Competence, creativity, team spirit and ability to overcome challenges are the attributes that Efacec will seek to assess near university graduates during the 2019 edition of “Pitch Bootcamp” initiative. Efacec is one of this initiative, led by Spark, which brings together companies, universities and young talent. The beginning of “Pitch Bootcamp 2019” is scheduled for March 2nd at Instituto Superior Técnico, in Lisbon.

As Corporate Friend of this career accelerator program, Efacec will be represented by a group of two to three employees in each of the 20 editions that will occur throughout this year. Efacec will participate in two different moments of “Pitch Bootcamp” program, called Pitch and Pitch Carousel. In the first moment, the students will make a presentation to a jury composed by employees of several companies, who will share their feedback and support the students. Then, one employee will make a pitch for a group of students, sharing his view of the company’s value proposition.

During the first semester of 2019, the “Pitch Bootcamp” will visit several universities: ISEP, NOVA SBE, FCT NOVA, ISEG, U.Minho, ISEC, NOVA IMS and IP Leiria. It will be an opportunity to the development of future talent through the transmission of knowledge and share of experiences between companies and universities.

Through this initiative, Efacec will have the opportunity to interact with groups of young people that are preparing to start their professional career. Efacec’s decision to support “Pitch Bootcamp” is aligned with its transformational project that Efacec has been undertaking over the last few years that places people and talent at the center of company’s current and future development strategy.

According to Sandra Pombo, Efacec’s Global Brand and Communications Director, “Efacec’s support this kind of initiatives reinforces the company’s development strategy for the next decade, with a special focus on talent and careers, the renewal of Efacec’s DNA and the promotion of gender equality, in particular by stimulating the so-called empowering women in tech”.

Connecting universities and research centers is a differentiating factor for Efacec as a leading company in technology and innovation. Efacec has a relationship with Porto Business School, an exclusive partner of the Mast3r Academia Efacec Management School; INESC TEC, partner for scientific research, technological development and technology transfer activities, a relationship that has recently been extended for another 25 years; and FEUP, which has Efacec’s support in the financing of PhD and research programs.

Throughout 2018 Efacec reinforced its people and talent strategy with initiatives aimed to strength the teams with new knowledge, new skills and new talent for the future. It stands out the launching of the recruitment program “700 Recruta +”, the relaunching of Efacec’s training school “Mast3r Academia Efacec” and the development of “Tech Trainees” program, aimed to recruit new Engineering graduates.

With a comprehensive presence in the value chain of Energy, Mobility and Environment, Efacec acts as a solution provider, EPC contractor (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) and O&M service partner. Efacec is present in strategic markets such as Europe, the United States of America, Latin America, Asia, Middle East, Maghreb and Southern Africa.
