“Swiss Post, a dusty and outdated federal enterprise? The trainee programme proved the opposite to me! Today, I associate Swiss Post with a flexible working environment, plenty of scope for ideas and innovation, and motivated colleagues.”

Linda Heini, a trainee in Analytics and Insights Communication (previously a trainee in Development & Innovation in Delivery)
