GEODIS has established an internship program for the families of its employees as a way to build the professional future of younger generations.

The company said its new Jump’In program is an opportunity for students to join an international company.

Geodis CEO Marie-Christine Lombard said, “As the pandemic situation is threatening the start of the professional journey for many of today’s youth, I see it as a heartfelt mission to help this generation find their place.

“Therefore, we are launching Jump’In, an international internship program for our employees’ relatives, to support them at the end of their studies,” Ms Lombard said.

“Jump’In offers students the opportunity to join our global team, to learn from leading logistics experts and to build the future of logistics together.”

Geodis is now offering end-of-study internships in Europe, Asia and America, across all its lines of business: freight forwarding; distribution and express; road transport; and supply chain optimisation.

Children and siblings of Geodis employees who are looking for an internship or work-study program lasting at least three months in order to complete their current year of higher education may apply.

The program offers them an opportunity to enter the business world and discover the logistics sector, globally recognized as vital to the economy.

Ms Lombard said the future of logistics depends on today’s generation of young talent.

“Geodis is a great place to work and learn, at the heart of a sector which is fundamental to our economic and public life worldwide,” she said.

“It is also an opportunity for our employees to promote the GEODIS group, which is rich in a multitude of professions and expertise, and to explain to their friends and family the challenges that we face every day, together, with passion.”
