Job description

Grow your career with famous brands.
Great people are at the heart of everything we do and are critical to our ability to succeed and win in our diverse markets. Human Resources (HR) is focused on helping the ABF Grocery businesses to do this as well as they possibly can; recruiting great talent, supporting the development of skills and behaviours, creating the climate and culture to enable high levels of performance… the list goes on.

We’re really excited to be running a HR graduate scheme within our Grocery businesses. Over 24 months, you’ll get the opportunity to spend 12 months in two different businesses, experiencing HR from both a Supply Chain/Operations and Commercial perspective. You will gain a wide range of experiences, increasing and broadening your knowledge within the HR function and the wider business context in the FMCG industry. During your scheme, you’ll receive core management training alongside HR-specific development and have the opportunity to start a fully-funded CIPD Level 7 qualification.

If you’re passionate about people, an excellent communicator, and want to support teams and the business in continuing to grow and develop, then this could be the perfect graduate scheme for you. Visit our website for more details and to apply.

Our culture is very down-to-earth so having confidence without ego is important to us, too. Our graduates come from all sorts of different backgrounds, with different degrees and interests but alignment with ABF's values and an ability to demonstrate the appropriate competencies are the key elements to success on our schemes.
