Trainees Trainees

After my 18-month traineeship period in the area of finance and controlling, I have been am working as an investment controller at the Diehl hHeadquarters in Nuremberg since March 2022. I studied Global Business Management in Augsburg and Financial Management at the University of Hohenheim. When I started my career, I made a conscious decision to work for a medium-sized company because it is important to me to have a family-like corporate atmosphere within which there is room for creativity. The opportunities for further development as a trainee at Diehl are great. The program is individual and there are many exciting, varied projects and tasks. You can always pick up on loose ends and get involved.

Another highlight are the trainee meetings with trainings on soft skills and regular feedback rounds. Through my different stages, which took me to almost all corporate dievisions - I was at Metering in Nuremberg, Aviation in Hamburg, Controls and finally at Metall - I got to know many new colleagues and was able to build a network that also helps me in my current positionjob. After my Master's degree, I was a research assistant at the Chair for of Controlling for six months. However, I then decided to go into practice - and my choice would always again be the trainee program at Diehl again!
