The BEYOND BORDERS trainee program is an opportunity for young professionals to begin an international career within a dynamic corporation. Beiersdorf is looking for employees who can move effortless between countries, cultures and languages. The BEYOND BORDERS trainee program turns talented recruits into cross-culturally adept young managers. The opportunity to gain experience beyond your own professional expertise is what makes BEYOND BORDERS unique!
The company offers its BEYOND BORDERS trainee program for university graduates in our headquarters in Hamburg and our affiliate in the UK responsible for the management unit for Northern Europe (Holland, Denmark, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Iceland and Great Britain).
During the 18-24 month BEYOND BORDERS program, graduate trainees will gain insights into different departments. They will gather international experience during a five to six month foreign assignment at one of our affiliates. This way we can ensure that our future managers not only know and understand the Hamburg headquarters but also the view from, and the cultural features of, our affiliates.
