Sum IT Program

What is SUM IT?

SUM IT is our five-year Professional Development Program customized for Industrial Controllers who are eager to play a key role in the Energy Transition and Digitalization of our Communities. The 2022 edition will be number 3!

We dream big, we value innovation, we are committed to creating a greener future.
As successful as we’ve been in the past, we have so much further to go. That’s where you come in. Join us!


Are you up for the challenge?

Being a part of the SUM IT Program, your development will be supported with a 5-year plan built around initiatives, training and networking, while playing a key role for the local organization and contributing to its results.

The program starts from day 1; you will then join a two-week Global Induction with a track of training and activities created through the collaboration between Prysmian Group Academy and a top-ranking Business School.

After the induction, your learning path continues with training courses and networking events, that will allow you to develop your skills and unlock your full potential.

  • During YEAR 1, you will be involved in digital training courses on soft skills and diversity & inclusion, with the aim of building the foundations of our diverse culture and leadership.
  • In YEAR 2 and 3, you’ll take part in customized technical and advanced training courses through our Prysmian Group Academy, in collaboration with top Business Schools. Here you will build a strong professional network and learn how to apply the skills you have developed in your work. The SUM IT journey offers you much more than that! During your third year, you'll be assigned to a new role, depending on your performance, strongly linked to the core of our business.
  • In YEAR 4 and 5, you'll also have the opportunity to challenge yourself through engaging leadership courses based on performance and potential. In addition, you'll be involved in challenging projects and job rotations at local or regional level, continuing your career in the Prysmian Group.

The Recruiting Process


Prysmian Group Women in STEM

We’ve started our diversity and inclusion efforts with our “Side by Side” initiatives; we believed then and we strongly advocate even more now that people create companies and their own values and stories. Being a more supportive and inclusive company also means becoming a better one and more performing one. Our path is made of everyday activities and long-term plans. That’s why we have targets to achieve by 2030 in the area of social sustainability.

One of our goals is to involve +500 women in a fully dedicated STEM program by 2030.
