Schibsted Management Trainee Program



Future proof your career

As a part of Schibsted’s trainee program you will solve real problems, get world-class mentorship, and you’ll be given the opportunity to challenge both yourself and the way things are done. Or in other words: you get the chance to future-proof your career and to shape the future.

Please note that the recruitment period in the fall of 2023 is currently on hold. Details regarding the next recruitment period will be communicated as soon as possible.


About the program

In our two-years Trainee Program you will be assigned four different placements, each lasting six months, with different roles throughout the many Schibsted brands. In addition, we will provide you with all support needed for you to succeed; intense training weeks full of development activities and fun, a private mentor and coaching by Schibsted leaders, and we will help you to set up meaningful business and development goals to build up your foundation as a sustainable and effective leader.

You can work with strategy, product or project management, marketing, data and analytics, or finance - as well as other operational tasks. For example, you could be a business developer for an online marketplace, a product manager at a newspaper, a technology trend analyst or startup investment spotter, or a business analyst with a growth company.

Our three pledges

Selection process

Your first step towards becoming a part of the trainee program is to send in your application.

If your application makes the cut you will receive an ability test, a personality test, be invited to a virtual group assessment, and will have an interview with our recruitment team.

Based on the results from the previous steps, the chosen finalists will participate in the final interview with the top management.

Contracts and welcome on board!

“Schibsted's recruitment process is different from any other I've experienced. It gives the applicant an opportunity to shine and show how they can contribute to the company through both practical exercises and various interviews.”

– Thea, Management trainee
