"We are given real jobs as graduates but also get as much support as we require. Our development is expedited as we are entrusted with real responsibility from day one."
Graduate, Peterborough
"I've had some key opportunities to deliver large savings to the business and I have had exposure to product development projects across both brands in my business. I've also learned a lot about the importance of a strong and cohesive set of data to enable raw materials and packaging to be purchased more efficiently."
Procurement, Graduate, Brighton
"I manage several capital investment projects across our UK and Polish sites, which gives me great day-to-day variety. Each project affects a different area of the business so I get the opportunity to work with a wide range of people and grow my knowledge and understanding across all areas of the business."
Graduate, Leigh
"I am given a lot of responsibility and have been rewarded for my achievements with feedback and also an award at our procurement conference. My manager always keeps an eye on my workload so that it doesn't get too much and ensures the work I do will add value to my development."
Procurement, Graduate, London
"Every piece of work we're assigned is valuable to the business to some degree. You have a good amount of flexibility in what projects you can get involved in."
Entry level, Tilbury
"On the whole I'm very satisfied. I cover a lot of breadth across procurement and have a role that directly contributes to the must-wins of the organisation."
Procurement, Graduate, Peterborough

2016

"I'm working on a range of projects that impact not just the site I am based on but other international sites within ABF."
Supply Chain, Graduate, Manchester
"The quality of work I have been assigned has varied across the two years. While I am highly ambitious and can easily get frustrated with smaller and more menial tasks, I have learned that I need to earn the responsibility."
Graduate, Maidenhead
"Challenging work with the opportunity to progress early in your career. Exposure to senior levels through high priority projects. Clear objectives set out at the start of year."
Marketing, Graduate, London
"Real roles. You are not just in a role that has been created for you – it is a role that is necessary for the business to continue running and one where the ownership really sits with the work you are doing."
Supply Chain, Graduate, Peterborough
"I work with the national account manager on UK retailer accounts. This means real exposure to the external world of grocery and retail. I manage the online business for one retailer that I hold my own meetings for. I manage internal and external stakeholders on a daily basis, which makes the job really exciting. The only downside is that sometimes the role can be fairly heavy on the admin, but that's the nature of the job."
Graduate, Biggleswade
"I've been given good levels of responsibility and variety throughout the scheme and great exposure both internally and with customers. I've also been left to manage customer engagements myself, which is great. I've been responsible for driving our category message with a portfolio of customers and gaining trusted partner status with retailers so we can advise best practice within their categories."
Graduate, Home Counties
"My current day-to-day role is maintenance planner, which primarily involves scheduling work but also gives me time to understand the stores and purchasing sides of the department as well."
Graduate, London
"Mine is quite an administrative role. A lot of processes need to be completed both internally and externally for customers. This means less time for development and more time on internal process and admin, which, after a while, can become rather boring. You have to push very hard to get more opportunities outside of the day job."
Graduate, London
