Trainee Programme

Valora’s trainee programme is designed as an entry level training and development programme for qualified university graduates. The aim of the programme is to train and develop the next generation of employees for the long term.

Over the course of a 15-month period the trainees prepare themselves for future retail business responsibilities at Valora. The trainee programme has been a firm fixture at Valora since 2008. In the introductory phase our trainees receive an insight into the different areas and sales formats within our business. In addition, they get to know all the key people and interfaces and build a network of contacts within Valora. The focus of the trainee programme lies on training the trainees on the job. This is accompanied by individually customised training measures.

  • Initial work experience from work undertaken whilst studying
  • Team player with a convincing demeanour and a capacity for enthusiasm
  • Innovative personality with an interest in introducing and implementing his/her own ideas

What can you expect?

For the operation of our comprehensive network of sales outlets, we rely on qualified specialists in various areas. We offer work in the areas of Marketing, Category Management, Purchasing, Finance & Controlling, Communications and Human Resources.

The size of our main office (around 300 employees) covers diverse areas of activity and simultaneously enables uncomplicated and direct cooperation. The flat hierarchies and the informal atmosphere facilitate this further.
