      Nadine

      I embarked my Beiersdorf journey as Marketing trainee in 2002. Thereafter, I worked in different local, regional, and global roles in our HQ & Dutch Affiliate. Since 2022, I work in a jobshare with my colleague Catherine as Marketing Director Germany/CH. We had several successes, such as the Best Brands Award for NIVEA. During my time as trainee, I learned a lot that has served me well over the last 20 years – not to forget the amazing trainee network.

      Kana

      I moved from Japan to Hamburg in August 2023 to start as a BEYOND BORDERS trainee. I first thought the career move would be a big leap for me, but now after some time, I’m glad that I chose Beiersdorf. Starting a career in a foreign country comes with a bundle of challenges but I’ve met so many inspiring colleagues and in the trainee community I’ve built friendships that serve as my support system. I really couldn’t have asked for a better career start.

      Sophie

      My trainee journey started in August 2023 together with 7 new trainees. Sharing the experience of being new to Hamburg, we were keen on exploring the city. Within weeks, I felt home and made amazing friends. Rotating through departments allows me to gain a multi-angle perspective on marketing while learning about different jobs at Beiersdorf. I believe there is no easier way to form your network within Beiersdorf than the BEYOND BORDERS Trainee.
