A-kwadraat is a social enterprise with more than 600 employees. Just like any other company, A-kwadraat offers many exciting career opportunities. We happily take the interests of employees into account. That’s the best recipe for personal growth.
A-kwadraat offers meaningful work for people with an occupational disability. Some find their way through the VDAB (Flemish Service for Employment and Vocational Training). You can read below just how that works. Others contact us directly. We have a wide range of opportunities waiting just for them.
What used to be called a ‘sheltered workplace’ is now a ‘social enterprise’: we offer tailor-made work, in tune with the skills and capacities of people. This is meaningful, adapted and paid work. We’re going for it, together with you. Want to join us? You will need recognition from VDAB.
Don’t have recognition yet?
If you think you qualify, you can apply for recognition. You can do so in the workshop of the municipality you live in.

A-kwadraat attaches great importance to providing the correct framework for all employees. To create a safe work environment for employees with a work disability, A-kwadraat employs up to 90 supervisors. They give training and offer support where it’s needed most. They also provide all the necessary tools to make sure that everyone can perform his or her task. Mutual respect and an attitude of trust are the foundations of the relationships in the workplace.
There are also occasional vacancies for support services such as administration, accounting, communication, sales and finances.

We find it important that all of our employees can develop their capabilities to the fullest. That’s why we work with personal development plans that we discuss together annually.
Training and education are important to us. That way, we can anticipate the processes that are becoming increasingly difficult. We want to prepare new employees for the work they are going to do. And we want to get a better view of the skills they have, so that we can see where people stand out and where they can evolve. The focus is on internal development: allowing people to grow optimally, even in other functions. External growth is also an option. For employees who want and can do so, we work on a trajectory that helps them find work at a company in the NEC (Normal Economic Circuit).
Holiday work at A-kwadraat is always a good idea. Thanks to the unique character of a social enterprise, working for us is an enriching experience. And of course you earn some cash to spend when you go out, to go on that dream holiday or to save up for a first big purchase. Interested? Get in touch.
