About the programme

The Metro Potentials management trainee programme is a two year programme designed for our METRO Cash & Carry countries. It is divided into 5 training blocks that are between three and six months long and take place either in the trainee’s home country or abroad.

The programme fast-tracks ambitious master graduates and talented young professionals to a management career in international wholesale. The trainees benefit from ‘on-the-job’ training and ‘off-the-job’ learning modules such as ‘knowledge & skills’ and ‘leadership behavior’.

During every training block you will take responsibility for one or more projects which will contribute to the development and progress of the business as well as yourself. Every trainee will be supported by a local mentor (country board member).  

Our aim is to develop your knowledge and skills over the two years so that you are prepared to manage a team of your own.
