Modular Structure

Our two-year graduate trainee program is structured into three modules, which all focus on you and your personal & professional development.

Module 1: In the first six months, you network with business experts to understand the core activities of the oil business. You will work at one of our Oiltanking Terminals, experience the business, and gain insight into the role of important functions at our headquarters.

Module 2: A twelve-month module deep-dive into your specialisation – e.g. Finance & Accounting, HR, Project Management or Engineering – as you work alongside world-class experts in the industry. They will challenge your way of thinking and you will grow through challenging work in an ever-changing environment.

Module 3: The final six months of the program give you an opportunity to broaden your horizon while moving to a different country or even continent. Here, you will experience a new culture and will gain an even deeper understanding of the complexity underlying a global company’s work.

The graduate trainee program will be supplemented throughout with seminars and training sessions on specific business topics to further advance your personal development. During this two-year journey you will have the personal support of a mentor as we jointly lay the foundations for your future in energy & logistics.
