DCC Marketing Graduate Programme

Your Future, Accelerated

Explore global opportunities with an ever-expanding business. Reach the highest levels of the commercial world. Go from being a talented, ambitious graduate to being the future of our company. These are just some of the things that could be in store for you when you join us at DCC.

Our intensive programme

Few development experiences can match the intensity of the DCC Marketing Graduate Programme. Over two years, you’ll build up knowledge and skills in different companies, different divisions and potentially different countries as well.

Your opportunity to make a real impact from day one

By bringing our products to life in the eyes of consumers, Marketing plays a key part in our commercial success – and so can you. As a Marketing graduate, you’ll build brands, develop creative marketing initiatives, and make a visible contribution to our business right from the start.

Gain broad international exposure

This programme puts you at the heart of the action, introducing you to a diverse range of responsibilities, challenges and experiences across our global business.

A typical day for our Marketing graduates can include:

  • Designing and implementing a social media strategy for one of our businesses
  • Managing a business’s own brand ranges
  • Contributing to exhibitions and media campaigns
  • Leading customer acquisition and retention campaigns
  • New product development
  • Developing and executing above the line (ATL) and below the line (BTL) marketing campaigns for brands
  • Enjoying a team lunch or socialising with colleagues after work

Ongoing development and support

  • Learning happens in the classroom as well as on the job, and we will also provide funding for you to gain a professional qualification.
  • You will be supported throughout the programme by your Line Manager, a dedicated Coach, a Graduate Buddy, your Graduate Programme Business Contact and of course, the Graduate Programme team.

What we look for

  • Given the global nature of the programme, it’s essential that you are internationally mobile and have the right to work in the UK, the Republic of Ireland and within the European Economic Area (EEA).  
  • You also need a 2:1 degree (or equivalent – e.g. BAC+5) plus strong team-working, communication and relationship-building skills.
  • Your degree can be in any discipline, although ideally it should have some relation to marketing.
