International HR Traineeship

Why choose the International HR Traineeship?

Being active in Europe, the United States and Indonesia, our company’s challenges extend beyond country borders. We strongly believe that our future leaders should develop an international mindset. That’s exactly what we aspire toward in our international traineeships – three-year development programs that offer you the opportunity to launch your HR career at Ahold Delhaize.

The program is built on three pillars: social and business development; technical and functional skills; and leadership development. You’ll also undertake at least four rotations among our different retail brands and countries. To stimulate cross-functional learning, you’ll engage in inspiring learning sessions together with fellow trainees and other associates. Personal growth and development are key aspects of this program that prepare you to become a seasoned professional and our company’s future leader. 

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.

What can you expect as an International HR trainee?

As an international HR trainee, ideally, you… 

  • Hold a Master’s degree, or will have it by the start of the traineeship
  • Have two years (max) work experience
  • Have an excellent proficiency in English (level C1 or up)
  • Reside in and are eligible to work in the country of the vacancy you’re applying for. Plus you’ll need to                                                                              have a good understanding (written and spoken) of that country’s language
  • And, most importantly, are excited and eager to start your development journey with us and possibly                                                                                become the next senior leader within our international organization!
