Sourcing and Supply Chain Graduate Acceleration Program

Launch your supply chain management career with an ASML traineeship: a full-time paid job that starts with a two-year training program

ASML’s Sourcing and Supply Chain Graduate Acceleration Program is an opportunity for recent graduates to work at our headquarters in Veldhoven, the Netherlands, at the heart of one of the largest supplier networks in Europe.

The ASML Sourcing Supply Chain Graduate Program is similar to a traineeship, but allows you to specialize in a specific field instead of doing job rotations across the company.

In the Sourcing and Supply Chain Graduate Acceleration Program, we provide you with the opportunity to learn about a broad range of operations, from securing on-time delivery of materials and interacting with suppliers to optimizing inventory levels across our warehouses and reacting to customer demand.

Applications are closed.

Applications for the ASML Sourcing and Supply Chain Graduate Acceleration closed on January 2, 2023.
