Picnic is the fastest growing company in the Netherlands. Within three years, we’ve grown from 8 to 3,000 people, and from 0 to 300,000 customers! Want to know our secret? Looking to boost your career? Then apply to Picnic’s Fast Track to Leadership in Supply Chain.

During this leadership programme, you’ll dive into all operational aspects of Picnic, and we’ll help you to become a true leader in one of our Fulfilment Centres. Fulfilment what? A Fulfilment Centre (FC) is the nerve centre of our operations. It’s where Shoppers assemble orders for our customers, before dispatching them to a Hub wherefrom we drive the goods in our electric vehicles to our customers. Up to 500 people work in an FC, and we’re looking for someone to lead them!

Not convinced? Then how about learning everything you need to know to become a great operations manager, in under 2 years. From soft-skills such as leadership and project management to hard-skills, such as Excel and Tableau, you will receive all the training necessary (and more!) in only a couple of years. Think this is just another traineeship? It’s not! Are you ready for the challenge?

At Picnic, we believe in giving responsibility to everyone, and we trust in each other’s proactiveness to get the job done. Within such an environment, you’ll have the ability to apply all your learnings within a real-life professional environment and develop yourself the way you see fit. In the leadership programme, you’ll be provided with a range of tools, and will be put in the environment, that will allow you to grow into an amazing leader.

What challenges await you

Year 1

You start off the programme strong with an extensive onboarding, where you get to rotate between various teams such as the Distribution team, the Tech team or the Customer Success team. Once you’ve been around a few teams, you move to an FC where you take on the role of a Shopper, Shopper +, Captain, Supervisor and junior Operations Manager. At the same time, you are coached by experienced team members and mentors, and you attend classes and workshops all focusing on leadership. But you are always in command of your own development, so together, we build your personalized programme. Periodically, you meet with your mentor and decide on what next step is best for you.

Year 2

After you’ve mastered the skill of leading an FC, it’s time to focus on improving the supply chain processes. You move to a different FC, and your training shifts to project management. With all the experience you’ve gathered, you now have more time to develop your own projects and ideas to further improve our operation while you train in the latest tools available.
