At Britvic we’re on a journey to become the most dynamic soft drinks company. As one of the UK’s leading players in the FMCG market we pride ourselves on setting high standards, being courageous and pushing ourselves to think outside the bottle.

We offer consumers a range of family favourite and global premium brands such as Robinsons, Tango, J2O, R. White’s & London Essence, as well as bottling for PepsiCo here in the UK. We exist to help people enjoy life’s everyday moments.

Our mission is simple to create a better tomorrow for our people and our planet. Through our strong values of ‘act with pace’, ‘own it’, ‘be courageous, ’we care’ and ‘stronger together’ we encourage all of our people to take risks in pursuit of our shared ambition and their personal goals and think outside of the bottle every day throughout everything we do.

About the role

We are now accepting applications for our 2-year Commercial Graduate Programme beginning in October 2024. As a graduate on our two-year rotational programme, you’ll start on one of our big accounts with either retail or hospitality customers and then move to a second placement which could be in:

  • Account management
  • Sales
  • E-commerce
  • Category
  • Marketing

We can guarantee that every day will be different and exciting - working across the sales function with our biggest customers both ‘out of home’ – restaurants/petrol stations/pubs and clubs and ‘in home’ with some of the UK’s biggest retailers and grocery stores. You will manage relationships on a day-to-day basis and whilst this is a graduate programme you will gain great exposure to every area of the sales function whilst being supported and encouraged to learn.

Our Commercial Graduate Programme is designed to immerse you in all elements of commercial account management, working cross functionally and giving you the opportunity to develop and perfect your learning and skillset over time.

Whilst we would prefer you have some experience of a fast-paced consumer goods company, above all you will need to have a passion and hunger to achieve and able to demonstrate that you have amazing interpersonal skills and be a team player with a desire to learn, whilst also being comfortable dealing with numbers.

Your role supports our Account Managers in building and managing their business plans internally and externally, therefore strong commercial awareness and an eye for detail is key.

What we're looking for

Whether you’re recently graduated/ about to graduate or are already working in FMCG sales, to be a successful Commercial Graduate we’re looking for people who are well organized and will thrive within a team environment.

Ideally you will also be able to demonstrate the following:

  • A degree in any discipline
  • Excellent communication and social skills
  • Evidence of passion and achievements in academic and/or non-academic activities
  • Demonstrated leadership skills and strong analytical capability
  • A desire to succeed and ultimately win!

In return we can offer you a competitive salary, the opportunity to work as part of a fully supportive team and a flexible working environment that is designed to ensure that you are happy and healthy.

Following a telephone interview, you will be invited to attend an assessment centre day where you will be required to present and will also have the opportunity to meet some of the individuals already doing the role and ask any questions you may have.

We believe we are stronger together and that’s why we’re committed to providing equal opportunities to all applicants and employees. We know that by building a truly inclusive environment where everyone feels celebrated, safe and respected - diversity and wellbeing will naturally thrive.

All applicants must have the right to work in the UK. Unfortunately we are currently unable to provide sponsorship for these roles.
