After the programme is before the new career goal

After completing the Automotive trainee programme, you can stay in the fast lane – as a goal, various options await you within the framework of our specialist or executive careers.

As a project manager, you will plan, design, support and manage a wide range of processes and projects – thanks to you, every project will be successfully completed. If you would prefer to accelerate your career as an operational manager with personnel responsibility, you can join us as a logistics team leader. Or you can set your personal satnav to the area of branch management – initially as a deputy, later with budget responsibility.

Quality always comes first for you? Perfect, in automotive quality management, you act as a sovereign planner and consultant for our branches. You will design the respective process landscape, manage systems for document distribution and contribute your expertise in the course of audits. In the role of process engineer, the skills you have acquired in the trainee programme will also be put to full use. You will process tenders received from customers, prepare project costings and submit offers – thus you will handle every process related to tender management.

Do you prefer to think in terms of figures and like to make sure that the bottom line is as it should be? Then business administration at our (inter)national automotive locations should be the perfect connection point for you.

Whatever you choose, as a trainee in the automotive sector of the Rhenus Group, you can easily shift into the next gear and start a professional future with excellent prospects.
