International Finance Traineeship

Why choose the International Finance traineeship? 

Our financial household is the backbone of our organization. Our goal is rather straightforward: we take care of the finances – for the organization and our entire family of brands. We provide the financial expertise and valuable insights that drive the business performance at Ahold Delhaize and our brands all over the world.

Being active in the U.S., Indonesia and Europe, our financial challenges do not stop at country borders. The International Finance Traineeship is a 3-year development program in which you get the opportunity to start your finance career at Ahold Delhaize. 

To become a seasoned finance professional, you will have at least four rotations within or between our different brands and countries. The program is built on three pillars: social and business development; technical and functional skills; and leadership development. You experience retail from the corporate side by having functional skills training and by working on finance related projects. Engaging in international assignments will prepare you in becoming Ahold Delhaize’s next future leader. We stimulate cross-functional learning by organizing learning sessions, together with fellow Trainees and other inspiring colleagues.

Are you eager to work with an energetic, diverse group of colleagues and do you take initiative in, responsibility for, and ownership of your work? Do you set the bar high and are you excited to start pioneering, and growing? And do you care about helping people eating well, saving time and living better? Have a look below and find out what you can expect from our International HR Traineeship.
