About our Finance Traineeship

As a finance trainee at FrieslandCampina you will constantly be challenged. In a two-year program you will get the opportunity to work on two assignments within different areas of finance. On the one hand, you can work in our financial shared services, located in Budapest and Kuala Lumpur, in which operational financial activities are being performed. On the other hand, you will have the possibility to work in a role in which you discover factors driving the business and explore in which direction the company should go to create more value. 

This is your chance to develop yourself in a broader field and help decide where you want to end up in our company. As a corporate trainee you therefore are proactive and eager to learn and develop.

Robin, Finance Trainee

“Incredibly, FrieslandCampina reaches remote areas worldwide with its nutritional and affordable products. During my Traineeship I collaborated with the local finance team of Nigeria to calculate the feasibility of setting up a cow breeding centre in West Africa. It is fantastic that FrieslandCampina strives for better nutrition for the world, and it makes me proud to contribute to projects that achieve a better world.” Robin Kiemeneij, Finance Trainee FrieslandCampina

Frederique, Finance Trainee

 “What I really liked about starting the Finance Traineeship at FrieslandCampina, is that fact that my team directly gave me quite some responsibilities at the start of my career. Even though I just graduated from University, they took my perspective seriously and trusted me fully in making decisions.”

Examples of assignments


Commercial Controller 
As a commercial controller you will have two roles. First, you have the financial perspective, where FrieslandCampina expects you to be in control of the financials. This means understanding everything related to finance such as, the costs, profits, KPI's, cash flows, balance posts, overdues and translating this to understandable insights. Second, as commercial controller you work with marketing and sales departments on a daily basis. In this role, you are expected to be the financial business partner by providing strong financial insights, but also to challenge your marketing and sales colleagues to make the right decisions. The combination of these two parts makes it a diverse, analytical and challenging role.

Corporate Treasury 
In the Corporate Treasury role, you work on day-to-day Treasury-related activities like cash and FX management while also playing a role in shaping strategic projects. In the latter, you get the opportunity to help implement processes and policies such as FX Hedging and Dividend Cycle Planning while also being able to take part in negotiations with banks and other external stakeholders.
