I have a question about - The pre-departure briefing
Yes, according to Belgian legislation you can combine two employment contracts simultaneously.
We even recommend staying under a contract with your current employer as long as possible because the administrative procedures for obtaining a work permit in the country of assignment can be lengthy. The date of your departure will be confirmed once the Junior Programme receives the country agreement.
To be able to attend the two weeks pre-departure briefing, we advise you to take leave (paid or unpaid leave) during this period.
Yes, after all, you are already under contract with Enabel during the pre-departure briefing.
Departure to the field is at the earliest on the first day of the month following the end of the pre-departure briefing.
The exact date of departure depends on the needs in the field, the time needed for administrative procedures (visa request…) and your period of notice. Because of these factors departure can sometimes take place one or two months after the pre-departure briefing ends.
No, the jobs offered by the Junior Programme are to be taken on within three months after the pre-departure briefing.
When you apply for a job, you actually commit to liberating for the briefing and for the departure period set in the job description.
In case of doubt, you can contact the Junior Programme colleague mentioned in the specific job description before applying.
