What you can expect
Personal development is something we take very seriously at Philips. When you come aboard as a trainee. You will be expected to take ownership of parts of your development, like finding a mentor, teaming up with communities, and looking for opportunities for professional development to discuss with your manager.    
Your team will want to know what you think, and your ideas will be listened to, just as each employee's voice is heard equally.  How much you speak and how fast you grow is up to you.   

More from our trainees

“Having the chance to do multiple assignments within different parts of Philips is a unique opportunity to get to know the company, develop yourself in a variety of areas and meet many people throughout the organization. It is definitely a great way to start your career and develop yourself in numerous ways.” 
Michelle den Ouden

​​​​​​Management Trainee in Corporate IT 
“I would highly recommend it; it is an adventure you want to embark on. Working with multiple great teams in a multicultural environment, being part of a group of ambitious young professionals, quickly gaining experience within the company while making a lasting impact, developing as a professional and, most importantly, contributing to our goal of improving the lives of three billion people by 2030. In my opinion, there isn’t a better way to start your career.”
