“Your future starts here”

Attracting and retaining young people with high potential, leadership qualities and the ambition to embrace new challenges are crucial factors in building the future of the Mota-Engil Group. With the aim of responding to sustained growth, Mota-Engil launched the Corporate Trainee Programme – start@ME.

The purpose of start@ME is to welcome talented young people starting out in their careers, encouraging them to align with the Group's culture and values and integrate into various markets and different business units. It also offers them the opportunity to develop a career in one of Portugal's largest and most diverse business groups, with a strong international component.

Our People must have the talent required to transform the ambition of Today into the reality of Tomorrow.

António Mota


The programme, which started in 2009 and lasts for one year, already has five editions. In 2017, the Mota-Engil Group integrated about 130 Trainees in the areas of Engineering for all the regions.

As was the case in previous editions, the training and growth process of these talented young people will include contact with different businesses, learning about innovative methods, networking with key figures and the development of skills in an international context.

To embrace this challenge, the Mota-Engil Group aims to attract recent graduates from Engineering, Economics, Management and others... whith critical spirit, openness to learning, ease of adaptation and willingness to develop an international career. If you think this is the challenge for you, be aware of the next steps ( watch testimonials and videos from previous editions).
