Young Graduate Program - Retail



The Arvesta Young Graduate Program is a 16-month journey, where you can explore what makes you tick in various assignments across multiple departments. We provide programs in supply chain, marketing/communication, central services, sales and retail. You will be project lead in consecutively three main & sub projects that are defined by our business owners. During those projects, you will be supported by your team members for the implementation of the project, by HR for your personal development & by your mentor for your career questions.   

Whether you are working on exciting marketing campaigns or business projects, your impact is guaranteed.  At the Arvesta headquarters in Leuven, or for one of our 40+ leading brands in Belgium, France, the Netherlands & Germany.   

Let’s talk about our Retail track. Do you know your local Aveve by heart? Excited to learn more about how we became Retailer of the Year? Curious about how Eurotuin combines selling flowers with a cozy coffee corner in the shop? Are you fascinated by retail and everything that goes with it? As a Young Graduate in Retail you get to know the ins and outs of our stores. You carry out strategic, ambitious projects that will further grow our retail business unit. An extensive onboarding, in which you also spend a few weeks in our stores as a Customer Advisor, cannot be missed! Your colleagues are equally fascinated by retail, and are in different teams such as marketing, finance, procurement, communication... and so on! 




You are ambitious, passionate and willing to make an impact. At Arvesta, the right mindset is fundamental. The Arvesta-attitude, supplemented with skills specific to your track, will make you our dream candidate.  

  • You have a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree economics, business administration, management, communication, marketing, retail…    
  • Just graduated or with less than one year of experience 
  • You have a strong interest in nutrition, agriculture & our business as a whole and you are willing to develop that interest into knowledge   
  • You are a transversal kind of person (that’s like a human octopus)   
  • You are not afraid to speak your mind and you have a hands on mentality (cliché, but a real dealmaker)  
  • You are keen on developing yourself   
  • Naast dat je vloeiend Nederlands of Frans spreekt, tu es capable de tirer ton plan dans l'autre langue & you can express yourself in English    
  • You’re a “let’s have a 10 minute coffee” break kinda person

Well – we must say – a lot.
