The Edenstep Digital curriculum is dedicated to jobs in the digital transformation, from architecture and data science, to project management, development, infrastructure, hosting, networks or security.


Edenstep, a career booster for young graduates

Every participant in Edenstep benefits from individual support (training and mentoring) throughout the entire program.

Starting on September 3, 2018, the 18 participants will spend a week at Edenred’s head office in Paris. This immersive induction will enable them to meet the Group’s senior executives, before spending one week discovering the company’s various operational activities in several European subsidiaries.

Between the end of September 2018 and September 2020, each participant will carry out two one-year missions in two Edenred countries. At the end of the program, they may receive a job offer from the Group.
