How does the programme work?

Over the three year rotation programme, you’ll have an opportunity to gain experience in exciting specialisms within Engineering and Technical and develop your leadership skills.

In our Engineering rotations you’ll work at the heart of an enormous global manufacturing operation where you will get the chance to work on industry leading technology and, of course, help us shape the future! As an Engineer in our talented team you’ll play a pivotal role in ensuring the delivery of efficient and effective maintenance and repair, problem solving and improvement of assets and their availability across sites.

In Technical rotations you’ll work with specialists in brand change, science and technology, safety, quality, environmental sustainability, and governance to ensure we innovate and grow while protecting our people, brands, and the environment.

Over the three-year rotation programme, you’ll have a combination of formal training with a global leadership curriculum, mentoring and coaching from respected colleagues and, most importantly, real world, on-the-job experience. From the beginning you’ll be working on projects that will develop and improve your skill set. You’ll be able to make a real contribution to the business while building a global network of relationships that will support your career, both now and long into the future.
