Human Resources, One of Provence's Greatest Strengths

Creating or running a business in Provence means benefiting from an enormous talent pool, a world-class educational and training system, and a magnificently diverse culture that welcomes contributors from around the world. Depending on your project, you will find two international-quality labor pools already on site: a massive network of engineers and a young, educated multicultural workforce with expertise in industrial projects, tech companies, logistics, business, and tourism.

Provence is the land of engineering, with a vibrant ecosystem of companies in such key sectors as microelectronics, biotechnology, energy, and aeronautics, as well as major R&D centers associated with the companies and organizations such as Airbus Helicopters, STMicroelectronics, Gemalto, ITER, Innate Pharma, or EDF.

With 12 engineering schools (ENSAM, Ecoles des Mines, Epitech, etc…) and 75 000 students at Aix-Marseille University, your business will be able to recruit from among a veritable hotbed of engineers and elite students. These recent graduates include student researchers in every domain; in 2015 there were 3400 doctoral students in the Aix-Marseille-Provence area!

It’s also vital to note that there are more than 700 foreign companies operating in Provence, many of them linked to the major international nuclear fusion project at ITER, which has attracted researchers from Japan, the United States, India, China, and Europe. This wealth of foreign, multilingual experts is perfectly at home in a metropolis that is renowned for its cultural diversity and openness.

Provence Promotion works closely with Aix-Marseille University and top graduate schools as well as the human resources experts at PACA Mode d’Emploi, a specialized recruiting arm of the regionwide economic development agency ARII PACA.  We also have access to France’s only HR network dedicated to engineering, which is managed in partnership with organizations such as the Pôle Emploi national employment agency, the education departments for Nice and Aix-Marseille, the national professional training organization AFPA, the national immigration bureau OFII, and others.

 

Decision makers, business leaders, and entrepreneurs, why not become one of Provence’s success stories, just like Sud Cosmetics, which grew from 20 to 130 people in just two years, or ADF, which recruited more than 50 new collaborators for its new high-value industrial works operation, or Sartorius France, which now employs 800 people in Aubagne.
