What's the name of the illustration with the mask on your awesome logo?

It's called the "Medicine Mask". This info could come in handy later ;)

What are the costs for trainees?

There are no costs for the trainees. The company who will hire you and invests in your education.

Do you teach in Dutch or English?

English. (Some companies will require Dutch speaking trainees.)

What does full-time mean?

This means you can’t work or study next to it or do it part time. You will be hired as a full time Trainee by a company for a period of 6 months but with long term intentions.

Is there another 6 Month traineeship coming up?

Yes, in Q1 or Q2 2019. But we strongly recommend you to apply as soon as possible because the spots can fill up quickly. 

Do I get an official Degree?

Yes! You get an official Growth Tribe certificate that you successfully finished the Academy.

I’m a company and I am interested in hiring a trainee of the program

Great, please email stef@growthtribe.nl

Can I apply if I am not from The Netherlands?

Yes, if you are a citizen of the European Union or have a solid working permit. Unfortunately at this point we cannot fix a working permit for you. Student permits are not valid as you will be hired by a company.

Do I get a salary or compensation?

Yes. The company will give you a market conform traineeship salary on a monthly basis. Your salary will range from €1750 to €2000 based on your experience. Understand that the company invests a lot in you by providing you with a exclusive spot in the Growth & AI program. 

What does the selection process look like?

You start by filling out our questionnaire. When you fit our selection criteria Julia will get in touch with you to plan in a Skype call. If we are still convinced you could be one of the trainees, we will send you a Challenge and let you run some tests. You will have a second Skype call and to discuss the results. We'll then ask you to upload a video. If you succeed we will match you to one of the companies. You are now in the hiring process of the company. If there is a match: you are hired by the company and you’ll get a spot in the traineeship. Congrats!  

I don’t feel like I match the qualities you describe on your website, can I still apply?

Yes, please try :)

I’m a company and I am interested in bringing in my own trainee in the traineeship.

Great, please email stef@growthtribe.nl
