Your Future, Accelerated

Who are we?

DCC is a FTSE 100 company operating across four divisions in over 40 businesses across 20 countries. You might be asking yourself why you have not heard of DCC. Each of our businesses operates under their own brand and has local senior management teams. All of our 13,200 employees are bound together by our core values and these define how we operate.

We are a diverse Group which means you will have a wide range of career paths to choose from, now and in the future. We can give you the chance to make an impact in the roles you are in and you will have many challenges and learning opportunities on the programme.

Our intensive programme

Marketing is a vital strategic tool in DCC used to drive sales, grow customer acquisition and create awareness around our value-added services. 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.

"The DCC Graduate Programme is different because of the variety of opportunities on offer across different companies, industries and geographies. No other programme offers such a range of experiences resulting in you developing incredibly quickly". Marketing Graduate

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.

Get involved in Marketing projects

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 or to pursue language lessons. 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 unrestricted 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.
