What Trainee Program do you offer? 

We have one trainee program within the H&M group with different tracks, we call them Digital Growth Trainee and Tech Trainee.   

What is the program all about?

The program is about learning as much as you can, building your network and finding your first role. We have different tracks within the program depending in your background and interest.

What´s the biggest differences between the tracks of the program? 

To keep it simple, either you´re tech with a touch of business or business with a touch of tech. 

Both tracks are linked to our digital transformation journey but within the Tech Trainee track we see that you have a profound tech interest, with an academical background linked to Engineering, Data, IT or Tech. Most importantly, you see yourself working with tech within H&M Group providing tech solutions for the entire group. 

The Digital Growth Trainee track is also connected to our digital transformation journey within H&M Group but more looking at it from a business perspective. The shift towards a more digital customer experience and offer affects our way of working within many areas (anything from assortment to expansion and sales to name a few) and it´s within this shift that you will be placed as a trainee. Trainees taking part in the Digital Growth Trainee track will most likely have a degree in Business, Economics, Statistics or Marketing and an interest within digitalization.

What is the program timeline?

The program runs for a year, starting at the end of august. It starts off with about 6-8 weeks long introduction to H&M Group before heading into a more detailed introduction depending on where your track is hosted.

Where is the program being held?

The Tech trainee track will be held in Stockholm.

The Digital Growth Trainee track will start off in Stockholm, but you will also get the chance to do rotations out in our regions around the world.

Will you help me relocate to Sweden?

Yes, we will of course help you with that. We provide you with a comprehensive service to get you going in Sweden. For the Trainee Program we offer a “relocation package” for candidates relocating to Sweden, more information about this will be provided to relevant candidates further down the recruitment process. If you are assigned a rotation/project outside of Sweden during the Digital Growth Trainee track, we will arrange with accommodation for that specific location as well. 

What support will I have during the program?

You will have the opportunity to have contact with trainees from the previous trainee year, experienced colleagues working in different areas in our business and you will also have a manager that takes care of you.

How will I be compensated?

As a trainee, you will get a market-based, monthly salary throughout the program and H&M Employee benefits.
