Do you have the ambition to become legendary and do you have a degree from a university or a university of applied sciences? If the answer to both questions is ‘yes’, then we challenge you to participate in our Young Talent Traineeship. In this custom made program – created with the best IT-trainers of the Netherlands – you will lay the foundation for a career in IT.

Once you join as a Young Professional at True Legends, you immediately start a graduate program of up to 24 months. The traineeship kicks off with a bootcamp: one month of intense IT-training, together with your fellow trainees. This track consists of both an IT-specialism – which we decide together beforehand – and personal development and related coaching. The job of an IT-specialist asks for more than just knowledge, after all. After this bootcamp you get to work in one of the best companies in the Netherlands, you’ll receive a more in depth training in your specialism and you will further develop your personal skills. During this deployment you will be trained on the job and you will be coached by, amongst others, your personal Talent Manager of True Legends. You will specialise yourself in one field, which could be either Business Performance, Business & IT or Development & Operations. After a maximum of two years you get the opportunity to make a transition to the company you’re working for, or you can continue your career at True Legends.

You do need to realise that you don’t just become a professional at True Legends. We will undergo a joint procedure to determine if you can make the difference in the balance between Business and IT for True Legends and its running projects. Because of this, it is very important for you to stipulate in your motivational letter why you fit in with IT, where your affinity for IT stems from and how you intend to make a difference in the world of IT.

What do we ask of a Legend?

Legends are high potentials who have completed a degree on either a university or a university of applied sciences and who are willing to develop themselves further in the dynamic field of IT.
