The traineeship selection procedure starts twice a year. For the March 2018 selection the deadline to apply is November 5th. The application period will open on October 2nd. Check our vacancy page to apply for the traineeship of your choice and start the selection process.
The selection process for the FrieslandCampina Corporate Traineeship consists of four different components. It’s considered a tough yet valuable experience by candidates.
- 1st round: CV check
If you think you are the perfect FrieslandCampina Corporate Trainee, we would like to invite you to register on the discipline within the traineeship you wish to apply for.
- 2nd round: Video motivation
After you have been selected based on your resume we will ask you to send us a short video in which you elaborate on your motivation for this specific traineeship track and why we should ask you to become our new trainee.
- 3rd round: E-assessment
If you have been pre-selected on the strength of your CV and letter of application, you will be sent a digital assessment which evaluates various skills and abilities. This is done by means of capacity tests (numerical, verbal and inductive skills), a personality questionnaire and a motivation-based questionnaire.
- 4th round: Selection day
If you are one of the top candidates who successfully passed all rounds, you will be invited to attend the final selection day at the Central Office. You will be interviewed by our business who will discuss your motivation, you will have a reflection interview based on your e-assessment, do a role play with an actor and complete a group assignment. On top of that, you will meet our current trainees and you will be given more information about the content of our trainee program. This is of course also a chance for you to assess us. The selection days for the March 2018 cohort will take place on January 10, 12 and 17. If you apply for the traineeship we expect you to be available on these days.
A few days after the selection day, you will be personally notified as to whether you have been selected for our FrieslandCampina Corporate Traineeship
