Commercial Graduates 2017 - Europe

INEOS who?

INEOS is a young and vibrant global chemical company, which is now at the forefront of exploring cutting edge energy solutions for the UK and Europe. We have grown quickly through acquisition, with 65 sites in 16 countries and annual turnover of over $40bn. Yet we often referred to as the biggest company that you have never heard of. We are not publicly quoted and don’t sell directly to consumers, but rather sell our products business to business as the raw materials for manufacturing goods. These products make a significant contribution to saving life, improving health and enhancing standards of living for people around the world. In many of the markets we operate in we are number one in the world.

We are proud of what we do and the way we work, with strong entrepreneurial drive and the benefit of a rich “blue chip” heritage. INEOS has a unique, non-hierarchical working culture which positively encourages the growth of good ideas and involves all employees in the company’s success.

If you thrive on a challenge and are prepared to push yourself to develop further, then INEOS’ open and direct approach to business will give you the opportunity to develop quickly, in a real job with real responsibilities from day one.

The Graduate Opportunity

If you are interested in business roles, then our European commercial graduate programme is for you. The aim of this 4/5 year programme is to provide you with a breadth of commercial experience early in your career. You will typically move roles every 2 years - this could involve moving from one business to another, changing functions and even moving countries. Hence you must be geographically flexible. Each role will provide a new challenge and will enable you to gain a wide range of experience, essential for anyone aspiring to be a future leader.

As we recruit graduates to go into real jobs from day one, the types of roles available vary year on year. Areas you could start in are:

  • Supply chain and logistics
  • Trading & Shipping
  • Procurement
  • Sales
  • Operations

To be suitable for the scheme, you will need a minimum of a 2:1 degree, ideally in a numerate, engineering or science related subject, along with

  • Commercial interest and aptitude
  • Ambition and personal motivation
  • The ability to work under pressure, with confidence
  • A drive for action, initiative and delivery, a ‘can do’ attitude
  • Excellent communication skills

January and September 2017 start dates available.
