Our support to young people without work experience was launched in September 2020. We have relied on key targets: development and inclusion of young people, CSR activities and support to the Company’s strategy. That’s how we established our Bambi for YOUng.
The Bambi for YOUng internship program is envisaged for final-year students, undergraduates and graduates who want to take their first career steps in one of the leading companies in the FMCG industry. The internship program lasts six months and over the course of the program all interns have continuous support of mentors in their sectors. In addition, interns are included in all current projects in the program and work to fulfil concrete tasks.
Within the Bambi for YOUng program, attention is also paid to empowerment of interns and development of their soft skills, first of all within participation at different workshops.
The value and the quality of Bambi for YOUng program have been recognised both in the company and in the market, reflected in the award for the best internship program in Serbia we obtained in October 2021 by Empple Festival.
Whilst relying on the Company’s strategic direction, in the mid 2020, we have established cooperation with the Technical College of Vocational Studies from Požarevac and realized the six-week summer internship. Second and third-year students, as well as graduates have an opportunity to get acquainted with processes and work methods in the confectionary industry and develop through the six-week internship. The goal of Bambi’s summer internship is to enable attendees to acquire practical expert knowledge and experience and at the same time get acquainted with the Company’s business activities via clearly defined internship program with concrete tasks with continuous mentorship support.
We are pioneers in the field of dual education. In the last couple of years, we have achieved cooperation with the Technical High School “Nikola Tesla” from Kostolac in 2017 and with the Agricultural School with the Dorm "Sonja Marinković” in Požarevac in 2021.
