The direct impact you have on the business is visible from early on. In my time on the DCC graduate programme, I have worked in two sales teams across two different regions – first as a domestic sales negotiator and then as customer account manager for commercial sales. Both roles enabled me to have a real impact on the commercial success of the region and of the business as a whole.
Throughout the programme, I was able to take on projects alongside my day-to-day role. One project involved conducting market research, which gave me great exposure to senior management. Another involved diversifying the product portfolio for all clients of each sales team across the region.
Anyone who is looking to travel should consider a career with DCC. There are opportunities available across Europe, North America and Asia. You will also have the chance to travel domestically once you’re placed in a given country and role – I have visited five different offices in four different cities while I’ve been working here in the UK.
The support is excellent too. If ever I have needed anything, the graduate support team have been only a phone call or email away. And I am always able to call on my graduate coach or buddy when I need them. They have really helped me develop, both personally and professionally.
