Rijk Zwaan Young Professionals In-house Day

Rijk Zwaan Young Professionals In-house Day

Rijk Zwaan is a fast-growing family-owned company that puts people first. We not only have a unique company culture and sustainable products, but we are also active in 30 different countries and continuously invest in research and development. During our Young Professionals In-house Day on Thursday March 28, 2019 you will have the chance to experience the dynamism of Rijk Zwaan for yourself, plus we will be explaining more about our Young Professionals programme. The application deadline is March 15.

What can you expect on the day?
We regard the Young Professionals In-house Day as a two-way opportunity – for you to get to know Rijk Zwaan, and for us to get to know you. Therefore, you can expect plenty of interaction. In addition to attending various presentations and taking a tour of the company, you will also set to work on a practical case, applying your knowledge and ideas in a team along with several other candidates. By the end of the day you have learned a lot about Rijk Zwaan and what it would be like to work at our company. The Young Professionals In-house Day is held at Rijk Zwaan’s headquarters in De Lier. The day starts at 12.00 noon with a buffet lunch and concludes with network drinks at 17.30 h.
We welcome applications for the In-house Day from young professionals with:

  • A bachelor’s or master’s degree (or close to graduating) in subjects such as Business Administration, Engineering Management, Supply Chain Management, Commercial Economics or Marketing. We are open to people from all backgrounds.
  • A maximum of three years’ professional experience
  • An interest in our market and approach

Additionally, you have completed your degree quickly (or will soon do so), you have pursued a range of extracurricular activities and/or you have gained experience abroad. We consider it important that you have lots of drive and initiative, and that you are keen to learn more about the plant breeding industry.
