With a presence in more than 20 countries around the world and employing more than 50 different nationalities, we have made expatriation one of our major assets.

Thanks to our international profile and our internal mobility, you may, for instance,  start your career in our domestic market, and then be transferred for a defined period of time in another country within or outside Europe and, ultimately, choose to come back or stay abroad. 

We have a strong presence in many European countries and in the Middle East. We are also active in Australia, in Asia and in Africa.


An adventure and a way of living

A first or new international assignment demands a lot of determination and perseverance. By leaving behind your life “as you know it”, taking the next step and choosing for an expat life and career at BESIX, you will become a member of the BESIX global expat family. You will discover a different world as new career opportunities will present themselves on a regular basis.

Your international career will be an adventure. It will be the most challenging undertaking you’ve ever committed to. Ultimately, you will grow immensely as a person and have life-changing experiences. You will build a network of international contacts, meet different people and discover exciting cultures.

“Working abroad has positively changed my mindset and values. Being able to work on a unique and important project, such as one of the highest towers of the African continent, is an unforgettable life experience. Everyday is a new adventure, both professionally and personally. I meet warm and welcoming people and I discover the tradition and culture of Morocco. I am forever grateful for the opportunity BESIX has given me.”

Lucile Neyrinck, BIM Coordinator/Technical Office Architect

“23 years of expatriation, 17 of which have been with BESIX, lead me to take stock of what has been a positive career so far. Each of the projects I have carried out with passion have brought me undeniable learning. Not to mention the wonderful encounters I have made along the way, all of which are cherished memories.”
