Can employees move between business areas and/or to a different country?

Yes – you can do both of these things. In fact, Henkel’s “Triple Two” philosophy actually promotes it by allowing you to work in two different roles, in two different business areas and in two different countries. And even more if you want to, because we believe that it’s good for your personal development and improves your understanding of Henkel as a global company.



In what country will my first job be?

In most cases, your first job will be in your home country. But if you want to move to a Henkel location in another country there may be opportunities – after all, Henkel is represented all around the globe.



Does Henkel offer trainee programs for graduates?

Yes, there are two interesting programs at our headquarter in Düsseldorf, Germany designed for graduates. First, the 24-months finance trainee in corporate internal audit (Job ID 4707de) is a great opportunity to start a career in finance.
Second, the talent onboarding program Beauty Care (Job ID 4228de) teaches graduates everything that is necessary to have a lasting successful career in marketing and sales.
In other fields, graduates take a full-time position. They have full responsibility from the first day and are often involved in international tasks and projects. In addition, through our system of job rotation and our “Triple Two” philosophy there are even more exciting tasks and great prospects for personal development at home and abroad.
