The Young Professionals Programme
At Rijk Zwaan we are looking for ambitious, proactive people in the early stage of their career who are keen to develop in one of our traineeships. You can apply for the traineeship in project & process management, supply chain, marketing or R&D. The content will give you a thorough knowledge of Rijk Zwaan and the various disciplines in our breeding company. After you have completed the first three years in the job, depending on your development and experience, you will then move to the next job. In the process you will determine your own development path jointly with the HR Advisor. We will look particularly at what you are good at and how you can provide the greatest added value for Rijk Zwaan. We will then place you accordingly. For example, you could progress to become an executive or project manager. At Rijk Zwaan we believe it is important that the job suits you well.
