KION Group's new management trainee program seeks young talent

- New program has six vacancies

- Strong international focus and a range of specialized disciplines

Frankfurt, December 18, 2018 - The KION Group is offering graduates with a master's degree an attractive start to their careers with its new management trainee program. The customized training programs in various business areas are set to begin October 1, 2019. The traineeships in Intralogistics, Controlling, Product Management, and Procurement include a multifaceted 18-month curriculum with a strong international focus within the global KION Group. Participants will quickly assume responsibility in their own specialist area and will become familiar with the various tasks and most important interfaces of the multi-brand Group.

Four of the traineeships will be run by the various operating units within the KION Group. The Intralogistics program will be located at Linde Material Handling in Aschaffenburg, Germany, and one Controlling program will be run out of STILL in Hamburg, Germany. Another placement is planned at KION APAC (Asia-Pacific) in Xiamen, China, and will focus on Product Management. The traineeship for Procurement (within the overarching internal function of the KION Chief Technology Officer) will be based in Aschaffenburg, Germany, and another one in Controlling (at KION Group AG) will be based at the company's Frankfurt headquarters. A further placement will be established at the Dematic operating unit during 2019.

All traineeships are divided into four blocks lasting up to five months; the third block is a 5-month placement at an international location. It will give management trainees an opportunity to quickly get to know other geographies and broaden their horizons. Joint 5-day workshops will be held at the beginning and half-way point of the program, focusing on basic KION knowledge, methodological training and networking.

"We are actively driving forward the search for motivated and capable young managers through our management trainee program," says Anke Groth, CFO and Labor Relations Director at the KION Group. "We offer them the perfect environment to unleash their potential and realize their own ideas, yet we are also actively recruiting people with whom we want to shape the future of intralogistics." In addition to exceptional career opportunities and assorted responsibilities in a fast-moving, future-focused industry, management trainees can look forward to working in a friendly team and to attractive remuneration.

The application process is conducted entirely in English and involves four stages: submission of application documents, a telephone interview, an online cognitive skills test and an assessment center. Further information on the management trainee program and the application process is available on the KION Group website: www.kiongroup.com
