Regional Manager, Düsseldorf
If Bertil Hult, the founder of EF, were an ideological dreamer, EF would have never become the world’s largest education provider. A focus on sales, ambition, entrepreneurial creativity, and the motivation to be faster and better than all the others has turned EF into the world leader in education.
Having the right people on board is the key factor for our success: Almost all of our international managers learned the ropes in one of our sales offices. They know the ins and outs of all our processes, are familiar with customer needs and are able to support our markets effectively. To us, degrees, professional experience or industry-specific knowledge is not as important as the right attitude and entrepreneurial spirit. If you are an “EF Type”, you can take on a variety of leadership positions within a short time.
There are jobs that are exciting but don’t offer any chances for a long-term career. There are jobs that pay well but are boring. There are jobs with a pre-set path that offers no flexibility to try something new.
