What college grades do I need to apply?
These roles are only intended for higher education graduates with a master’s or bachelor’s degree.
How do I apply?
At times when trainee jobs are being advertised, you can apply using the online application form.
What should I do if I want to upload more files with my application than there are upload fields on the application form?
Unfortunately, it is not possible to send us a larger number of files than the upload fields available. The best approach is to collect all your documents into a single PDF document and send this to us.
I am currently still completing the final part of my course. Can I still apply?
If your course finishes before the end of September, you are welcome to apply. Please send us a certificate of your current grades up to now, then simply send us your final grades when you receive them.
The trainee programme is delivered at several different locations. Do I need to move house each time?
No, your main location for the trainee programme will be our headquarters in Berlin. All placements outside Berlin are temporary and you will be assisted by 50Hertz in finding temporary accommodation.
How long does the trainee programme last?
The trainee programme covers 24 months and begins on 1 October.
How many placements will I have during the trainee course?
The training schedule is tailored for each trainee. Each trainee placement is usually for three to four months, and in some, you may be offered a shorter placement.
Will I get a job at the end of the trainee programme?
We explicitly aim to offer a permanent job after the successful completion of the trainee programme.
