Internal mobility: testimonials


I joined setec in 2014 through diadès, a Group company specialized in diagnostics and life-cycle engineering for major structures. Building on this experience, I was able to develop my skills through assignments focusing on rehabilitating rail engineering structures.
I then wanted to apply this knowledge to the construction of the future Grand Paris rapid transit project.
Currently working in construction management for setec tpi, I’ve kept in close contact with my former colleagues to better understand the life cycle of the structures we are building.

When I arrived at the Group in 1998, I had the opportunity to develop my career at setec bâtiment. As a project manager for seven years, I worked on several exciting projects in France (the Ministry of Culture, the entrance hall of the Musée d’Orsay, a university building in Bordeaux, the theatre at the Cité Universitaire in Paris, etc.) and abroad (the Canton stadium, Abu Dhabi International Airport, and the Mariinsky Theatre in Saint Petersburg). Then just when I was wondering what my next career move should be, I was offered the opportunity to join the sales department of the company I was working for as the head of sales for public contracts. I spent 10 years there, building teams for small and large projects, and managing the bid process with all kinds of architects, ranging from small start-ups to major international consulting companies. At the end of 2015, I was informed of a vacant position at the head of the construction department at setec organisation. After thinking things over during the Christmas break, I finally decided to make the leap. It’s now been over a year and overall a very positive experience on all sides – for myself, since I’m delighted with my new job, for setec organization, since I’ve brought with me approaches learned at another Group company, and finally for the Group, since I hope I’m offering curiosity and a broader vision !
Having started at the Group in 2009 as a trainee and then an engineer at setec international, I joined a construction management team for a motorway expansion project. There, I worked on the Nîmes-Montpellier bypass project, where I discovered the rail sector, which I found very interesting and wanted to explore further in my career, particularly rail sub-systems. Then in 2014, I had the chance to further my career internally by joining setec ferroviaire, where I received an excellent welcome in both professional and personal terms right from the start. Since then, I’ve worked on subjects that are quite varied technically, ranging from creating new lines to rehabilitating existing tracks, and covering all rail sub-systems (tracks, signaling, power supply, telecoms, etc.). I’m currently contributing to an international project and am also planning a move to Senegal.
