Career Opportunities in Belgium

Having the largest Evonik site outside Germany,  Evonik Belgium is a great place to work in both production, technical, and administrative roles.

One of the biggest multi-user sites of Evonik is in Antwerp, Belgium, where we have eleven production plants working for the company's four segments: Nutrition & Care, Resource Efficiency, Performance Materials, and Technology & Infrastructure. Evonik Antwerp is the largest site of the international group outside Germany and consists of 109 hectares of land hosting the largest Evonik worldwide plant for the production of methionine.

Antwerp manufactures products for a wide variety of applications. The Belgian site produces among others raw materials for the production of silicones for the electronics and communications industry in addition to binding agents for printing inks, paints and coatings, and raw materials for car tires.

The production site in Antwerp is distinguished by its excellent infrastructure with a port that provides a logistic advantage for the site, as well as the good connections by road and rail. It is the base of more than 1000 Evonik employees that make a difference every day.

Evonik Antwerp shows its true colors!  

Full of enthusiasm, our painters worked on this colorful crosswalk at our Belgian site in Antwerp. The pedestrian crossing gives a clear signal 365 days a year that diversity and inclusion are important for Evonik. Depending on the perspective from which you look at the crosswalk, you may see a colorful 3D effect that symbolizes that we make room for everyone’s perspective. With this, Evonik Antwerp sets an example for embracing diversity and inclusion 365 days a year!

Belgium is the sixth most densely populated country in Europe with a population of over eleven million people living on thirty thousand square meters of land, and it is divided into three regions: the Flemish, the Walloon, and the Brussels-Capital Region. Belgium got its independence from the Netherlands following the Belgian revolution in 1830, and it was one of the founding six countries of the European Union (EU).

Antwerp is the largest city in Belgium in terms of area and the second largest in terms of population after Brussels. It is only forty kilometers north of Brussels and has one of the biggest ports in the world, the Port of Antwerp-Bruges.

In the Antwerp skyline the Cathedral of Our Lady, which is on the UNESCO World Heritage List, proudly takes its place. A little further on, the MAS stands out: in this “Museum aan de Stroom” perhaps the most beautiful work of art is the view. From its 60-meter-high roof you can admire the entire city. The port of Antwerp-Bruges is the largest storage port of cocoa beans in the world. All major Belgian chocolate brands can be found in Antwerp, as well as artisan chocolatiers who make heavenly creations. Beer lovers will also find plenty to enjoy in Antwerp. “Bolleke” is the Antwerp beer and an icon of the city.

Most countries require a special visa if you are planning to work there. However, it is important to note that many countries in Europe are a part of the Schengen area, a zone where 27 European countries, abolished their internal borders, for the free and unrestricted movement of people. This means that if you are from a country that is a part of the Schengen zone, you may not require a visa to work in another country in the same zone. Our local site managers and their assistants can help you find out what the regulations are for their specific location.
