The 18 months Supply Chain Trainee program prepares the Trainees with international and functional flexibility as well as a profound knowledge for Central, Market and Plant functions.

What can you expect?


The Supply Chain Management Trainee Program consists of three program phases. The first six months you will learn about the day-to-day business and relevant tools, systems and processes in your home location – a market, plant or central organization in EMEA/AMERICAS/APAC. 

During the second phase of the program, you will work together in multicultural business teams with Supply Chain trainees from different regions getting to know the tools, systems and processes of the central organization. Within the six months, you will not only have the opportunity to get to know central functions but also to start to work operational. 

In the final phase, you will have the chance to deepen your international experience, learning on the job in a market/ plant/ central organization. The full 18 months of international experience will increase your understanding and knowledge of all reporting and planning processes and you will broaden your strategic view to understand the “big picture” of Supply Chain Management in our global organization. 

After having successfully completed the trainee program, you will have the chance to demonstrate and strengthen the knowledge you have acquired in a key function within Continental Supply Chain Organization.
