At Districon – advisory group ‘Supply chain & Logistics’ of Royal HaskoningDHV – we are always open for graduation interns. This graduation assignment is one of the supply chain topics we are heavily involved in and where we are very passionate about.

So, are you looking for a graduation internship where you learn everything about supply chain management? Where you get the opportunity to move on to your first job? Then an internship at Districon is exactly what you are looking for!

What will you do during the internship?

"Improving the forecasting model of a large international fashion retailer’.
