We Do Beautiful.

Apprenticeship at the Headquarter

School's out, your choice!

You finally did it: School time is officially over and you are facing a whole world of opportunities. At Douglas, you can train in our stores – but hands are needed at our Headquarters as well. Behind the scenes behind Beauty, so to speak.

Experience how the daily business in an international company works and get to know our administration and IT while starting your career from right at the base. The topic remains the same because we’re all about our beauty and health platform. The tasks and expertise to be trained in at our HQ are a bit broader than from those at our stores, though. Just have a look around – we’re sure, you will find something that suits you.

Application process

How we do it.

You want to train at the Douglas HQ? Cool. We will explain our application process step by step.

  • First things first: screening and selecting

    After advertising all vacancies, we collect and then screen all applications for the required qualifications of the particular vacancies. This typically involves checking report cards, practical experience, entry dates and much more to be sure that everything fits. Afterwards, we hand our selection over to the respective specialist department which ultimately decides which one of the pre-selected candidates we would like to get to know better.
  • Welcome: you are part of the NEXT GEN

    In order to welcome new members of the NEXT GEN BEHIND BEAUTYand to get to know each other, we start with a „socialising week“. We assemble all apprentices from the HQ and distribution and get them acquainted with thei new tasks. To make sure, that you really get to know each aspect and dimension of THE NEXT GEN you will also spend some time working at our stores.
  • Face to face: our first Date

    As soon as the specialist department has made their decision, we prepare a task or an assessment center to check relevant skills in advance. This way, everybody gets a chance to impress us face to face and we are also able to give a little outlook on how it is to work at DOUGLAS. Subsequently, a jury of co-workers from the specialist department and HR decides who makes the cut. Sometimes we even give acceptances on the spot.
