Whether you think your future lies in management or you’re more cut out for a specialist role in commercial, technology, sales, engineering, R&D or Finance, you can be sure of one thing. With us, you’ll never be seen as just a number. Or even as just another graduate. You’re coming in to keep our success story moving forward. In all kinds of new ways. And that’s why we have a wide range of graduate programmes. Whichever programme you choose, you’ll have access to a fantastic support structure, line managers, mentors and a buddy who’ll all be there to help you make your training mean more for your career.


AFTER THE PROGRAMME

We’re global. We have six different business segments. We have all sorts of different functional areas, from Marketing to Manufacturing. All of which means that when your programme comes to an end, your development won’t. Anything but. Your future will be wide open. You can move upwards, sideways, across borders, across functions. In fact, we positively encourage this because we know that the broader your experience, the more you’ll be able to make your work mean more. Development is very much at the heart of our culture, so you’ll continue to learn through experience, through your colleagues and through more formal training. In a nutshell, your ongoing career here can be exactly what you make it. In the meantime, here’s more information about our programmes:
