Trainee programs

The all-round view in your department

When you come fresh from university or college, there are many doors open to you. One of the most exciting is our trainee program: Here you will be intensively prepared for future activities and locations. Broadly diversified programs offer you the opportunity to gain a wider view. You will pass through different stations and get to know new areas in this way. In this way you acquire extensive knowledge and create the basis for your personal network.

The aim of these programs is to prepare graduates and talented individuals with initial on-the-job experience for demanding specialist and management positions.

The difference compared to the classic direct entry is that the participants are immersed in our structures and working methods over a fixed period of 12 months. Most of the time, they go through different departments and stations in Germany and abroad. In addition, off-the-job training courses are used – perfectly adapted to the respective strengths and areas of development.

And what do direct entry and trainee programs have in common? As in all areas of Rothe Erde, attractive tasks await you, which you will master in a team.
