LEARN MORE:

We are KAEFER.

From taking KAEFER’s ethical approach to heart in Brazil and growing both personally and professionally in the UAE to cooperating with an international team in Germany and braving snow, wind and waves on a shipbuilding site in Italy, KAEFER’s people regularly encounter challenges. And master them effectively.

The sheer diversity not only of our divisions, industries and projects, but also of our multinational and multitalented employees make KAEFER an exciting place to work and grow. But don’t just take our word for it. Our people are our greatest asset. And they’re also our greatest proponents as well.

 

Global KAEFER voices

Jonas Boman, Sweden

I don’t want my children to follow in my footsteps. I want them to take the path I did and go further than I could ever dream of. That’s possible at KAEFER.

Family man Jonas Boman believes that KAEFER is a great place for people. It’s where he began to develop not just as an employee, but also as a person. This comes from KAEFER’s commitment to continuous improvement and the possibility to learn something new every day on the job. Knowledge that he hopes those around him can learn from – including his young family.

Liliane Pereira
Matos, Brazil

KAEFER is ethical and traditional, yet forward-thinking and progressive at the same time.

For Liliane, it’s passion that drives success. Which is why she joined KAEFER. And, most importantly, that’s why she stayed. Part of it also comes from the international nature of the job, and it’s getting to know other cultures and realities that drives Liliane forward.

Damian Cup & Krzysztof Sarad,
Poland

Proving ourselves. By taking the championship.

You could call Damian and Krzysztof a winning combination – both young men competed in the Insulation Apprentice Championship in 2016 and won. Not just on a national level, but on a European level as well. Thanks to KAEFER’s fostering of new talent, they took the lessons they learned and applied them to make the most of their education and training.

Marymol Yujin, United Arab Emirates

It’s great to be able to rely on such a dedicated and resourceful team unconditionally.

The one thing that makes KAEFER different for Marymol is how the company recognises and promotes talented people. That’s why Marymol was able to implement Enterprise Resource Planning in the UAE so effectively – it was a team effort, with every member’s skills being utilised in the best possible way.

Kasimir Kovasin, Finland

Every project is one of a kind. And every one has its own challenges.

Most people would think Italy would be a nice place to be in early spring. Kasimir thought so. But while working on a shipbuilding project there, he had to battle storms, wind and snow while coordinating over 100 people to get the job done. Kasimir did – much to the satisfaction of the clients.

Francisca Gorgodian, Germany

The opportunities are there. You just have to open your eyes and grab them.

Francisca has been with KAEFER for over 15 years. In that time, she’s worked in Argentina, Australia, Mexico and now Germany. It was the opportunity to work in different roles as well as in different countries that's made the job so fascinating for her. And she’s looking forward to taking the next one.

Marco Haase, Germany

When I finished my apprenticeship, I was given a road atlas. I had no idea why. Four days later I was sent to work around the country. Now I know why.

Werder Bremen fan Marco works everywhere in Germany. As a project manager, he makes sure that even the most time-critical and quality-sensitive projects are completed to the satisfaction of KAEFER clients. And he loves being on the road as much as he did the first day with his atlas in hand.

Rogerio Beluci, Brazil

Working at KAEFER is my way of life.

Rogerio genuinely loves what he does in Integrated Management. For over 17 years, he has enjoyed KAEFER’s dynamism, agility, flexibility and commitment to working together as a team – without borders. These are all attributes he would use to describe himself as well. Which is why he feels like it’s such a good fit.

Silvia Sempere Sancho, Belgium

I’ve grown a great deal thanks to facing new situations and looking at them in different ways.

Sometimes it's hard to be a woman. Especially in the male-dominated construction sector. But Silvia found that by being a professional through and through and taking responsibility, the few people that may have doubted her no longer did. KAEFER’s culture of ‘togetherness’ helped Silvia realise her full potential and grow as an individual and employee.
