Graduate Development Program

Graduate Development Program

People join our business through different routes and at different stages of their career. Some join straight from school, university or college. Some join partway through their careers. And some are able to participate in structured development programs.

A small number of graduates may be eligible for our Graduate Development Program (GDP).

The GDP is for recent university leavers with a minimum 2:2 degree (or international equivalent), who demonstrate an ability to tackle problems in innovative ways, with a genuine commitment to teamwork, people and diversity. Applicants must also have at least two languages of which English should be one, a truly international mindset and the desire to work in different countries.

The GDP gives this small number of high-calibre graduates the broadest view across the Our business and fast-tracked development. The program offers a combination of formal training and on-the-job development that will enable you to gain a deep insight into our business and to grow your skills and capabilities – while adding real value from day one.

The program covers:

 

  • Rotation

    Together we’ll design a program of rotations, incorporating our core business areas of Sales, Supply Chain and Support Functions. You’ll have the opportunity to make a significant contribution to the team’s objectives and projects, while building an extensive network of colleagues and senior leaders from all parts of the organisation, who can support your ongoing personal and professional development.

  • Training and Support

    To accelerate your learning journey, you’ll have regular, formal development opportunities through our comprehensive, world-class training programs, covering a wide range of business and technical skills. You will be further supported by a senior business mentor and a dedicated coach, who will help you grow both personally and professionally.

  • Challenge

    To experience our charitable culture and our commitment to social and corporate responsibility, sustainability and innovation, you will take part in two challenges, working alongside your peers on the program: our Charity Challenge will enable you to make a real difference in your community, while our Business Challenge is aimed at creating a positive impact on the way we do business.

Drive real innovation

The GDP is for graduates with the enthusiasm, creativity and business acumen to drive real innovation, and become our future leaders. Full of energy, fresh ideas and ambition, applicants must love learning new things, be open to being challenged and have the confidence to challenge us too.

We are recruiting across Europe, Middle East, Africa and North America in the following countries: France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Saudi-Arabia, South-Africa, Spain, United Kingdom and North America.
