BEYOND BORDERS – Corporate Strategy HQ

Make big plans. And create something new. That could be the motto of your trainee program in Corporate Strategy.

Are you eager to take on exciting tasks right from the start and contribute to the growth of Beiersdorf with customized strategies? Do you think that your entrepreneurial mindset can help to strengthen Beiersdorf and make it even more competitive in the global marketplace? Would you like to have an overview of the range of our strategic projects? And you are convinced that your analytical skills and approach to problem-solving can be a real asset when it comes to advising on specific business cases and supporting management in its decision-making?

If you have the confidence to take on challenges and present your ideas with passion, you've come to the right place. You can expect to gain insights into a wide variety of our Corporate Development areas – in local Sales or Controlling, in our CEO Office and in our Strategy, Venture Capital and Mergers & Acquisitions teams. You will design your own trainee program and choose between different areas according to your interests. This also applies to your six month assignment abroad, where you can choose one of our more than 170 subsidiaries. In addition, you will be part of an international trainee network and benefit from cross-functional projects and various development activities such as training and mentoring. That’s how we prepare you for an international management career at Beiersdorf!
