Do you have a commercial sense and a strong interest in Business Development, Marketing, Sales, Operations or Finance? Are you eager to work with leading global brands in an international context? Join our Nordic Management Trainee program, get great responsibilities from the start and straight away learn more about our working culture: passion for innovation, diversity, result orientation, creativity, team-spirit and fast career paths.

During our 12-month program you will learn a lot and very quickly. You will have 2 to 3 rotations in different divisions/business units and/or functions and potentially in other Nordic countries as well.

For instance, the first rotation could be as a sales representative in our Consumer Product Division with Maybelline and Garnier products in your portfolio. Then you discover marketing within the Professional Products Division (Redken, Kerastase…) as a product manager responsible for the launch of a new brand on the Nordic Market. And why not finishing your program within Finance at the Luxury Product Division (Biotherm, Lancôme…)?

For each rotation you will be given a specific project with performance objectives and direct support from the management and HR.
You will rapidly build a wide and strong network within the company (for instance through mentorship) and not only at a country level. You will be part of the Nordic Management trainee community and network.

Thanks to this program, you will get the “big picture” and become an expert on one or many of the Nordic markets. You will be based in one of the Nordic capitals (Copenhagen, Helsinki, Oslo or Stockholm) but might have to travel on few occasions to other Nordic countries for some days or a full rotation.

Let’s be honest: This program is challenging! You need to adapt constantly to different environments and different ways of working in a short time frame. Indeed our objective is to prepare you for a successful and challenging career within the L’Oréal Group. That is why you will receive a permanent contract from the start even if the program itself is 12 months long.

… recent graduates who are ready to kick-start their careers within sales, marketing, logistics or finance.

  • Looking at our successful management trainees, they happened to:
  • have a deep interest in business, branding and FMCG
  • not be afraid to take responsibility
  • be ambitious, result driven and entrepreneurial
  • see each opportunity as a business project.

Moreover they don’t see the word “career” without the word “international”. On the day to day, they take ownership of their projects, even for a short time. They naturally take initiatives and are team players even if they enjoy working independently. They inspire and motivate colleagues or friends.

We have some absolute requirements for these management trainee positions. You need to have:

  • a relevant masters within: Sales, Marketing, Retail, Business Administration, Supply Chain or Economics. You are either on your final semester of your masters, or have received your degree no later than 1 year ago
  • fluency in one of the Nordic languages & English (written and spoken)
  • international working experience.

Apply online by July 1, 2016 with your CV only (cover letters are not needed). Candidates selected to continue in the process will receive an invitation to a numerical test and to create a video at a later stage. After the interview rounds, the final candidates will be invited to our assessment center in Copenhagen on August, 18th 2016 .

The start date is flexible depending on the selected candidates (between the September 1, 2016 and January 1, 2017).
