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.

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

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

"I joined the DCC Graduate Programme because of the sheer diversity of opportunity which you just can't get on any other programme, the opportunity to work in different industries and in different countries at the beginning of your career is truly a unique offering". Business Management Graduate

Your opportunity to learn alongside the best in the business

We're proud to say we have some truly amazing managers working for us at DCC. As a Business Management Graduate, you'll be able to build up your commercial skills and experience while learning from the very best. There will also be opportunities for you to gain exposure to various aspects of our business including procurement, retail, HR, logistics, operations, and sales and marketing.

Get involved in our Business Management 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 Business Management Graduates can include:

  • Contributing to post-acquisition integration projects

  • Working with senior management on business forecasting and planning

  • Managing sales projects as part of a fast-paced central function

  • Managing business change projects

  • Developing Operational Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)

  • Managing IT system implementation

  • 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 business management.
