Cloetta works with trainee programmes/internships in Sweden and the Netherlands.
In Sweden, Afrodite and Filippa recently received diplomas for their Open Innovation Training Programme at the Skåne Food Innovation Network. Afrodite conducted a strategic project on Cloetta’s possibilities to open concept stores and Filippa developed a decision model within licensing which helps to determine how our brands can be used by external parties. Both have been employed by Cloetta. About every other year, Cloetta Sweden takes in trainees in cooperation with the Skåne Food Innovation Network.
Cloetta Netherlands works closely with internships. The students are offered the opportunity to gain insight into the company and grocery retail. Cloetta sees this cooperation as a win-win situation since students gain a very good understanding of what the post in question involves while they can deliver added value to the company with their innovative approach.
There are several trainees at the dutch office in Oosterhout within Customer Marketing, Marketing, Sales, HR, Procurement and Innovation. The trainee periods range from 5-9 months. Cloetta continues to monitor the trainees after their studies and they are always one step ahead when vacancies occur. There are already a number of students who started their career at Cloetta after completing their studies.
”You are given a lot of freedom at Cloetta and there is scope for your ideas and initiatives that are really appreciated, you really are part of the team,” says Aafke, trainee Brand Management & Red Band Venco 2014, who having completed her internship successfully started to work as a junior product manager.
”Doing an internship at Cloetta is a real challenge! You are given a lot of responsibility and opportunities to learn and therefore you can show what you can do,” says Britt, trainee HR 2015, who after her internship returned to Cloetta for a summer job.
In 2016 Praneva and Niclas started their internships at Cloetta in Sweden. Read more about their experiences here.
“My first time at Cloetta has been like a bag of Polly (one of Swedens most popular chocolate nougat candy), always surprising, and you do not know what interesting project you will be involved in next, says Pranvera. – There is always a lot going on and my colleagues have engaged me in several different projects. The project varies from investigating how Cloetta’s products shall become even more environmentally friendly to testing sessions of new flavors of the pastille Läkerol.
“I have long wanted to work in the food industry. After economics studies and a couple of years in the sports and e-commerce industry, I was offered a place as a trainee at Cloetta. I thought it sounded like a good platform to start a new career, and a flying start into a rich and reputable company like Cloetta.
Depending on current positions we cooperate with various colleges and universities in the Netherlands, including Avans, Fontys, Tilburg University, Erasmus University and Wageningen University. We want to offer students opportunities and hope to also create awareness of Cloetta by offering internships.
