Overview

Adecco Group is hiring an IT Solutions Specialist in our corporate IT department. This role requires a person who is a problem solver; a creative - out of the box thinker, who can communicate well with customers and listen to their problems, come up with technically sound, innovative solutions, and work with a select team of like-minded individuals to build a solution and move forward to the next project. This role will also work closely with our global digital innovation team, so there is no shortage of interesting projects to dig into.

 

Our IT department is not Google, or Facebook, or Apple - in fact, we are nowhere near a Silicon Valley culture - and that's ok with us. What we are is a small but mighty group of creative people that love our customers and our company’s mission – which is to “make the future work for everyone”. The applications we create or integrate together make it easier for our candidates to find meaningful work and grow their careers – what could be better than that!
