Supply Chain at Cereal Partners is a very wide ranging area, made up of lots of different teams, all involved at the start of a product’s life. From finding the ingredients through to getting the product into the hands of our customers and consumers, think whole grain to Shredded Wheat.
Keeping the conversation flowing between all the different parts of Cereal Partners, our suppliers and our customers, you’ll be problem-solving on-the-fly, thinking logically and putting those serious people skills of yours to use. Turning your specialist insight into solid plans, your dedication will help ensure our famous products reach the hands of consumers across the world.
Your training will see you hitting all the different parts of the company and all the different processes – it could see you helping source the best raw materials to organising the delivery of cereals to customers – so you get a full understanding of how it all works together. And you’ll put into practice everything you learn.
You’ll be based at Cereal Partners, Hertfordshire, with the potential for placements at our factory sites in Bromborough and Staverton, so you can experience factory supply chain first-hand. Getting involved in real projects across different areas of the business, you’ll talk to our customers and look at sales forecasting, all with a focus on sustainability, recycling and cost-effectiveness. It’ll be a packed couple of years made up of a variety of placements (6 to 12 months in length), but you’ll come away bursting with specialist know-how, learned from experienced professionals.
And there’s huge potential. supply xhain covers roles like Logistics (which is transport and warehousing), procurement (sourcing everything from recycled plastic to milk) and demand planning (figuring out how much we’re going to sell). The scope is massive.
We’re committed to improving people’s lives in everything we do. And that includes our employees. We want you to love your job and to feel rewarded for the contribution you make, so you can expect a competitive salary, plus all sorts of benefits. These include an Annual Bonus (as long as you meet certain criteria); Membership of the Cereal Partners Pension Plan; access to our Flexible Reward Scheme - where you can take advantage of the benefits that best suit you. Pretty good eh?
Please note that you can only make one application per annual recruitment intake, so do take time to consider what’s going to suit you best.

So if you’re just out of uni with a decent degree and are champing at the bit to put your big ideas into action, let’s chat. We think we might have a lot in common.
