PERSPECTIVES - The Bertelsmann Management Associate Program

Start your career as a Management Associate* at Arvato – working right alongside managerial staff

From your very first day as a Management Associate*, you will work for an experienced manager within one of our business units. You will work together with management staff to shape processes and workflows, while gaining hands-on experience of the legwork and deliberation involved in making important decisions. You will be implementing demanding projects independently and using your innovative ideas to assist your manager with the strategic and operational development of the business segment.

How does this differ from a trainee program? On this program, you will always be working at the same level as managerial staff. The "Perspectives" program, in which management associates from Arvato SCS also participate, enables participants to grow and develop quickly and to progress in great strides. “Perspectives” gives you access to a large network and you will very quickly be able to expand this network even further. By regularly attending events and training sessions, you will get to know other Management Associates from all of the business divisions. You will be enhancing your own profile and constantly building on your personal development, your skills and your knowledge.
