Sales traineeship

You have finally graduated and are now ready for new, practical challenges. As a sales trainee with Storck in Germany, you will be working on clever sales strategies and accompany strong brands such as Toffifee, Werther’s Original and merci chocolate and others on their way to the customers. At each stage of your trainee programme, you will be supported by experienced sales professionals. This allows you to grow until you are ready to take on a responsible position, and you will get to know the entire spectrum of Storck's sales activities.

Time to turn your talent for selling into a plan for the future.
Your plan: comprehensive support during every step of your career.
  • Your first stop will be 12 months in area management. You will manage a sales area and gain insights into regional sales management.
  • Next on the agenda are 6 months with the national Key Account Management department in Berlin. You will carry the responsibility for some of the day-to-day running of the business there.
  • In another 4 months of your trainee period you will expand your know-how in marketing related departments. Assignments in Research Management, Trade Marketing and/or Category Management are possible.
  • For the last 2 months you will have the choice between the departments Business Support International, Controlling or Dispposition Planning. You will acquire basic skills in these interface areas through intensive on-the-job-training.

 The sequence of the individual steps may vary. 

Your profile: passionate and willing to go the extra mile.
