“I have the privilege of being part of the graduate program as a coach, where I guide graduates in overcoming the everyday challenges of their fresh careers. One of the most amazing aspects of the graduate program is that not only it helps graduates grow professionally, but also allows them to get to know the company and its culture. This is made possible through the support of a network consisting of their manager, mentor, and coach, as well as participation in training, challenges, and meetings with leadership. It is truly rewarding to witness the progress of the graduates as their confidence and self-awareness increase.”

Hear from Lorenzo on his journey through the program


LorenzoMy decision to apply to VWTS graduate program was driven by my passion for environmental sustainability that grew during my university studies and my ambition to make my contribution to sustainable development. Knowing VWTS reputation as a global leader in environmental services and seeing its offerings in terms of learning opportunities and career development, I felt like this was the opportunity I was looking for to start my professional growth while cultivating my passion and ambition.

The program enriched my experience in different ways, however what I enjoyed the most were the training sessions in different WVTS locations around Europe where I had the opportunity to develop my skills in a stimulating environment collaborating with other young professionals like me, but with different cultures, backgrounds and coming from different areas of the business.

The program was key for my professional growth as it provided me with the mentorship of experienced professionals within the company who gave me a valuable guidance and supported me navigating my career path in a global company as VWTS. Moreover, the program gave me the opportunity to grow exponentially my network, expanding my professional connections and opening doors for future opportunities.

Currently I work in VWTS Supply Chain global organization as PSI Leader, being responsible of aligning, coordinating and balancing Production, Sales and Inventory for assembly factories in EMEA region.

My advice to anyone applying to VWTS graduate program is to be ambitious and proactive showing your passion and the enthusiasm that young professionals can have. VWTS has the purpose of being a global champion of ecological transformation and the program gives you the opportunity to be part of this noble goal and make your contribution to it from the early stages of your career.
