Epoka Business Academy – Aim higher

Are you our next sales or purchase talent? Epoka is looking for career-minded and highly driven trainees for our two-year Business Academy, starting in September 2017. We are an international distributor of end of life enterprise servers, storage and networking hardware, aiming to be the preferred choice for our customers around the world. Our Business Academy is a great start for a career in sales or purchasing, and provides you with plenty of options to learn and develop yourself personally and professionally.

About us

Epoka is an international distributor of end-of-life enterprise servers, storage, and networking hardware. We believe that it is not necessary to abandon a well-working system just because the manufacturer does not support it anymore. Therefore, we offer the freedom to continue using older systems by providing new or refurbished products, such as servers, storage systems, hard disk drives or networking equipment to customers around the world. We are constantly developing our business, and aim to be the preferred choice of distributor in our field. Our highly skilled international sales team consists of 16 different nationalities, and handles customers from around the world. As part of our growth strategy, we have recently moved to Svenstrup, where our office and warehouse is ready to support further development.

What will you learn?

Our Business Academy is a hands-on practical programme, focused on sales and purchasing. The Trainee programme is a mix of practical and theoretical education, where you will have your own responsibilities from the start. As a trainee in our Business Academy, you have the option to choose purchase or sales as your main direction. All trainees receive in-house training, and those who do not have a university level education already, will take part in an 8-12 week long customizable training next to the in-house classes. You will start at our warehouse, where you will learn the basics, then move on to the sales department. After a year of training, you will move to a specific department based on your performance and preferences. However, you will receive smaller sales tasks from the very beginning, and you will have your own responsibilities even as a trainee. It is important to us that you are well prepared both theoretically and practically for your future career. The Business Academy provides you with great opportunities for learning and advancing in your career, as well as an excellent start. With the skills you gain during the Trainee programme, you will be prepared for a sales or purchase position internationally.
