Frequently asked questions about our programme

Quando posso candidarmi?

Qui facciamo le cose diversamente. Anziché avere posizioni sempre aperte, abbiamo scelto di assumere talenti solo nei ruoli e nei momenti in cui lo riteniamo necessario. Per noi, non è solo questione di numeri ma di persone. Assumiamo quanti talenti siano necessari, durante tutto l’anno!

Per quali sedi posso candidarmi?

I nostri neolaureati lavorano in tutte le sedi d’Europa. Dove lavorerai dipende dalle posizioni aperte al momento della candidatura. Solitamente comunque il primo ruolo è nel Paese di residenza. Nel corso della tua carriera in Mainfreight, si presenterà sicuramente l’occasione per lavorare in un altro Paese europeo. Tieni pronto il passaporto!

Se invece hai in mente una destinazione specifica, faremo il possibile per trovare un ruolo adatto a te in quella sede, se non dall’inizio, non appena se ne presenterà l’opportunità.

Posso perseguire un percorso di carriera internazionale?

Certo! Accompagniamo i Leader del futuro che lo desiderino in un percorso di carriera europeo. Idealmente la tua carriera inizia nel Paese della lingua nativa; dove andrai dopo dipende da te e dalle posizioni disponibili nei vari Paesi. Tutto ciò che devi fare è alzare la mano!

Dovrò fare esperienza in tutte le divisioni aziendali?

Non ci sono rotazioni predeterminate, e nessun percorso professionale è uguale all’altro per i nostri tirocinanti. Dove andrai dipende da te e dalle disponibilità del momento. Fai clic QUI per scoprire di più sui percorsi professionali intrapresi dai nostri Leader del futuro.
