Trainee Program in Finance

In the Finance trainee program at Evonik, you will have the opportunity to look at the topic from different perspectives and take on real responsibilities.

Are you passionate about finance, controlling or accounting and looking for an exciting opportunity to contribute your knowledge and creative ideas to our company without being tied to a specific position? 

Over a period of 18 months, you will gain an insight into the global financial world of Evonik Industries AG and get to know the work processes of an international company by working at various locations. 

We offer you 

  • Flexibility 
  • Further training opportunities 
  • Mentoring 
  • International experience 

From your first day on the job, you will have the opportunity to expand your network and lay the foundation for your career in controlling and finance! In addition, you will develop your professional and methodological skills both on and off the job through seminars and training, such as project management or presentation training. You will also have the opportunity to work on a project related to social and/or sustainability issues. These activities are carried out together with other Evonik trainees. 

An international assignment is also part of the program. 

We look forward to showing you what drives us and are excited about the path we can take together.
