Connect Cultures: the new Audi trainee program

Audi is increasingly attracting international academic talent for its team: The company is now expanding its offer for graduates with the addition of a new, English‑language trainee program with the title Connect Cultures. Graduates of international universities are the target group and they can apply as of today at “The Audi family is at home all over the world,” said Catrin Behres, head of the young talent programs at AUDI AG. “So we want to generate enthusiasm to work at Audi amongst young people from all over the world. With their knowledge, their background and their ideas, these talented young people will add completely new facets to our topics for the future.”

The Connect Cultures twelve-month trainee program starts in July 2018. It supplements the Change Perspectives graduate program for generalists and the Collect Expertise specialist trainee program, which is aimed at graduates and young experts with up to two years of work experience. All programs focus on technical areas but are open for graduates with all study backgrounds. The goal is to give the trainees insights into various parts of the company and to ensure they are optimally networked within the Audi Group. By means of job rotation, especially at important interfaces, the company is preparing the participants intensively for their later jobs. In addition, the young academics can participate in a multifaceted support program, in which for example they plan projects together, get involved in social initiatives and attend impulse presentations. Audi takes on all trainees into full employment after they have completed the program.
