“Working at Fives, means taking part in a human adventure”Céline Morcrette
In complex economic and socio-cultural environments, characterized by unprecedented changes - both in speed and scale - Fives relies on the men and women who make the difference due to their experience, skills and expertise.
We are committed to hiring and supporting talents and profiles from all backgrounds, who are recognized as experts in their field and in keeping with Fives’ spirit.
Recruiting and welcoming talents from all backgrounds
With nearly 1,200 new hires in 2018, finding talent has been a major challenge in all the geographic regions where Fives operates.
Notably, the Group has covered natural attrition, both in the US and France; the arrival of new employees has also supported the growth of certain activities.
Common values and soft skills:
the key to success to build the Fives of the future
Fives is keen to welcome and hire talent from all backgrounds, regardless of education, profile of nationality. They all share common values and state of mind: passionate candidates, with the ability to manage projects and work in an organization which prioritizes initiative and autonomy, with a pioneering spirit and an international mindset, working to create the industrial solutions and equipment of the future.
The ability of newcomers to embody the values and spirit of Fives every day will always be a key factor for the future success of the Group.

For two years, this common platform has allowed personalized monitoring of employee data, their aspirations and performance.
It contains various information regarding the employee’s career, such as the annual interview, training requests, remote working, the “CEDRE” annual career management committee monitoring grid, etc. Already deployed in nearly all of the Group’s locations worldwide, Fives&Me will be launched at the Service subsidiaries internationally and in Japan in 2019.
The Group operates in one hundred locations in nearly thirty countries and offers various opportunities.
An asset for individuals looking to tackle new challenges in a large organization sharing jobs, structure and culture.
Fives is pursuing the development of its e-learning platform, Learning@Fives.
Depending on their profile, it offers all Group employees the option to access multi-disciplinary technical and business training (safety, law, finance, reporting, etc.) at their own pace.
Fives endeavors to create optimal working conditions for its employees.
Every three years, the Group launches an internal “Happy@Fives” survey aimed at all employees. The objective: to gather the opinion of every employee to analyze progress made and define improvement plans. Safety (89%), relationships with colleagues (94%) and line managers (86%) as well as interest in work (88%) are some of the results which demonstrate employees’ satisfaction in working at Fives.
Launch of the ‘Plan for Young People’ program in 2019
A program aimed at the next generation will allow employees to help young people from disadvantaged backgrounds and rural areas to
integrate, and to support them as part of their work placements in Grade 9.
Fives employees can visit schools to talk about the company and encourage an interest in industrial jobs. Deployed in France for the first time, this program will be extended overseas in different forms.
Thanks to the ‘Nos Quartiers ont du Talent’ association, I mentor a young person from an immigrant background living in a disadvantaged neighbourhood. I am currently helping him to prepare for different interviews to find a job after his master’s degree. I am delighted to help form this bridge between the world of work and young people.
