Frequently Asked Questions

What exactly does a Trainee do? What kinds of benefits do we offer? Our FAQ section answers some of the most burning questions we get each year from students.

What makes for a good application?

A good application is carefully drafted, clear and concise. Your application letter should not be more than just one page long, and it should give us a clear indication of what motivates you and whether you are suited for the open position. Please remember to enclose a well-structured CV, any appendices we may require (e.g. a transcript of your studies) and any other additional materials (a video perhaps).

Work-life Balance and Well-being

How long are your trainee programmes?

A new Junior Trainee will always first be offered a six-month contract. After the first six months, we will review the situation together with the trainee and proceed accordingly. The majority of our Junior Trainees will, however, stay on for another six-month period (and some for even longer). Our KM Trainees are offered a contract that lasts for approximately 12 months. Our Associate Trainee programmes last for six months.
