The Management Trainee Programme is an opportunity to learn and work with the professionals who contribute to the Group's success every day.
The Management Trainee Programme is
a unique opportunity to join the world of the Jerónimo Martins
Group. We provide a whole year of experiences, learning and growth
as well as an opportunity to learn and work with the professionals
who contribute to the Group's success every day.
We make sure that our Trainees are
well prepared for their future challenges by knowing and
understanding not only the Group, its Companies and functions, but
also the context in which we operate.
The development programme has been built in such a way as to
ensure the balance between the general comprehension of key
business concepts relevant to our reality and the development of
practical skills through hands-on practical experience on various
levels within our organisation.
The programme starts in July every year and consists of two
distinct parts that combined last for about a year.
General Business Training
In this part, the Trainees as a group are introduced to the
principles of our business and get to know about the companies and
their respective functions. The highlight is then on the on-the-job
training in our Operations (Stores), as well as on Logistics. The
Trainees not only develop the basic technical knowledge that is
essential for our business, but are also given the opportunity of
experiencing and understanding our core-business. Once they have a
general overview of the Group´s structure and functions, the
Trainees are able to start defining their personal vision of career
development within the Group.
Individual Function Training
Considering the long-term development goals defined for each of the
Trainees, after a few months, Trainees are assigned to specific
departments (functions) and their development continues in a more
individual manner. In this part, they develop knowledge and
competences specific to the business and functional area in which
they work. Upon completion of the individual training, the Trainees
may continue in the same functional area or change, depending on
the defined goals and their individual performance, as well as on
the business needs.
MEANS OF DEVELOPMENT
All Trainees are hired with the
objective of remaining in the Jerónimo Martins Group after the
programme and they are provided with all the necessary means and
support to meet our performance standards. We ensure that Trainees
have adequate preparation for their future challenges through the
application of multiple development practices.
Learning by working across different functions. Our Trainees
especially value the training in our stores. The understanding of
our business from a shop-floor perspective that they acquire in the
beginning, turns out to be very useful in their future
We ensure that Trainees are provided with all the relevant
knowledge and skills that will then be required from them in later
stages of their development. The Trainees go through series of
trainings with our internal trainers, thereby gaining not only
specific industry-related knowledge, but also soft-skills required
in today's workplace.
Our Managers (including top executives) and functional experts
deliver a series of exclusive presentations and workshops allowing
Trainees to broaden their horizons and participate in challenging
discussions about the future of our business.
The Trainees go through an array of individual and team assignments
in which they tackle the emerging business challenges, provide
insight into defined topics or perform assessments of particular
aspects of our organisation.
Our Trainees not only receive regular and individual feedback to
build their self-awareness, but are also accompanied by our Human
Resources team in the process of defining their career goals and
how to achieve them.
We make sure that our Trainees are assigned to future-oriented
functions, high-performing teams and Managers. On many occasions,
Trainees are working with former fellow Trainees who might have
joined the Company many years ago, but never lost the Trainee
spirit and understand what it takes to succeed.
It should be emphasized that focus on development is not limited to
the duration of the programme and goes well beyond it. Development
of Management Trainees is seen from a long-term perspective.
Regular follow-up meetings are held to ensure the optimal
development of Trainees and the best allocation of their potential
within our organisation.
