Your traineeship usually begins in Germany at our Headquarters. There you will get an overview of the company structure and processes in one of our most important markets. Your role will be structured but fluid, allowing you to get operational and strategic experience across a number of departments in your area of specialism.
Eight months into the program you will begin another exciting stage in your journey, spending six months abroad at one of our 170 international subsidiaries. There you’ll support your international colleagues in their day-to-day business and work on fascinating local projects. This experience will broaden your knowledge of intercultural differences, an essential skill when working in a global, consumer-orientated company.
The final piece in your trainee journey is cross-functional experience in another department. If, for example, you have decided to specialize in Brand
Management & Digital Marketin you may choose to spend time in Business Controlling to expand your professional knowledge and grow your internal network.
Training takes many forms, from one-on-ones to group
trainings, coaching session and workshops. Our trainees can furthermore engage
in BEYOND BORDERS consulting projects with different business units. You will be supported throughout the time by a management level mentor and a ‘buddy’ – an experienced trainee.
As the name suggests, BEYOND BORDERS is open and flexible, so together with us you can shape it to suit both: you and the business.
