Working at Bata

Owen Begg, International Marketing & Sales Manager

“Since I started in 1995 I have had many roles within Bata Industrials. In 2014 I moved from Australia to the Netherlands to take up an international role in sales and marketing. It offered the opportunity to live and work in Europe, which was my dream, and expand my role within the organization at the same time. I believe that within an international company like Bata anything is possible and opportunities for personal growth and development will definitely arise. The people working at Bata really make you feel like you are part of one big family.”

Arno van Rijbroek, Finance & Administration

“What I like about working at the Bata organisation is that there are many possibilities. When you have an idea that could improve the process or make it more efficient, Bata is very open-minded and this will be praised. It is also possible to follow courses or schooling, if it is work related. It is a family business in which you can grow old. The career possibilities are endless, when you see and take chances. There are always people around to help you and personal growth is definitely encouraged.”

A large part of our safety shoes are developed and produced in Best in Noord-Brabant. Our investments in robotics, Research & Development and advanced technologies are bearing fruit. Founded in the Czech Republic in 1894, Bata was one of the first manufacturers to sell its products all over the world.
