Personal Highlights

  • Foreign assignment
  • Personal and professional qualifications
  • Appreciation

A year ago, I completed my master’s degree and due to a career network scholarship, I became aware of Deutsche Leasing as an employer. My first contact with them was very friendly, open and promising. The application process was also clear and welcoming. The interviews and the assessment centre were not purely for screening; it was more that they gave an opportunity for both parties to get to know each other. Numerous managers from throughout the company and also a member of the Management Board were present at this early stage in the process, and were happy to answer my questions. This gave me a good insight into the company, the corporate culture, the conditions and the working atmosphere.
This good impression was reinforced during the onboarding phase, in which a comprehensive entry programme was provided to the trainees for the new assignment. This facilitated us getting to know each other, as well as being practical preparation on numerous levels.
The different stations in the trainee programme were organised and coordinated very well. In the departments I worked in, I was always welcomed with open arms and integrated quickly as a team member with responsibilities. I was also able to work on my personal qualifications continuously. Various professional trainings, seminars, team-building measures, network events and other measures were offered to complement the programme.
My personal highlight was the two-month assignment in a European subsidiary. In accordance with my preference, I went to Vienna in Austria. I was also accepted quickly onto the team there and was able to make a valuable contribution in customer contact, in risk decision
and with my own projects. The common language was a particular advantage, as this made it possible for me to be completely integrated into the daily business.
The last year helped me tremendously professionally, methodologically and personally, and gave me a wealth of experience and many great contacts. Of course, I also had a lot of fun during my time as a trainee.
The trainee programme suited me very well with its high practical relevance and it helped me to find my desired position within the company.

Deutsche Leasing offers comprehensive trainee programmes with different focuses.
