Receptive / Creative

We expect a lot from our people and they also have high expectations of us. We attract professionals who are not simply looking for a rewarding role now. They want to know that they will grow professionally, with a company that invests in making them the very best they can be.

We invest in high-performers, and as a lean and efficient employer we are always looking to skill-up our people so that they can take on greater responsibility. It’s a win-win for you and VTTI, as you become more accomplished in your role.

As a global company we have also created a pool of international talent: people who are highly skilled and who we send, on temporary assignment, to our terminals worldwide.

It could be to perform a ‘fresh pair of eyes’ audit on process safety; or create a new IT infrastructure for a new terminal project; or train local contractors on the rigid standards of safety that we require.

With 12 terminals spread across 11 countries and 5 continents, and with new projects going live, you could find yourself on assignment in Asia, South America, the US, South Africa, the UAE or Europe.

Matching your ambition with our support

Many VTTI people are not just looking to be better at their roles, and to widen their horizons. In certain cases, and where extra learning or experiences may bring value to VTTI, we are happy to support them with time or resources.

At the moment, just some of the external courses being supported by VTTI include tuition in the Dutch language, a specialist legal course on contracts, a Masters in Labour & Organisational Psychology, specialist tuition in customs law, trading & hedging courses, negotiation skills and personal development coaching.

“How VTTI helped me to make The Leap.”

Jeroen's story
Jeroen van Beem
Technical Manager, VTTI NL

With VTTI’s support, I committed myself to a course called “The Leap”. What led me to it? It’s a developmental course that not only focuses on business and entrepreneurship but also the human side of enterprise.

It lasted for 13 months, and there were seven sessions of four days and several different assignments in between. I’m really grateful to VTTI for investing in me and giving me this opportunity, particularly as The Leap is unique and not every company would be so willing. In return, I believe I’m making a better contribution to the business.

It has helped me to improve my personal authenticity, enabling me to motivate and inspire my team and play a more valuable role in developing the company’s ambition. And even in my personal life I’m told it has made me a more balanced person.
