Leadership Talent Track: What’s IN it for you?

The Leadership Talent track is an 18-month entry program which will prepare you for a leadership role within the Daimler Trucks & Buses organization.

The track consists of three phases: the Onboarding phase, the actual Program phase and the Implementation phase.

Through this track, you will get to know our organization, deep dive into agile international assignments and develop a tight intercultural social network – all under the guidance of a personal mentor from top management.

(i) The Onboarding Phase (6 months)

Preparation is key. To give you a head start, you will spend the first 6 months connecting with your home area at Daimler Trucks & Buses, getting to know your personal mentor, defining your future project tasks, using our training and development offers, e.g. our new leadership culture Leadership2020.

(ii) The Program Phase (12 months)

By the start of the program, you will be ready to hone your leadership skills by working on an international assignment, exploring your core area from a customer’s perspective, organizing in swarms to take on future strategic topics, gaining insights into actual day-to-day work at our production facilities, taking part in start-up or turn-around experiences, e.g. a change management project, attending the Joint Global Experience networking and leadership events.

(iii) The Implementation Phase

Upon completion of the program, you and your mentor will prepare for the next step. Depending on your experiences, interests and skills, you will begin working towards assuming a leadership position in your core business area. And towards shaping the future of Daimler Trucks & Buses.

Daimler Trucks & Buses offers jobs in every imaginable field in the automotive economy, such as Production, Procurement, HR, IT, Finance as well as Research & Development. That is why we are always looking for the next generation of inspiring leaders to tackle future challenges on a global scale.

And, there are some traits that we would like to see in you:

Do you have a global and intercultural mindset that enables you to inspire a team and master interdisciplinary challenges?

Do you want to work with people to achieve ambitious goals?

TIs leadership to you, more about being in the midst of things than taking a top-down or bottom-up approach?

If your answer to these questions is “yes”, then we want you!

Of course, there are some requirements:


  • A Bachelor’s degree or higher.
  • Willingness to travel abroad and a global mindset.
  • Some first leadership experience (e.g. in university context).
  • Some experience in a start-up environment.
  • Fluent written and spoken English. In addition, fluency in Japanese is highly preferred.
