Supply Chain Role

Associated British Foods is a diversified international food, ingredients & retail group with sales in excess of £13bn, over 130,000 employees and a presence in 50 countries.

We recruit 20-25 graduates each year into our Grocery division, which comprises consumer-facing businesses that manufacture and market a variety of well-known brands both nationally and internationally. The businesses have developed an enviable portfolio of leading grocery brands, such as Jordans cereals, Patak's curry pastes, Kingsmill bread, Ryvita crispbread, Silver Spoon sugar, Twinings tea and many more! We’ve also recently acquired two fantastic sports nutrition brands; High 5 and Reflex Nutrition, further broadening the categories in which we operate.

ABF focuses on giving people real responsibility and growing profit whilst operating in a friendly and down to earth way. Our graduate schemes are designed to give you relevant experience and the stretch to become one of our future leaders. You'll get a real job on day one with training, development and support to help you flourish. We encourage networking and the building of cross-functional as well as cross-business relationships and there are plenty of opportunities to maximise your career growth by experiencing different brands, categories, processes, and even continents!

We have 7 graduate schemes across Customer Development, Engineering, HR, Marketing, Procurement, Supply Chain & Operations, and Technical.

The 18-month Supply Chain scheme on the other hand will give you a great overview of the entire process of food manufacturing; from sourcing all of the ingredients and packaging, through planning what to make and when, manufacturing the product safely and efficiently, checking it’s the right quality and then making sure it’s on the right lorry to get to our customers and into the shopper’s hands.
