Management Trainee Program RISE

Our paid Management Trainee program RISE gives you the opportunity to put your knowledge into practice and work on real business projects. During the 2-year programme you´ll rotate through different departments, learning about all critical aspects of our business. You´ll be exposed early to leaders to build confidence und a sound understanding of our processes. The skills you´ll gain and the network you´ll build will help you build a career anywhere. Sound interesting? Look for open positions!

Meet some of our former and current Management Trainees

Across all our locations our Management Trainees have experienced exponential professional growth as they took over responsibility early and got the chance to work with senior leaders from the very start.

Some stayed in the department they started at, others have changed their career path as they found something even more fulfilliung. Some work with us for years and some have become leaders themselves. 

Our Management Trainees have learned a lot. Get ready to take notes as some of our former Management Trainees are about to tell you about their experiences and to share with you their best advice. 

"If you can't change a situation, change the way you think about it." Meet Peter, former Management Trainee, who learned a lot and is now Sales Manager in Poland, Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia.

"Don't be afraid to ask questions!" says Pawel, former Management Trainee who has become Senior Customer Logistic Specialist in Poland.

Katharina from Austria shares her best advice: "Take your chances, take all the positions you can get as they are milestones in your career". And she´s a good example herself: She started as a trainee and is now IC Key Account Manager (IC: Immediate consumption).

Meet Dominic from Poland, who joined us as intern before he started the Management Trainee programme RISE. His tip: "Stay open to new assignments that can teach you something new."

Vlad Petca Vlad Petca

Learn from Vlad, Production Manager in Romania who was determined to learn a lot in order to take a big step in his career and was surprised to find himself in a leadership position even before he finished our RISE program.

"I never thought I could learn so much in such a short time! It pushed me to my limits, but this is the kind of experience I needed in order to take the next big step in my career."
