EF360 Global Management Trainee

EF Education first

EF360 Global Management Trainee Program 

Locations and time frame: 1 year based in London, Zurich or Lucerne.

About the program  

We’re looking for exceptional graduates with 360 degrees of talent and vision to be part of our highly selective one-year global management trainee program. The EF360 Global Management Trainees will become the future generation of leaders to help EF continue its rapid worldwide growth. 

The job will be demanding, but extremely rewarding. If you have an entrepreneurial and international mindset, thrive in a fast-paced environment, are passionate about driving initiatives, and aren’t deterred by jetlag, this program is for you.

The Role 

It is as much a mission as it is a job. You will assist a senior EF executive who will be your mentor and manager while supporting you throughout the program. Your tasks will be varied and unique. You could be asked to propose a flashmob for a viral marketing campaign, analyze data to launch a product in a new market, or be a production assistant at a video shoot. No assignment is too big or too small for an EF360. 

As a European applicant, you will be based in one of EF’s European headquarters; London, Zurich or Lucerne, while travelling both domestically and internationally. You will participate in interactive summits where you will connect with other EF360s and learn more about EF’s products and our position as the world leader in international education.

The role starts in summer or early fall of 2021.
