE graduates, on average, are offered a permanent position after their VIE contract
