You’re ambitious, want to grow on the field, and are always in to discover new people, new processes, new ways of working? Sounds like you? Look no further, because bpost wants to give you the chance to develop yourself during a two year Group Traineeship.
No prior experience is required, all we ask is that you take the opportunities we give you and you show your commitment and drive. One thing is for sure: it’ll be stimulating, educational and lots of fun.
bpost is now starting her transformation to become a high performing postal operator in Belgium and a leading international e-commerce logistics player and we need YOU to be part of this success story. Ready to take on this challenge?
What can you expect?
A two year rotational program – starting in September 2023
Are you passionate about people management, improvement of processes, change management, project management, performance or quality? You can see yourself working within the operations in our sorting centers or in our mail centers? Then you could be a match!
You will be working on three projects, of which each will take eight months. During these two years, you will be taking on different projects or different existing roles in three teams in the core of our business. You could work in one of our sorting centers where we sort-out thousands of parcels and letters on a daily base. Later one of our Mail Center Managers could guide you on the daily operations of the distribution of these parcels and letters with our mailmen. To end your traineeship on a high note, your last project will be based on your own preference. The goal will be for you to discover several places & managers and to share best practices with other trainees working in other places.
Every opportunity to make your mark and grow
Just like you, we believe in your capacities. We think of our group trainees as our future leaders, so we want to help you to become the best version of yourself. bpost brings together millions of people on a daily basis, in Belgium and beyond. Tomorrow in a slightly different way to how we did it yesterday, because the world of bpost never stops spinning. That is what your refreshing ideas and drive help achieve. And you make a huge difference for your colleagues, their jobs and our future. You can be proud of that too.
