Endless success stories: Here’s how it can go on

As a Finance & Controlling trainee, you will be writing your first chapter of success in the Rhenus Group – but of course your journey is not over yet. Numerous opportunities are waiting for your ambitions to directly land the next bull’s eye, gladly internationally as well.

As a business controller, you will prepare business analyses for our site managers, management and the Head of Accounting & Controlling. You are equally adept at helping our sites with commercial questions, always keeping an eye on the Group’s requirements. With you, we can handle any number-based project and constantly raise our systems and workflows to new levels.

As a finance trainee, you can also support our management level as an assistant to the CFO or Managing Director. In this position, which is as demanding as it is responsible, you will work closely with your superiors and contribute your expertise in a wide range of topics. This includes preparing, documenting and following up on meetings in which the course is set for the Finance and Controlling sector. Our specialists at regional and local levels rely on your support for all aspects of monthly accounting, ad hoc analyses and decision-making. Of course, you can also become a guide yourself in this regard – for instance, when you implement your own projects, e.g. for the digitalisation of controlling measures.
