Supply Chain Future Leader Graduate Programme 2024
Our two-year Supply Chain Future Leader graduate programme is designed to give you a 360 insight to our Supply Chain operations and what goes in to brewing some of the world’s favourite beers and ciders. During your placement with us, you’ll build on your leadership skills and fully immerse yourself into operational projects and management of people.
A bit about the role
Graduates have an important part to play in our future and we provide an ideal environment for individuals to develop, whilst feeling valued and having a fun whilst doing so. The Supply Chain Future Leader graduate programme offers structured rotations within multiple areas or functions (Brewing, Quality, Engineering, Customer Service and Logistics, Packaging, Health & Safety or Continuous Improvement) within a brewery where you will have opportunities to learn, develop and make a real difference to HEINEKEN.
Our 2024 graduate opportunities are based at our Tadcaster Brewery (near Leeds). You’ll need to be robust and adventurous, ready to relocate, if needed,and give it your best!
Who we’re looking for
If you are currently studying Business Management, Manufacturing, Supply Chain, Science, Logistics, or Brewing & Distilling, and on track for a 2:1 degree by September 2024, or you’ve just graduated we’d like to hear from you!
Why pick us?
“I have just finished my 2 years on the graduate programme. The recruitment process was brilliant and really felt personal to me. The assessment centre felt like it was designed to get to know my personality better, rather than a really daunting interview. My day to day working life is varied, with lots of different challenges, but also lots of support off many colleagues.
I have focused on and developed a number of key transferable skills such as conflict management, negotiation skills and self-confidence. Overall, the graduate programme has helped me experience multiple perspectives of the business, providing me with clear insight as to where I wish to work in my future career. Very happy with the way it has gone.” Varinder, 2nd Year Graduate Programme.
