Eric, Formworker

I enjoy my job and working on construction sites. You have to like working in a group to be a Formworker - I wouldn’t like being on my own! 

I have autonomy, I am responsible for my formwork and I am proud to succeed with a complex project. And I know that I can develop within the company. It’s possible to have a career at Bouygues!
