Staying true to who you really are, that is your starting point at FrieslandCampina. Because it is precisely by embracing our differences that we can grow together. We want to create a working environment that allows all employees to bring their best and authentic selves. If who we are suits you, but you’re not sure if you’re the best fit for the role, we still encourage you to apply so we can help you find the role that fits you best.

The traineeship is a program of 2 years, where you will complete two assignments for one year. Your assignments will be based at one of our production locations in the Netherlands, Germany or Belgium. For example, as a trainee you start as a Team Leader at the packaging department in Leerdam, as a Continuous Improvement Project Manager in Beilen, or as a Demand Planner in Amersfoort. After the first year we assess together what could be a good second assignment for your development and personal growth. After the second assignment you will flow into a permanent position, which is a logical next step for your career within Supply Chain/Operations.
