Our Trainee-Programme: your door to the world

As a recent Master’s graduate with a business studies or technical degree focus, the world is your oyster. And this is especially true if you opt for our international Trainee-Programme, which we currently offer in Germany, Italy and in the Netherlands.

As a programme participant, you will be given an unlimited employment contract, and will spend 18 months working in different departments on a rotational basis. You will thus become familiar with the world of Dr. Oetker (your placements will be in various product areas, e.g. fresh products, frozen products, ambient products) and be optimally prepared for a position with greater responsibility.

We support you by providing you with regular information sessions, feedback talks, individual development and further education measures, an experienced mentor and a personal supervisor. During your six-month placement abroad, you will be involved in a country-specific project and, together with all the trainees in your year, will complete a joint interdisciplinary project assigned to you by the Members of the Board.

For our international Trainee-Programme, we are looking for open-minded team players with strong communication skills keen to gain work experience abroad as they forge a career at Dr. Oetker. We require the following qualifications and skills:

  • A very good degree (Master’s or “Diplom”) with a relevant focus
  • International experience (e.g. gained through internships or study placements abroad)
  • In addition to your mother tongue, very good English skills and, ideally, knowledge of a further foreign language
  • A high level of intercultural competence and interdisciplinary interest

After completing your Trainee-Programme, you can show us that you have what it takes to grow with our team and to take on more and more responsibility, regardless in which country, and whether in Bielefeld or in Johannesburg. By offering you a variety of measures, we ensure that you are well-prepared for the challenges ahead. You may well be a suitable candidate for our international Talent Development Programme (TDP), which we have developed according to the needs of our young up-and-coming talents.
