About Mars

Think Maltesers®, M&Ms®, Uncle Ben’s®, Pedigree®, Whiskas®, Extra® and Orbit®, some of the nation’s best-loved and well-known brands. Think the world’s third-largest food company with international operations across the world. Know what makes Mars special? Think again.

Sure, Mars is one of the world’s leading food companies, but it’s more like a community than a corporate – because it’s still a private, family-owned business built up of a Mars family of associates. Our mission? To approach business with our Five Principles - Quality, Responsibility, Mutuality, Efficiency and Freedom - at the heart of everything we do. We are motivated by the same purpose; to work together today for a better future tomorrow.

Let’s take on tomorrow together
The culture at Mars is relationship-driven – and it’s how these relationships are built that’s most important. Collaborating with others is key to getting things done. Mars encourages open communication as this builds relationships of trust and respect.

Let’s develop for a better future
Mars want to stretch and challenge associates every day to help them reach their full potential. So they take learning and development seriously – it makes good business sense for Mars to have people performing at the top of their game. With great managers, mentors, coaches and peers, graduates will be supported the whole way. And they will support other associates on their journey too.

Let’s work for the world we want
At Mars, graduates are offered an unrivalled opportunity to make a difference in their roles from day one. Mars wants everything they do to matter – from the smallest thing to the biggest – and Mars wants their work to make a positive difference to customers, suppliers, associates and the world as a whole. Graduates will have endless support to develop both personally and professionally, creating a start to an exciting and fulfilling career.

A Mars career opens up an exciting world of opportunities. Whether you’re looking for a dynamic career path, or if you want to become an expert in your field - the possibilities are endless. Spanning different geographies, business segments and functions, wherever we find ourselves throughout the 80+ countries we operate in, our mission and sense of community is global; to work together today for a better future tomorrow.

At Mars, your tomorrow starts today.
