Career development

Career development at IFP Energies nouvelles is the responsibility of managers on the ground.

This approach ensures the necessary flexibility for the coherent and shared construction of a forward-looking and efficient skills-management process. It is also based on the implementation of reinforced policies taking into consideration the individual’s own preferences in terms of career development, analyzed against the available opportunities and the benefit to IFP Energies nouvelles and its industrial partners.


Training is a way of maintaining and developing the technical, scientific, behavioral and managerial skills of staff, with a view to anticipating and constantly adjusting to IFP Energies nouvelles’s requirements. The new law on professional training, which led to the signature of a company-wide agreement in 2006, also introduces the notion of co-responsibility. This allows employees to play an active role in their own employability. Training initiatives are therefore implemented on the basis of IFP Energies nouvelles’s strategic goals, taking into account individual hopes for career development.

Mobility plays a central role in the quest to find the best fit, in the short and medium term, between the requirements of R&D programs and projects and the skills of its employees.
Mobility, sometimes accompanied by training, concerns all staff. It is one of the cornerstones of career development: it is an ideal way of enhancing and developing skills.
There are numerous opportunities for mobility within IFP Energies nouvelles, the Group or its subsidiaries or with its industrial partners.
