Graduate traineeship

It's not always easy to get started in a professional career straight from university. We make it easier  with our trainee program. It gives career starters and graduates the opportunity to get to know BIA from different angles. The focus is on optimal preparation for a future position as a specialist or manager in the BIA Group. During the one to one-and-a-half-year traineeship, you have the opportunity to explore other departments as well. This gives you the opportunity to network at an early stage and to acquire comprehensive technology and product knowledge. At the same time, you find out for yourself whether the desired position fits with your expectations. You will find current vacant trainee positions in our job advertisements.
