THINK ABOUT “V.I.E”

A FLEXIBLE AND SIMPLE PROGRAM

 

What is the V.I.E?

Created in September 2001 under the aegis of the Ministry for Foreign Trade to promote French export abroad, the V.I.E program is managed by UBIFRANCE, the French Agency for International Business Development.

 

A FLEXIBLE PROGRAM
The V.I.E program allows French companies to send young European graduates, between the age of 18 and 28, on a working assignment abroad for a period varying between 6 up to 24 months, renewable once, to match your specific needs.

No contractual tie between the Company and the V.I.E, who is under the authority of the Secretary of State in charge of foreign trade and as such, the V.I.E enjoys a public status within a protective framework.

 

A SIMPLIFIED MANAGEMENT
UBIFRANCE handles all the administrative aspects of V.I.E assignment thus you can focus merely on the operational activity and be as hassle-free as possible.
