    Management Traineeship Finance - September 2022

    L’Oréal Management Trainee Finance

    is one of the most innovative and digitally driven FMCG companies, striving to bring beauty to people around the world by innovating and creating products that meet the infinite diversity of our consumer’s needs. And we want you to help us reach this goal.

    The Benelux Management Trainee Program

    Our Benelux Management Trainee Program is composed of two 6-month rotations that are flexible to match your needs and ambitions yet ensure that you will get to know the broad picture of L’Oréal in the Benelux. During the 12-month program, you will discover our various business units as well as take on tasks in different functions.

    For each rotation, you will be given a specific project with performance objectives and direct support from your manager and HR. You will rapidly build a wide and strong network within the company aside from becoming part of the Benelux Management Trainee community. Within this program you need to adapt to fast-paced environments and different ways of working in a short time frame. To succeed you will need to keep in mind that you play the main part in your own success and future career steps within the L’Oréal Group. Entrepreneurial spirit is key!

    MT program – Finance

    Starting September 1st, 2022, our next Finance Management Trainee will embark on the following two missions:

    • The first 6 months assignment will let you explore the Benelux Corporate Finance team, where you will:

    o Be a valuable sparring partner to the internal stakeholders (e.g. Commercial Director, Product Manager, Business Developers, etc.), on the basis of thorough analyses

    o Draw up the monthly reports and KPIs for the various parts of the division

    o Develop (and where possible improve) the reporting to local and international management

    • In the second 6 months assignment, you will work on various projects including a focus on one of our biggest cost position “Advertising & Promotion”, revisiting the planning and follow-up process for all our Divisions, together with our Finance Transformation Manager.

    With the skills & network you build during this trainee program the aim is that you will take on a challenging permanent position within the Finance community, depending on your strengths and career aspirations.
