Leader Acceleration Program

LeAP is the Teleperformance Portugal management trainee program that will literally catapult you into the world of management. First we´ll send you for a 1-month internship to another Teleperformance office outside Europe. After this, you will receive five months of intensive preparation. At the end of the program, you will be able to manage operations and multicultural teams of any dimension.

LeAP was created with the goal to identify highly talented people with big potential across Portuguese universities.  Teleperformance Portugal provides the necessary conditions to enable them to develop their management and leadership skills.
With 6 months duration, the program is divided into three parts. The LeAPers start their journey in Teleperformance Portugal as Business Analysts in order to develop their business analysis skills.
The second part is a 1-month internship in a Teleperformance office outside Europe. This allows the participants to learn new, different methods and exchange experience and knowledge with colleagues across the borders.
The final phase of the program is the participation in the JUMP training which allows, together with other colleagues selected for this training, to develop their knowledge and leadership skills. This training enables the participants to assume First Line Manager functions and manage multicultural teams.
