Setting out your own career path
After a career of 23 years in the Belgian Defense, it was time for a change. The slogan that attracted me to become a Logica employee was “You have your career in your own hands”. Now, 4 years later, I can say that I have taken my career in my own hands. I am a senior Java Developer and group leader for the Java Competence Center. Due to the fact that we are developing innovative, state-of-the-art Java Enterprise applications, Logica foresees training possibilities for the consultants to keep in line with the fast changing technologies.
Logica is a global player and in the context of “One Logica”, you get in contact with other countries and cultures. Logica has a strong focus on people management and provides a working environment where work and life is balanced.
Logica offers me a lot of variation in my daily job and gives me the opportunities to set out my career path in the way that I want.
Peter Hardeel, group leader Java
Innovation as differentiator
“With loads of passion, you can even make the world of bits and bytes move!” This quote fully applies to me.
Armed with the knowledge I had gained from my previous marketing experience in the chemical and healthcare sectors, I joined the IT business and consultancy sector with great enthusiasm. It has now been almost a year since I assumed this new role, one that I find is often challenging, but at the same time, stimulating, full of opportunities to be creative and to innovate. At Logica, the environment is very dynamic and fast-paced, and offers me the chance to work on state-of-the-art projects with talented international colleagues. I am delighted that showing initiative with a can-do mentality is really valued here!
I put my knowledge and my heart into my job every day. That’s how I try to make a difference in practicing innovative marketing, and that translates into creating value, both for Logica and for our clients.

I started my career at Logica (Softguide) back in 1998… the golden years in IT. We have now just being merged with CGI, which will be a challenge for the company but eventually I am convinced it will be an enrichment for both companies and their employees.
During my career at Logica I made an evolution from developer over functional analyst to project lead. Thanks to the variety of projects I was able to develop my skills. This resulted in being a key person in guiding a team through new developments and payroll support in a continuously changing HR environment at a major international pharmaceutical company.
Logica has given me the opportunity to grow in my role at this project and move forward in my career. It is great to work for a company like ours. I can always rely on my colleagues for advice. There is always someone who can be your guide in developing your skills. Because of frequent interactions with your group leader, you can push your career in the direction you want. Hard work and commitment are the key values here…
They often say “a chain is only as strong as its weakest link”. If we all are brilliant together, the Logica chain will never break.
