The Graduate Program consists of three assignments of six months each as a part of your full-time employment.

Our six-months assignments usually consist of specific projects for which you take full responsibility and ownership.

This gives you the chance to put together your individual Trainee journey based on your interests and passions. We highly recommend that you apply for different areas of operation and roles.
