360 Global Trainee Program

Locations and timeframe: 18 months, based in London or Zurich

About the program 

We’re looking for exceptional graduates with 360 degrees of talent and vision to be part of our highly selective 18-month global trainee program.

Your year as a 360 trainee will be life changing. Through hands-on experiences, you will obtain knowledge, insight, and skills to launch a dynamic EF career. 

During your year as a 360, you will be exposed to multiple facets of one of our 17 business units and become equipped with extensive, hands-on knowledge of the industry as well as an expansive network of contacts and mentors throughout the organization. 

The Role
It is as much a mission as it is a job. You will assist a senior EF executive who will be your mentor and manager while supporting you throughout the program. Your tasks will be varied and unique. You could be asked to propose a design for a new mobile application, create a global marketing campaign, or analyze data to launch a product in a new market. No assignment is too big or too small for a 360. 

As a European applicant, you will be based in one of EF’s European headquarters, London or Zurich. You will participate in interactive summits where you will connect with other 360s and learn more about EF’s products and our position as the world leader in international education. 

We guarantee you will be challenged, receive real responsibility, and implement interesting projects while working with international colleagues across the globe. You need to possess a sharp combination of quantitative and qualitative skills that will help you collaborate with teams and lead a project. 


The role starts in September 2024.



·       Higher academic degree from a top university

·       Fluency in English. Fluency in one other language is preferred

·       International work and/or study experience

·       Demonstrated leadership experience

·       Proper work authorization for this opportunity (European work permit)


Talents and skills 

·       Your entrepreneurial spirit drives you to treat every endeavor as though it was your own business

·       You are results-driven and hands-on. You believe nothing is impossible—if you have the right attitude

·       You are a born leader, and you bring out the best in people around you

·       You are not afraid to work with stars, because you are one yourself

·       You have a flexible personality

·       You have an innovative approach to problem solving

·       You thrive under pressure, and enjoy fast-paced multicultural work environments

Please submit your resume and cover letter online. We screen applications on a rolling basis, and we encourage you to send in your application as soon as possible.

The application process includes 2 virtual interviews and ends with an assessment day on January 15th 2024, where you will present a 360 case challenge.

Last day to apply is the 18th of December 2023 (24:00 CET).
