Having taken on 850 new staff worldwide in 2010, 350 of them in France, in 2011 Bull is continuing its recruitment campaign with a plan to employ a further 1,000 people, of which over 400 will be in France (half of them in the region around Paris, the Ile-de-France). Bull is also intending to take on 90 new staff in Spain, 75 in Morocco and 40 in Latin America, amongst others.
In France, Bull is expecting that, as in 2010, around half the people it recruits will be those with three or more years’ experience, and half will be new graduates/junior staff.
Skills and profiles in demand
The Group is mainly looking for technical experts with specific skills, especially System Architects, Project Managers and Electronic Card Designers in the following areas: High-Performance Computing (HPC), storage/archiving, security/Identity and Access Management (IAM), mission-critical systems, embedded software, Open Source, Business Intelligence, ERP/SAP, Microsoft, migrations and networks.
Bull is now seen as an attractive proposition for employment, having successfully moved into new areas over the past few years such as IT Services and Extreme Computing, and acquired the Amesys Group which specializes in mission-critical systems and embedded software. This is clearly illustrated by the fact that a quarter of new recruits now come via word of mouth or personal networking. The Group also sets great store by its training programs, as 20% of its new hires had already been involved with the company before they joined: in France alone, Bull’s teams include some 150 apprentices and 250 trainees on long-term placements.
Currently, Bull employs 8,600 people worldwide, over half of whom have been with the Group for less than five years.
