The fourth Build on Uponor: International Trainee Programme will start mid-January 2018. Uponor has had Trainee programmes since 2011, and they have been very successful and well-liked. Many of the participants are still working for Uponor, now in permanent positions.

Build on Uponor: International Trainee Programme offers the trainees the option of choosing between two different tracks – technical and commercial. In the technical track, you will get a holistic insight into the Supply Chain or Technology Development organisation. In the commercial track you will develop your business understanding by working in different functions such as Sales and Marketing, Offering, Finance or Human Resources.

During the programme, you will work in four different projects, where you will gather the needed information, connect with the key people in the organisation, do the analysis and present your findings. As this is an international programme, one of the four projects will be abroad, and you must therefore be willing to spend 6 months in another country. This will enhance your cross-cultural understanding and give you valuable experience for an international career. You will join the trainee network and a plan will be devised for your personal learning and development.
