Job description

Kraft Heinz Vision

At Kraft Heinz, to be the best food company, growing a better world is more than a dream - it is our global vision. To be the best, we want the best - best brands, best practices and, most importantly, the best people.

  • 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 program.

  • 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 program. Your first role will be determined during the first four and a half months of the program.
  • 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.
