Consumer goods and FMCG


If you’re keen to work with household-name brands in a keenly competitive, innovative and creative industry, then a career in consumer goods could be for you. Consumer goods companies shift huge quantities of relatively low-cost items such as lipstick, soap and food, and they recruit graduates into specialisms ranging from logistics and marketing to engineering and accountancy, offering excellent training, good career development prospects and, often, the chance of placements overseas. Our advice will help you stand out in your applications and interviews and at assessment centres for graduate schemes, as well as giving you an overview of the roles and specialisms open to you.
