Starting your career at Elia



1 Selection procedure


  • If you apply for one of the exciting jobs at Elia, our recruiters will screen your CV and, if they think you could be right for us, will give you a call. This will give us a chance to get to know one another: the Elia recruiter will test a number of essential components while you will have the opportunity to ask questions. If you pass this stage, you will receive a link to a number of online tests. The next step is your first face-to-face meeting: the interview with the hiring manager and recruiter. At this point we will delve further into your career, values and attitudes to make sure that there is a cultural fit. For some roles, once you have passed the interview we will also schedule an assessment with our external partner.

2 Signing your contract


  • If at the end of this process both you and Elia feel that you are a match, you will receive an offer and we will explain our contract and terms of employment. Once you have signed your contract, we will welcome you as a new Elian! Before you start, you can use our Welcome app to learn much more about our company and activities. We strive to ensure that our new talents feel welcome at Elia!

3 Orientation day


  • Here at Elia, we like to give our new employees a warm welcome. We start with an orientation day at our Schaerbeek site. After a spot of breakfast, you learn about safety, receive practical information, and visit dispatching and a high-voltage substation.

4 Lighting Day


  • Once you have been at Elia for six months, we invite you to our site in the centre of Brussels. This is a time to reflect during a day filled with presentations about the energy transition or ongoing projects. Our CEO Chris Peeters will also be there. We provide more information about our culture, while you can put your questions to HR staff and better get to know your colleagues. We end the day with a reception with snacks and drinks.



Are we a match?

Are you wondering whether you and Elia are the perfect team? Do you want to help make the energy transition a reality but are not sure whether our strategy, culture and approach are right for you? Then take the test, because we want nothing more than driven employees who are happy at Elia.


Elia is Top Employer 2019

Thanks to our inspired HR policy, Elia has been awarded the Top Employer 2019 label, the second year in a row we have received this honour. This label means that Elia is one of the top two employers in the energy sector. It also recognises Elia's warm welcome of new employees, with a specific approach adopted from the moment they sign their employment contract to their first days at the company. We rest assured that our focus on encouraging continuous development among our employees is also rightly recognised. The Top Employer label is an acknowledgement of the way we view new ways of working, including flexible working hours, working from home and employees' work-life balance. Receiving the label was ultimately not down to us, so we especially want to thank our employees. After all, there is no Top Employer without Top Employees!
