Graduate Program

Welcome to the Mars Leadership Experience in Multisales Europe and Southern Africa!

Where you start your career at Mars, is just the beginning. Joining our Graduate program, which is known as The Mars Leadership Experience, will kick off 3 rewarding years packed with great experiences, opportunities and learning. Our program is designed to build both your functional/technical skills, as well as providing you with stretching leadership opportunities to prepare you for an exciting career.

Over the course of this three 12-month placements you’ll get a complete overview of our business, you'll experience different markets, different functions, different teams, countries and products. The program runs across a number of our Multisales organization countries. In the first 12 months on the program you will be based in your Home country (within the Multisales geography) and this will act as your Home site - you will also sign off the program into your Home site. After a successful first year end-of-placement review you will be given opportunity to move to a different market and potentially different function, to work with different brands. We will provide full support with your moves and living abroad. It is important that you are fully mobile for this program and is something you should consider before applying.

  • Naturally collaborative & curious
  • Initiative & challenge takers
  • Accountable & results focused
  • Learners, growers & continuous improvers
  • Recent Undergraduates or Postgraduates
  • Fluent in English and another European language
  • Originally coming from Multisales countries (refer to the MS map below)
  • Fully mobile within Europe and Southern Africa
