Icade is highly ambitious when it comes to hiring young talent. A volunteer effort that responds to a threefold challenge: prepare ground for the next generation, foster employability of young people, and promote diversity.
In order to build a talent pool, Icade has established partnerships with three grandes écoles: ESTP, ESSEC, and, more recently, HEC.
This partnerships policy fits perfectly into its proactive approach of helping students find their vocations, identifying talents, and even recruiting them.
Sharing knowledge and expertise helps students explore all the jobs we do at Icade.
There are currently three generations working side by side in the company. It results in dialogue, knowledge sharing, and reverse mentoring!
Icade is committed to helping professionalise young talent through an active policy of internships and work-study contracts, which are a real asset for recruitment.
Icade offers a wide variety of internships and work-study contracts that help students develop value-add skills. Those skills are key to understand and meet our operational and strategic challenges.
Throughout the training journey, young people receive close support that offers them career immersion in the exciting field of real estate.
