Discover your potential in 1 year

Our traineeship is a great way to start your career. During your one year programme you will work on real business projects, with real responsibility gaining high business exposure from day one. In total, you will work on three 4-month projects in several areas of our organization. Your first and third project will be in our HR department, varying from compensation & benefits, talent management to HR operations. This way you can truly get to know the ins and outs of our HR business, discover where your interests lie and deepen your understanding of HR. To help you broaden your knowledge and skills, you will also get the opportunity to do one project in another part of our business such as in finance, operations or sales & marketing. Having a well-rounded skillset will enable you to have that personal impact you are looking for to make a real difference.

Besides working on projects that will challenge you, we are also committed to develop your potential in other ways. So you can expect plenty of support and guidance throughout your traineeship. From training sessions geared towards your personal development, job specific training and the support and guidance of our HR colleagues, your line manager, project manager and personal buddy (always an ex-trainee) – you will get all the tools you need to shape your own professional-journey.

Your base-location is related to your project, but most projects will be at our office in Amsterdam.

Would you like to experience life working for one of the world’s most successful and innovative companies?

  • Why are you the candidate we are looking for?

The score you achieve with this assessment will help us to evaluate and decide if we will invite you for one of our Discover Days on 14 or 22 April. During the Discover Days you’ll have the opportunity to show us what you are capable of. And last but not least: we can show you what our world and organisation looks like!
