Graduate Trainee, Germany

 
 

If you are a versatile, interested and open person with an international outlook who enjoys teamwork, Smurfit Kappa is the right company for you!

 
 

 

What have been your most rewarding moments at Smurfit Kappa?

It is always rewarding if I can solve a problem or answer a colleague´s question thanks to what I have learned in my  trainee period. When I started to work for Smurfit Kappa eight months ago, I almost didn´t know anything about packaging and corrugated – and now I do know quite a bit! Of course there is still a lot to learn, but the trainee program has given me a solid background of knowledge that is useful every day.

What do you enjoy most about your job at Smurfit Kappa?

What I enjoy most is the variety. Every day is different, every Smurfit Kappa plant is different, every customer is different… I never get bored and I constantly learn new things. I also like the fact that I travel so much. I have worked at several European plants so far which has given me a lot of valuable experience.

What competencies do you think are key to succeed in your current role?

I think versatility is the most important quality one needs for a career at Smurfit Kappa. Working with colleagues in different plants, different countries and a very diverse customer base requires the ability to adapt quickly and understand processes easily. For a sales job, team-working skills are also crucial. A lot of the daily work routine requires coordination work with national or international colleagues, so one should enjoy that.

What advice would you give someone considering joining Smurfit Kappa?

If you are a versatile, interested and open person with an international outlook who enjoys teamwork, Smurfit Kappa is the right company for you!
