Spirit of Adventure

What will the world be like tomorrow?

Being successful means thinking ahead on a global scale, leading with motivation and having the ability to translate ideas into practice. Our Holtzbrinck Campus supports you in your professional development and helps reveal your true potential. More/Less

Holtzbrinck Campus – our academy for further education

The world of media is in a fascinating process of change which offers us opportunities and, at the same time, places demands on us. Our classroom and online training courses prepare you systematically for current and future needs.

Develop your skills in areas such as management & leadership, marketing & sales, and IT & technology.

The Holtzbrinck Development Programmes

Our high-quality certified development programmes are designed in a modular format and offer support to trainees, young potentials, managers and professionals in developing their skills in all areas of competence.

They provide a sound basis for preparing yourself to take on more and more advanced responsibilities in our Group.

International prospects and changing jobs throughout the Group

Our Group offers a broad spectrum of opportunities for professional development and we value your national or international career within our group, both in your current business area and beyond.

What characterises exemplary leadership?

We are looking for experts and managers who know the answer to this question and can translate the technical and human aspects into practice – with empathy and energy.

Exemplary leadership means taking your responsibility seriously – and acting accordingly – towards employees and the company but also yourself and others in general.

We, as an employer, also have responsibility. We create scope for organisational freedom, and, by providing sound training, we ensure that you are able to meet your own standards and realise your potential across positions, companies and national borders.

What do you want to achieve?

You have completed your studies with flying colours. Now you have numerous paths to choose from to show the world just what you can and want to achieve. Only you can decide which one is right for you – we offer you a variety of opportunities.

Whether you prefer to choose one of the challenging programmes described below or accept a position right from the start: we offer you continuing professional development with good prospects for the future.

In our company, you will take on challenging tasks, work independently on projects and develop innovative concepts.

Direct entry

Are you filled with enthusiasm and creative drive? Do you want to experience and help to shape the future of media first hand? Do you want to take on responsibility right away – preferably tomorrow? With the support of experienced colleagues, you will gain practical knowledge »on the job« and expand your skills every day.

Programmes

Would you like to gain important skills building on your university degree? If so, we recommend one of our challenging career entry programmes.

Online Marketing Trainee Programme

Online marketing is an interesting field for quick, creative minds. In this programme, you work on diverse and challenging projects while improving your methodological skills and gaining sound know-how in all relevant online marketing disciplines simultaneously. 

Upon completion of the programme, you will receive a certificate granted in cooperation with Steinbeis University of Applied Sciences in Berlin.

Sales Trainee Programme

Get your feet wet in the exciting field of sales and distribution in one of our companies and bring your sales talents to bear. With this programme, you will earn a diploma as well as gain excellent prospects for the future.

Start Finance Programme

If you find figures just as fascinating as the media, this is the perfect programme for you. Start Finance will prepare you specifically for taking on a position in a business or financial department.

During the approximately two years, you will support the Management Team with planning, drawing up budgets and writing financial reports. In addition, you will complete our challenging programme “Media Manager” for young talents.

Assistant to the Management Team

In this position, you will work closely with the management team, providing support in daily operations as well as preparing important, strategic documents and presentations. As you gain experience you will become involved in more complex conceptual tasks and take on your own projects.

You will also take advantage of our one-year “Media Manager” programme for young talents. Committed and talented assistants have the prospect of moving into a management position within two years.

Do you have your sights set on your future?

From theory to practice: test your interests and discover the opportunities involved – the sooner the better. For many at Holtzbrinck, an internship or student job was the first important step in their career.

Internship and Student Employee

With an internship at Holtzbrinck, you are an important element in our team right from the start, and you learn to assume responsibility and develop your skills.

Gain interesting insights into our international media group, contribute your ideas and take on challenging tasks!

INSIDE MEDIA Support Programme for Students in Internships

If your performance during your internship is above average, we will be glad to support you beyond the internship by including you in our exclusive INSIDE MEDIA support programme. 

We will help to find you a position as a student, provide you with support for your thesis or give you an exciting start to your career with Holtzbrinck. At the annual network day, you meet the other students in the support programme, exchange experiences and make valuable contacts. In addition, we will offer you training courses to further develop your technical and personal skills.

Final Thesis

We can support you in preparing your bachelor's or master's thesis. Apply for one of our current projects or send us your own suggestion. A previous internship or previous student employment with our company will be an advantage.
