Then go to Netto: Girls’ and Boys’ Day for Schoolchildren at Netto Marken-Discount

Maxhütte-Haidhof, April 2022 – On Thursday, April 28, 2022, on nationwide Girls’ and Boys’ Day, Netto Marken-Discount allows schoolchildren to learn about the diverse corporate world of groceries. On this day, young people learn something about the many possible job opportunities at Netto. They can savor practical work and immerse themselves in different areas such as marketing, information technology, human resources, accounting, expansion and logistics. The grocer is looking forward to welcoming schoolchildren again this year directly to Netto’s on-site headquarters.

What attracts young people more – training or study?

Graduation is approaching and the opportunities for schoolchildren to choose a profession are limitless. Netto Marken-Discount offers 20 apprenticeships, two high school graduation programs and five double bachelor’s degrees – the largest in the Upper Palatinate gives boys and girls who participate in the annual Girls and Boys Day Insights. Interns, alumni and old employees will tell the young ones about their daily work. “The variety of our internship opportunities is constantly growing. This year we will be adding two exciting apprenticeships. On Girls and Boys Day 2022, schoolchildren can learn about our diverse apprenticeships – perhaps we will see one or the other again at Netto in a few years.”says Cristina Stiliano, Netto’s Head of Communications.

Learn about a wide range of interests and opportunities

Girls and Boys Day offers pupils a diverse change from everyday school life: on April 28, girls and boys in grades 5-10 can experience how individual sections work at Netto headquarters.
