Introduced: Trainee HR - Program at ARTS

12/07/2022 2022/07

We are looking for participants for our Trainee HR - Program. Because our team can grow. In our program, we give career starters or career changers the opportunity to get to know different job profiles of a full-service HR agency. Because with us, HR work is genuinely varied.

For our clients, we offer services in the areas of employer branding, HR marketing, recruiting, HR services and HR development. Our team members work on a wide range of HR topics along the entire candidate and employee journey, from strategic planning and conception to implementation - more variety in HR management (HRM) doesn't exist!

Does it warm your heart to imagine helping someone find their dream job? Do you like to get to know people and learn more than just superficial things about them? Do you see the personal support of employees as an elementary factor of employee satisfaction? Do you enjoy the challenge of developing innovative solutions for the HR issues of other companies? Would you like to help shape the working world of tomorrow? If one or more of these questions appeals to you, then you should read on here.

Our Mindset in our Trainee HR - Program

The way we treat each other and our trainees and apprentices is clearly reflected in our corporate values. These are not just phrases for us, but we live them every day - in fact, we have derived them from our actual day-to-day work.

  • Development support: In our Trainee HR - Program we are happy to accompany our participants in their professional and personal development. In addition, we offer all employees accompanying or selective coaching by professional coaches. We are companions, as we pass on our experience, try to put ourselves in the shoes of our counterparts, and provide orientation.                                                                      
  • Trust and appreciation: Newcomers at ARTS receive a large portion of trust from the contact persons, the management and the team members right from the start. As a participant in the Trainee HR - Program, we will provide you with your own laptop and other technology so that you can also work on the move. In addition, you will have your own fixed area of responsibility in each training phase and your own specialist projects. Your own project ideas can be pitched and, if they convince our management team, can be implemented on your own responsibility and even with a project team. As a trainee with us, you also don't have to worry about having to listen to sayings like "Fetch the W-LAN cable", the "Siemens air hook" or the "three-phase current to Gardena adapter". Because we treat each other as equals at all times. Of course, this also includes having fun together, but not at the expense of others. We are strong together because we can trust each other and show appreciation for all our colleagues.                                                                                                                                                                     
  • Responsibility: In our Trainee HR - Program, we consider all trainees to be permanent team members from the very beginning. This means that it is a matter of course for us to give you responsibility - even for challenging tasks - right from the start. We want to support you and show you the first steps on the way to the desired result. You won't experience any strict guidelines with us, because we believe that only with enough freedom can your own working methods, best practices and new solutions emerge. We are co-creators, because each of us creates something of our own that serves the greater whole.

The general conditions for the Trainee HR - Program

But what makes ARTS stand out as an employer besides the cordial personal cooperation? And what do you get out of it?

  • Onboarding: As a new ARTS colleague, you will receive extensive onboarding at our Dresden location. This way you can get to know our company, the structure, the culture, our vision and many of our colleagues directly. At the same time, our onboarding is designed to be fun and not overwhelming with mountains of information.
  • Method case: In our Trainee HR - program, we share our method case from our consulting and training practice with you and let you participate in our collaboration with our clients.
  • Expertise: As an HR Full Service Agency, we are one of the companies that can cover all topics of the Employee Life Cycle in our Trainee HR - program. From employer branding and candidate journey, active sourcing, recruiting and suitability diagnostics, direct employee support, contract and reference preparation as well as time management to personnel development and training. We show you the technical knowledge and the operational application of this both internally at ARTS and in our consulting assignments with our customers. 
  • Project management: In our projects we work with various proven project management methods. Depending on the type and scope of the project, we use different methods such as resource planning, effort estimation and project canvas.
  • Personal development: In addition to the technical content of the traineeship, a practical feedback process and our optional coaching offer will also support you in your personal development.
  • Long-term cooperation: our Trainee HR - Program is intended to cover our need for specialists in the long term, accordingly your transfer to a permanent employment relationship is planned after the end of the program - if both parties are satisfied with the cooperation.
  • Hybrid working: We do not expect you to be permanently present in our offices, but rather rely on hybrid working between home office and our locations.
  • Industry entry: Jobs in HR are future-proof, because they can only be replaced by artificial intelligence in small subareas. And there is already an immense recruiter shortage in the job market today. So by joining us, you'll also get your ticket into an industry that holds great promise for the long term.

This is what our Trainee HR - Program looks like

Our traineeship is based on training on and off the job with a plan and structure, but also with degrees of freedom so that you can look into projects or other specialist areas that are not explicitly planned. In this way, we want to accommodate your strengths and preferences in order to train you according to your personal potential. This is the only way to ensure sustainable success for you as a trainee and for ARTS.

A good example for an own project of learning colleagues is the project of our current permanent team members Robin and Annika. During their apprenticeship and student traineeship, respectively, the two of them developed and conducted a webinar on the topic of "job happiness". They conducted interviews, studied the theory of work psychology and new work, and worked out how to implement a successful webinar. This was an exciting experience for the two of them and came about solely from their own ideas. We are already looking forward to many more such great projects from our junior staff!

In our 2-year Trainee HR – Program at our Dresden location, the following stations and areas of responsibility are firmly scheduled:


  • Creative and target group-oriented formulation of job advertisements
