Our Global Graduate Program 

The Global Graduate Program is our 2-year international development program that combines a real job from day one with structured development through an on-going focus on learning and training. You’ll meet up with fellow Graduates and senior managers during the two-week Global Graduate Academy in the heart of the English countryside and at international training.

You’ll be given responsibility and your own projects from the beginning, allowing you to develop your career with support at every stage of the process, including on-going feedback and coaching. It will give you a chance to make an impact on our business and, ultimately, set you up for a successful career ahead.

Your Program will include rotations in Branding, Trade Marketing and Strategic Planning & Insights. You’ll gain fantastic insights into the business: from our factory operations to the products we sell, the markets we operate in, the organizations we compete with and, most important of all, our consumers.
