Key purpose of job
We’re looking for talented, enthusiastic and dedicated graduates to join our 2019 Commercial and Marketing Graduate scheme. The two-year program, which provides an immersive experience in an award-winning global family business, will see you work across multiple functions and brands.
From supporting a brand marketing department on one rotation to managing an account with one of our large online retailers the next, your experience during the scheme will be hugely varied to help give you the best exposure to all areas of our business. You’ll gain insight to every element of the product journey from concept through to consumer and learn how we drive growth on a global scale. You’ll develop your own expertise in the areas that interest you, and you’ll learn how we build brands for the world to love, generation after generation.
Throughout the program you’ll learn how we do business the right way, through a mixture of on-the-job development, classroom-based training and mentoring to make sure you’re always learning and building your skill-set. Alongside this, you’ll have a great support network of experienced managers, team members and a previous graduate buddy who will always be on-hand to help out.
