What does it mean to be a trainee?
Duration and ‘study start’
The training course takes two years to complete, and we take on new trainees on 1 September every year. The next class will be starting on 1 September 2017.
Salary and health insurance
You will receive a monthly salary of DKK 13,762 throughout your training period, as well as a store supplement of DKK 1,076 per month. If you do particularly well, you may also start earning commission after six months. At the same time, you will be covered by the TDC Group’s excellent health insurance.
Number of trainees
In 2017, we will be taking on a total of 38 store trainees all over Denmark. Choose the store you would prefer to train at when submitting your application.
To apply, you must have completed one of the following Danish upper secondary education programmes – HG2, HGV, HHX or HGS. In addition, you must have completed specific subjects at a high academic level:
Time at school
Your ‘school time’ consists of ten one-week modules, which are taught at Niels Brock Business College in Copenhagen, or at Aarhus Business College. Here, you will also have the opportunity to build up a network with the other sales trainees. You will be housed in halls of residence and receive all meals during your stay.
The course of education concludes with a written exam, which you will then have to defend orally in June 2018. You will also be examined in the academy module ‘Sales optimisation’.
As a store trainee, you will be expected to complete a 37-hour working week in the store opening hours.
Advice about your application
- Bear in mind that your application is the first impression you present to us. If you make a special effort with your application, you will improve your chances of being invited in for an interview. Here are some tips and hints to help you get off to a good start:
Keep your application short and straightforward – ideally, no more than a page.
Tell us briefly why you are the perfect person to join our organisation as a trainee.
Explain how your experience and qualifications match the position of store trainee.
Make sure to correct any spelling mistakes in your application – have someone else check it, for example.
Always attach your CV, and make sure that it is laid out appropriately. A good CV starts with all your personal data: name, address, phone number, etc. Then you should provide a detailed description of your education followed by an overview of your experience from previous jobs, starting with your most recent position. Write dates for all entries, and make sure there are no gaps in the years listed in your CV. Make sure to include any time you have spent travelling or off work for any other reason. Finally, you can choose to mention your language skills and your level of IT literacy. Finish up with a short section about your leisure interests.
It is a good idea to enclose documentation – exam certificates, references and the like.
