IT Trainee program 2019

Stockholm, Stockholm County

Do you want to be part of H&M group’s global expansion while working within the intersection of IT and business? Every year we hire a few selected candidates for our IT Trainee Program designed to develop future leaders and experts.


As one of our H&M IT trainees you will participate in a 11 month long program starting in August 2019, where you will work close together with the other trainees. The program is cross-functional with focus on both our business processes and IT solutions within sales, logistics, online and change management. This will give you a solid foundation in running innovative global projects from both an IT and a Business perspective here at H&M.

The program consists of both training and projects in order to provide you with hands-on experience from several key business areas. In addition to training in our business processes, applications and ERP solutions (SAP) you will also get a broad introduction to the H&M group, our values and how we work with feedback and project methodology. To get insight into our core business you will work in our stores and warehouses as well as in other areas of H&M group’s dynamic organization. All to make you grow and develop both professionally and personally.

The trainee program places high demands on you but in return we can guarantee you an exciting and challenging job where you are expected to take on great responsibility. You will soon lead workshops and meetings and be responsible for developing and rolling out solutions within your focus area. To guide you in your personal development you will be assigned a mentor. Through the program you will also gain a great network within our company; meeting and working with different key persons in our organization. On top of this you and your trainee colleagues will become a close-knitted group from which you will benefit throughout your entire H&M group career.

After graduation you will be ready for a leading and/or expert role such as Business Expert, Application Expert or Project Manager. Regardless of role, you will become an ambassador for the cross functional aspects.
