Job description

The Kraft Heinz European Trainee Programme (ETP) is a highly competitive development programme for candidates seeking an exciting leadership career with Kraft Heinz.

The Kraft Heinz European Trainee Programme:

  • A four and a half-month journey offering a unique chance to broaden your overall knowledge of how a multifaceted, multinational food company operates
  • Designed for future leaders who seek a performance based culture that is built on meritocracy: ambitious, hardworking, passionate employees who deliver results will be rewarded
  • Provides accelerated career opportunities and exposure to aspects of our business normally not seen so early in a career, including high exposure to senior leaders
  • Provides trainees with business support and mentorship throughout the programme

Your journey at Kraft Heinz:

  • Functional bootcamp (six weeks)
  • Business project (10 weeks)
  • Field sales bootcamp (two weeks)
  • Leadership and graduation (one week)
  • During a six-week functional bootcamp in the UK and the Netherlands you will get a hands-on induction into all the different functions to accrue the experiences you will need to be successful as a future leader within Kraft Heinz (training in people, legal, comms, sales, marketing, finance, operations and R&D)
  • This is followed by a real business project in one functional area. The project focuses on the development of key technical, business and leadership skills by completing high level assignments
  • After this bootcamp you start in field sales bootcamp in the UK, where you will learn everything about the importance of sales.
  • After four and a half months you will graduate and you will be placed into your first functional position
  • Your location will be defined together before the start of the programme. Your first role will be determined during the first four and a half months of the programme
  • Your career journey from that point forward is not governed by a set path and not limited to one function or tenure required in role
  • Promotions are given to those who deserve, based purely on meritocracy

What we will deliver to you:

  • High accountability – real autonomy
  • Real meritocracy – the best succeed
  • Goal setting – rigorous and aligned
  • Careers – promote from within
  • Winning – create a legacy of success

Our offer:
