From intern to Management Trainee to Senior Teamleader

In the third year of my Logistics Engineering education, I did an internship at DSV Solutions in Moerdijk in the Business Support department. Immediately after the start of my internship I felt at home at DSV and that feeling has remained unchanged. During this internship, a Management Traineeship after my study was quickly discussed. A traineeship in which you fulfill several jobs in a few years. A great opportunity to start thinking about it.

In my fourth year of study I got the opportunity to graduate at DSV and I took this opportunity. During my internships I conducted interesting studies that also created insights for DSV. This gave me a lot of freedom in conducting my research and also a lot of input and help from colleagues.

In 2019 I started my traineeship as a Logistics Engineer. I could immediately start a project for the entire branch in Moerdijk. We are currently in the middle of the implementation phase of this project, where I am also a Project Manager in addition to Engineer. In both positions I have learned a lot and I learn every day. The continuous learning process and working together in a team to make this project a success makes it incredibly fun. The switch from an intern to an employee within DSV was automatic.

Within DSV you can develop and you get or create your own challenges. The guidance from DSV is good. You carry out the projects independently with a team. There is always room to spar and ask for advice.

As part of my traineeship, I will switch to the Senior Teamleader position in the new warehouse in Tholen at the end of this year.
