Georgina joined the Kraft Heinz European Trainee Program in 2016. This 4.5-month Program is for ambitious and talented indivdiuals who see themselves in a leadership-based career within the 5th largest Food and Beverage Company worldwide. This Program involves intense trainings in diverse functional areas in the UK and the Netherlands (People &Legal, Supply Chain, R&D, Finance, Marketing), Field Sales training in the UK and Italy, and owning an individual project. At the conclusion of the 4.5 months, the trainees are placed into a role where they can add immediate value.
Georgina, why did you apply at Kraft Heinz?
After studying a module in Environmental Economics and doing voluntary work as a student, I became passionate about the idea of giving back to the world so working for Kraft Heinz, a company whose vision is to grow a better world was something I was very interested in.
What surprised you about Kraft Heinz?
From the beginning we were trusted with the responsibility of completing real business projects that grow the company, I would not have expected this great responsibility. Also the strong presence of meritocracy was surprising, delivering results brings rewards - this was evident when we discovered the CFO was 28 yrs.
Kraft Heinz gives trainees the opportunity to…
Be exposed to senior leaders from the very first day and have the opportunity to make a name for yourself within your business unit and across Europe.
I would recommend others to apply for the European Trainee Program, because...
It is not only an excellent learning opportunity and the best possible start to a great career, but it is an amazing way to meet others from a multitude of different backgrounds that you share the entire trainee experience with and make lasting friendships.
Some final notes?
It is a great experience and I have learnt more about myself in the past 3 months than I have in my whole life. Stay strong through the adversities and make the most of the good times because there will be a lot of both.
