🥜 In a nutshell

During this leadership program, you’ll dive into all operational aspects of Picnic. We’ll coach you to become a true leader in one of our Fulfilment Centers and teach you to supervise 100+ people per day. Additionally you will get more and more project responsibility over time, helping to increase the overall efficiency in our FCs. You can take complete ownership over those projects, but don’t worry, it’s OK to make mistakes!

You will develop your soft skills through training sessions and on the job learning, related to topics such as: providing constructive feedback, getting to know your own leadership style, and managing projects from A to Z. Next to that you will improve your hard skills by the use of our tech and analytical tools.
