Vanderlande Graduate Traineeship

The Vanderlande Graduate Traineeship is the ideal start to your career and an excellent way to get to know the company. It will also put you on the fast track to global opportunities. Over the course of two to three years, you will take on three interesting and prestigious positions within Vanderlande, each lasting approximately 6 to 18 months. Our experience indicates that this timeframe provides trainees with the optimal learning curve.

After this pressure cooker of accelerated learning and gaining valuable experience, you will take on the position of Project Leader or Project Manager. In these roles, you will lead complex projects in international multidisciplinary teams for key customers in the airport, warehousing and parcel markets.

In order to prepare for an all-round leadership role, you will be immersed in exciting and challenging trainee roles, for example in engineering, R&D (research and development) and life-cycle services. You will also spend a significant part of your traineeship participating in Vanderlande’s international and dynamic projects.


Your personal development plays a key role in the traineeship, and you will receive intensive personal and content-related training, both on and off the job. To ensure that you are fully supported, we’ll offer you a variety of comprehensive training courses in the fields of project- and cross-cultural management, leadership and communication. In addition, you will get the opportunity to learn and share experiences with fellow trainees, by means of peer group coaching.

During the traineeship, you can always count on the support of your talent development coach and assigned senior manager. This will help you to reach your full potential and set you on the path to achieving your long-term career goals.

Selection profile

To be eligible, you must have obtained a relevant technical master’s degree within the last year, or will do so in the next few months. If you recognise yourself in the following profile, please prepare an extensive cover letter in which you detail how and why you meet the selection criteria. The ideal candidate will be:

  • a smart self-starter with an entrepreneurial spirit
  • self-reflective and able to make conscious choices to stimulate personal development
  • an empathetic team player with excellent communication skills
  • driven to succeed, eager to improve every day and demonstrate a desire to be challenged.

Alongside this, we are looking for individuals who are fluent in English, have an international mindset and are willing to travel, and/or stay abroad for lengthy periods of time.

Selection procedure

Please upload your cover letter, a recent resume and the list of grades from your master’s degree before 5 May. We will evaluate all applications and let you know within two weeks after the registration deadline if you will be invited to our trainee recruitment day. Please note that the selection procedure comprises an assessment.

The trainee recruitment day is scheduled 6 June at Vanderlande in Veghel. You will be invited for several job interviews, a business case and a guided tour in our Innovation Center where you will see our installations up close and personal. Lunch will be provided, of course.

On 7 June, we will inform you on the results of the trainee recruitment day - and hopefully welcome you as our new colleague.
