Marketing & Sales Graduate Programme 2017

When it comes to finding a great place to work there are plenty of things to look for: inspirational colleagues, freedom in your job to make a real difference, and a shared ethos you can truly believe in. Throw in top perks, a responsive and dynamic environment and unrivalled opportunities to develop personally and professionally and you've found something pretty special. You've found Danone. At Danone you'll be part of a second to none graduate programme undertaking two 12 month placements; one in Sales and the other in Marketing, based in our Head Offices in London and Trowbridge, near Bath. During each placement you will be assigned a real role within the business with real responsibility and accountability, developing your commercial acumen and key business competencies.

You will have access to our first class learning and development programme focused on building your leadership skills. You will have the opportunity to learn and network across all levels of our business; from your fellow graduates to our directors. Here at Danone we put people at the centre of everything we do - whether we're developing ground-breaking new ideas with them, pitching our market-leading products to them, or supporting them in the community. And if you join us you can expect exactly that sort of attention too. That's why 70% of our graduates get promoted within 24 months - and why we're consistently at the top of the Great Place to Work poll of UK employees.

To obtain a place on this highly competitive programme you'll need to demonstrate evidence of your abilities to engage and align teams, create breakthrough results, and take responsibility and risk to show the way forward.

You will need a 2.1 degree in any discipline, a minimum of 320 UCAS points and be available to start in September 2017 to apply for the scheme.

You'll also need to be geographically/internationally mobile to take up the opportunities that the programme presents.

Recruitment Process

We will be shortlisting the online applications in September and October. If successful at this stage, you will be invited to complete our online verbal and numerical testing. The next stages will be a video interview and an invitation to the Danone Leadership Academy in December.
