Mars Finance Leadership Experience

Forget back office finance. This is about more than just crunching the numbers. As part of the Mars Finance Leadership Experience, you’ll be integrated into the business, working as a co-pilot, offering advice and making recommendations that will be highly valued. Ultimately we are looking for future leaders in Finance and we hope that you will be one of them. 

What will I be doing?

The programme consists of three 12-month placements working in supply finance, demand finance and financial control. Each placement is a real job with high-value responsibilities. You could be working at any of our sites and in any of our categories (Confectionery, Petcare or Food). And you’ll spend one year working in Europe. So you’ll get enormous business exposure and have invaluable opportunities to develop your skills, experience and management style.

What support can I expect?

We’ll support you to gain the prestigious CIMA qualification, give you the flexibility to choose your preferred learning method, and provide generous study leave to help you prepare and pay all your fees. Throughout the programme you’ll have support from a mentor – a senior manager, and buddy – a graduate who’s ‘been there and done that’ before. And when the time comes for your all-important international experience, our exceptional support package will provide everything you need to settle into your new environment

Where will I be working?

You’ll need to be flexible about location because your UK placements could be at any of our local sites in Slough (West of London), London Paddington, near Nottingham, Castle Cary (Somerset) or Kings Lynn, and you’ll also have one placement outside the UK at one of our European sites.

What is the criteria?

  • A minimum of a 2:1 degree in any discipline. Please note you can only apply for one programme.
