Recognize yourself!

Would you like to contribute to a society in which everything and everyone is connected in real time? In which communication systems facilitate innovation, cooperation, freedom and solutions that know no boundaries? Are you the talent that makes pioneering technology and services accessible to customers? If so, an ORMIT & Ericsson Business and Technology Traineeship is perfect for you!

For the ORMIT & Ericsson Business and Technology Traineeship, we are looking for driven management talent who can take the possibilities of the latest technology and match them with the needs of Ericsson's customers. You know how to exploit the commercial potential of Ericsson's high-tech innovations. You are keen to immerse yourself in the latest developments in both technology and the market. You are able to spot opportunities and respond skilfully to them by getting your colleagues and customers on board. It does not end with ideas. Together with your project team, you also ensure that they are implemented and that you meet the customer's high expectations. You are pragmatic and flexible in your approach and think in terms of opportunities and possibilities. In order to realise the challenging assignments at Ericsson and get the most out of yourself, you will undergo an intensive development programme at ORMIT. This programme is aimed at your professional as well as your personal development.

Create impact

Ericsson is a prominent company in information and communication technology (ICT) for telecoms and service providers. Ericsson is leading this B2B market with 5G technology. In addition, it is essential to meet customer demands optimally. Services and technologies must be easy to use, adaptable and scalable. This is where outstanding talent like you comes in. At Ericsson Netherlands, you will be dedicated to making sure that telecoms operators and service providers can serve their business and their customer base and grow them in a safe manner.

Based on your background and ambitions we will make the best possible match with challenging assignments at Ericsson. These assignments are designed to get you acquainted with the Ericsson organisation and services across the organisation and to allow you to make an impact. In the span of two years you will complete three assignments, each of which will take approximately eight months. You will rotate within three departments at Ericsson Netherlands: your assignments will be in a key account (Sales), Product & Software Development and Customer Projects/Digital Services. Over the course of the traineeship, the complexity and responsibility of these assignments will increase significantly. After starting out as a participant in a project group, you will soon advance to project leader and subsequently to complex projects in which change management plays a key role. You will take your insights and innovative ideas with you from department to department. You will also be given space to apply your creative ideas, simplify work processes and introduce new ways of working and project management.
