Our Munich office offers one position in our trainee program every year. This position is always in a different business unit.
The trainee program lays the foundation to become tomorrow’s experts or managers of TRATON. You should have a master’s degree and outstanding academic performance. We expect our trainees to be cooperative and team focused, and have excellent communication skills and a results-oriented working style.  
Suppose your dedication and academic knowledge are also above average. If you are fluent in English, have already spent time abroad, and are internationally minded, you could be one of our following trainees.  
In addition to cross-brand TRATON projects, our trainees will also have the unique opportunity to experience the particular characteristics of the various brands as they participate in cross-brand rotations to one or several of the TRATON brands: Scania, MAN, Volkswagen Caminhões e Ônibus, Navistar, or RIO and if suitable in our TRATON AB office in Södertälje, Sweden.
You will experience 15 months fully packed with valuable learning experiences and challenging, real business projects in close cooperation with highly experienced international colleagues.  
Your trainee program starts directly with our cross-brand onboarding week in September. During this week, you will have the opportunity to connect with other trainees of all TRATON brands and get a first comprehensive introduction to your TRATON journey. After starting the program, you can proactively plan your rotations in consultation with your direct manager. The program’s first stage usually is within your home department, followed by three rotations in other departments and brands of the TRATON GROUP. Additionally, the program offers the opportunity to spend time in dealerships.  
After completing the trainee program and demonstrating excellent performance, you have the chance to participate in an extra three-month project module. This offers you the opportunity to work on an actual business project in a cross-brand team and present the results to members of the Truck Board.  
You will have a mentor from your home department and the TRATON Talent Management team throughout the entire program. Once you have finished the program, you will have an excellent network, which will be valuable for any future function within the TRATON GROUP.
