FAQ

  • How does the Green Mobility Trainee program work?

    What distinguishes the trainee program from other trainee programs out there is that. It is a collaborative project of multiple companies. As part of this collaboration, you will be offered participation in sustainability projects at the selected companies. The home base, i.e., where your contract and other administration topics will be handled, is the Lufthansa Innovation Hub (LIH). We have applied the shared economy approach to the trainee program, so there is no ‘owner’ of a trainee. The LIH acts as a host and assigns you to a project with a company of your choice for six months. The Trainee Program runs for 24 months, so overall you have the opportunity to collaborate with a maximum of four different companies over the course of the traineeship.

  • How many companies participate and what does this collaborative approach mean for me and my traineeship?

    Five companies participate in the program. All participating companies submit exiting projects that are linked to Sustainability efforts they are currently pursuing. The LIH will collect these projects and will share with you the available options in advance.

  • Can I choose my projects?

    Each trainee will get the chance to review all submitted projects a six to eight weeks before the starting period of new projects. You can then indicate your three priorities for each assignment period. We will guarantee that you get your priority project at least once. For the other two projects we will try our best to consider your priorities in coordination with the companies, however, we cannot guarantee you will receive all your priorities. However, from our experience we could always find a good solution for all parties involved.

  • What will I earn during the trainee program?

    The annual salary is 48.000€/year

  • How many vacation days will I have, and can I choose my vacation without any limitations?

    You will receive an annual leave of 24 days per year. From our experience, vacation is best taken between project periods, to ensure easy transition at the end or before the start of each project.

  • Is there a guarantee of employment after the program?

    Unfortunately, there is no contractual guarantee. However, since you work very closely with many companies, you have a greater chance that offers will be made following your projects.

  • Who can apply for the program?

    Basically, anyone with a Master's degree. It is important that you have a master's degree certificate at the beginning of the program. Until then, a confirmation from the university about your study progress is sufficient.

  • What is the application process for the Green Mobility Traineeship?

    You will need to complete an online assessment. This is a standard intelligence test. You can find examples of the task types on the be-lufthansa.de website.

  • When will I be informed about the online test result?

    We will wait until all applicants have taken the online test and then get back to by 23 November 2021 with an invitation to the video interview if the online assessment was successful. By 26 November 2021 at the latest, everyone who participates in the video interviews will have received invitations.

  • How can I prepare for the video interview?

    The goal is to get to know each other. Give us insights into who are you as a person and into your motivation why the traineeship is exactly what you want to do. Naturally, we also want to give you the opportunity to get to know the program and the different companies so feel free to bring in your own questions. You will receive information prior to the interview with more details about the program and the company representatives you will talk to.

  • How can I prepare for the selection day?

    We want to get to know you and we want you to get to know us on that day. The best way to get to know us is to tell us authentically who you are. We are not interested in what is on your CV, but in the person behind it. Do you have special interests, are there topics you're passionate about, do you have certain attitudes and convictions, what inspires you? You are most convincing when you know yourself well.

  • Which company decides in the end who is accepted from the applicants?

    All participating companies have the opportunity to participate in all stages of the application process. On the selection day itself, all of them are represented and decide together which Trainees will be accepted.
