The METRO Potentials management trainee programme is a two year programme designed for our METRO Cash & Carry countries. It is divided into 5 training blocks that are between three and six months long and take place either in the trainee's home country or abroad.
The programme fast-tracks ambitious master graduates and talented young professionals to a management career in international wholesale. The trainees benefit from 'on-the-job' training and 'off-the-job' learning modules such as 'knowledge & skills' and 'leadership behavior'.
During every training block you will take responsibility for one or more projects which will contribute to the development and progress of the business as well as yourself. Every trainee will be supported by a local mentor (country board member).
Our aim is to develop your knowledge and skills over the two years so that you are prepared to manage a team of your own.
You start in a METRO Cash & Carry store in your home country and you will stay there for six months. Here you have the responsibility of carrying out a project and directly taking care of customers.
Then you will move to the headquarters in your home country and you will work on another project for six months. The project and department will match your development and the chance to get a deeper understanding about wholesale.
The next 6-month station is another METRO Cash & Carry country - 25 countries are available here.
METRO’s international headquarters will host you in Düsseldorf for 3 months. You will experience the wholesale business from a strategic perspective.
The last three months will be spent in the home country again. An individual development plan will then also be drawn up here according to the METRO Potentials programme.
