Why not take up a V.I.E?

Have you just finished your studies and would like to travel and gain professional experience at the same time? It can be done! Consider a V.I.E. program, an ideal way to combine the two.


What is Volontariat International en Entreprise?

International corporate volunteering is an opportunity for young people aged 18 to 28 to go abroad on a professional assignment.

French companies based abroad offer these young people the chance to work for them on an internationalization or export project for a period of between 6 and 24 months. The positions, missions and sectors on offer can be very different, depending on the company’s needs.
Europe, Asia and America are the most popular destinations, but not everyone can go, and competition for places is fierce.

Who is the V.I.E. for?

To become a volunteer, you must meet the following conditions:

  • Be a national of a member country of the European Economic Area,
  • Be between 18 and 28 years old (you can leave until the day before your 29th birthday),
  • Be a student or graduate looking for a job,
  • Have a clean criminal record,
  • Never done a VIE before

The benefits of V.I.E

The first advantage for the young volunteer (and not the least) is the opportunity to go abroad! Indeed, living abroad is often very enriching, allowing you to discover a new culture, perfect a foreign language and expand your network by meeting new people. It’s a great way to become more open-minded and adaptable!
In addition to travel, the idea for the young graduate is obviously to gain professional experience, a real opportunity to find a first job. The VIE is also a way of attracting recruiters when you return to France, and can be a springboard to an international career.

VIE offers are available at www.civiweb.com, so don’t delay! Don’t hesitate to contact our Mondassur specialist advisors for more information on theinsurance you need to take out when you’re an International Business Volunteer.
