BEYOND BORDERS is an 18-month program with a six-month overseas placement, either in another group company or at our global headquarters in Hamburg, Germany.

Gateway to the top.
We are looking for qualified university graduates who are seeking a career in the areas of Sales, Marketing, Human Resources, Supply Chain Management, Finance & Controlling or Information Technology. As a graduate trainee, BEYOND BORDERS offers you three to four assignments plus one placement of choice towards the end of the program.

The 360 degree program.
The opportunity to gain experience beyond your own professional expertise is what makes BEYOND BORDERS unique: our future international managers have to understand the interaction of the group's different divisions. International experience, working with colleagues from a number of countries, and Intercultural Awareness workshops will help to expand your horizons, and sharpen your perception of cultural differences which is important with regard to working for an international company that is close to people all over the world.

Focusing on you.
From the very beginning, BEYOND BORDERS advances not only your professional but also your personal skills. You will receive regular feedback and will be able to call upon the support of your own personal mentor – an experienced senior manager.


Calculation or creativity? Vision or pragmatism? Head or heart? We are looking for people who do not consider these terms as contradictory, people who are both capable of thinking ahead and far-sighted.
Are you the right person for us?
If you recently have completed your studies in good time and with outstanding results, if you already have gained some practical experience in your target area of business, if your people skills are as well developed as your drive for success, if you are prepared to relocate around the world in pursuit of an international career - we'd like to meet you.
Are we the right company for you?
BEYOND BORDERS is about people who show initiative and want to assume responsibility early, people with an eye for cultural distinctions who, next to their professionalism, provide one thing above all – character.
