Are you looking for a challenging way to kickstart your career? Do you want to explore different functions and roles within a global family business? And are you ready to learn and quickly develop your skills? Then we invite you to join our trainee program!
Within Van Leeuwen we are always looking for talented colleagues that are determined to make a strong start in their careers. You will do so by joining the (international) trainee program in which you have the opportunity to either follow a generic program (in which you will rotate across different departments and specializations) or a more specific program (in Finance, Supply Chain or Sales). One of the highlights of the program is an international assignment in one of our worldwide locations. During your traineeship you will learn as much as possible about the organization and work hand-in-hand with the business to overcome future challenges and opportunities.
At the end of the 18-month program we will evaluate your experiences and jointly decide in which department and position you want to focus your career. Through your strong internal network and experience you can make an immediate difference within the business. Within Van Leeuwen, we believe you learn best when you are given real responsibility and are guided and coached throughout the program. Both personal development and group learning are important parts of the program, for which we will facilitate multiple trainee days at our head office in the Netherlands.

What are important (practical) requirements for the trainees we are looking for?
