I decided to apply for the Lidl HR Graduate Management Development Programme during my final year of college after speaking to a past Lidl graduate at a gradireland careers fair. The ownership, responsibility and opportunity that they were given throughout their time on the programme made me want to share in their experience too. Nearly 1 year into the programme and I can safely say it has exceeded all expectations.
I have been given many different projects to work on in different areas of HR which gives me a broad overview and understanding of how the different HR functions work within the business. You are allowed to be creative with your work, voice an opinion during meetings and contribute to the roll-out of many ongoing exciting projects. The level of opportunity and exposure that you are given is second to none which is probably my favourite thing about working at Lidl!
