We are a global firm with offices in Frankfurt Geneva, Hong Kong, London, Luxembourg, Manila, Paris, Singapore, Sydney, Warsaw and Zurich. For our Offices in Paris, Luxembourg and Frankfurt we are looking for Junior IT Consultants and Junior Business Analysts.

Moovijob: What is your seduction weapon with a candidate?
N.H.:Our Graduate Program offers invaluable on-the-job development/trainings and will expose you to all the stages of the Project Life Cycle. Our consultants most value: referrals to international projects, the unlimited possibilities for development opportunities through working on the implementation of central systems in major banks and the corporate culture in Orbium.
Moovijob: A detail on a CV that you hate?
N.H.: #1 Spelling & grammar. Even in roles where writing is not necessarily a key skill, poor writing shows a lack of care which no manager will want in their team.
#2 Writing lots, but saying nothing. Why use twenty words when five will do? We aren’t looking for you to explain everything you’ve ever done, just a few of the key elements that will persuade us you can do the job.
#3 Gaps. Missing activity history (work, training, travel, etc.)
Moovijob: 5 candidates come to talk to you at the same time, which one do you choose?
I meet them all and choose the ones who have a potential to grow in the company with the relevant diploma and experience, the ones who are sharing our company’s values. At Orbium cultural fit of the candidate is key to proceed to the next steps.

N.H.: Positively superstitious… it will be a good day to meet the right candidates!
Moovijob: The ideal candidate is …
