You will learn and work at different locations for 6 months at a time, be directly involved in exciting projects and be able to take on responsibility in record time. Of course, you can expect regular feedback, individual mentoring and in-depth training. This is how we sustainably promote your professional and personal development and make you fit for a long-term specialist or executive career in logistics at the Rhenus Group.
Since 2016, we have annually received an award from the trendence Institute for the fairness in our trainee programme. The certification is based on the assessment of performance and framework conditions, mentoring and support, further development options and subsequent career prospects.
As a trainee, you are writing your first chapter of success in the Rhenus Group – but of course your journey is not over yet. Numerous opportunities await your ambitions to hit the next bull’s eye straight away.
For example, you can take the project management career path. In this case, you will plan, manage and implement varied projects for our business units. In close cooperation with the operational (management) level, you will handle every project. Managing customer projects and process design are also part of the job. Or you may aspire to an assistant function, e.g. to management. You will be involved in cross-divisional measures and support day-to-day business with entrepreneurial vision, assist with deadlines and prepare draft decisions. Your skills and talents are also in demand in quality management. You can apply what you have learned to the development and expansion of our quality management system. You will manage projects relating to warehouse and material flow planning, evaluate how we can optimise our processes and prepare detailed analyses to increase productivity.
Last but not least, you can let your eyes wander to the top of the career ladder. Here, senior positions await strong leaders – from branch and divisional management to executive management. How far you want to go is up to you.
