Working for FIT
Working for FIT means working for Flanders in an international environment. We come into contact with the business world on a daily basis, both in Flanders and far beyond its borders.
Every FIT employee can fully deploy and further develop his or her expertise. As befits a modern networking organization, we are constantly connected – across teams, regions, national borders and sectors.
That makes us unique as a government organization.

What a job at FIT represents
Our employees not only come into contact with different cultures and sectors, they also combine various roles and responsibilities.
So, no rigid job descriptions, but a lot of variety and an exciting range of tasks that you can personally adapt. And all in an international context.
Our employees largely determine for themselves how they approach their work and how they grow in their job. FIT provides a high degree of autonomy and little hierarchy.
Mutual trust is the common thread here, although this naturally also requires a strong sense of responsibility, flexibility and integrity.
At FIT, colleagues continuously learn from experts, both internally and externally. Through inspiring webinars and training courses from coaches, research centers, etc.
Our philosophy: by investing in the growth of our employees, we are also making our organization, business world and economy future-proof.
To support companies in their international ambitions, we focus on personal contact with the customer. Only in this way can we discover what really matters to our target groups and proactively adjust our services accordingly.
Connectedness is also the most precious asset among FIT colleagues. To this end, we are strongly committed to internal communication and training.
Together with companies, FIT employees build on the international success of the economy of Flanders every day.
It’s meaningful work that not only generates positive energy, but also has a major social impact. International entrepreneurship creates jobs, strengthens our competitiveness and enriches our economy with new expertise.
