We offer a wide variety of career opportunities

Nurturing and developing employees is essential to us, as motivated, well-trained teams are the foundation of our success. For this reason, we make targeted investments in talent management.

Today, we are able to fill 75 percent of management vacancies internally. Men and women have the same career opportunities regardless of where they come from. Our one-year trainee programme enables university graduates to embark upon their career in retail. We offer a modern, dynamic working environment in the areas of sales, marketing, purchasing, communication, HR, finance, IT and logistics. In addition to the trainee programme, employees can also join us directly or complete an internship.

Regular feedback meetings

The annual target and performance assessment enables us to actively manage and nurture our managers. This gives employees at all levels of management a clear insight into their current situation. At Coop, it’s not just line managers who assess employees, but also vice versa. An official performance review is held annually with all employees who are subject to the collective employment agreement. In these reviews too, the assessment is a reciprocal process.

Career opportunities for all

As well as fulfilling our social responsibility to university graduates and managers, each year we offer at least 50 practical training places for academically weak school-leavers.
