Trainee Programs

Exciting tasks and intensive personal support: This is precisely what LANXESS offers qualified university graduates in subject-related training programs. Over a period of 18 months you work through different departments, actively shaping the program as you go with optional assignments. You start by learning about the specialty chemicals business on a work shadowing assignment at one of our production facilities. The program also includes a foreign assignment as well as work on international projects.

Rest assured that you will be given support: An experienced manager will act as mentor for all new challenges. You will also be taking part regularly in further training courses along with your trainee group. As such, we promote and develop your strengths and interests, preparing you optimally to assume specialist and management responsibilities in the future.
