Job description

Hello here newly graduated young professional! Do you want to kickstart your career? Then this Management Traineeship is the right place for you! My name is Laura Dijcks. I work at Hire from the Netherlands. We have a partnership with the international company for which I am currently recruiting a trainee in the UK. 

As a trainee, you will join one of the top international companies operating out of Sunderland-Malton-Hull-Norfolk-Suffolk. This company is all about meat processing. For human consumption, animal feed and pharmaceutical products. This company employs around 10,000 people worldwide and operates from around 26 locations. So you'll be joining a lot of passionate colleagues, both in the UK and internationally.

Now it's probably time to reveal what we are actually looking for ;-). We are looking for a Management Trainee for the Operations Business.

During your 12-month Management Traineeship, you will travel to all their locations in the UK and across Europe. This will introduce you to the entire production processes of the company, as well as purchasing and sales. Ofcourse, you will also be introduced to the various management areas and develop management skills such as leadership with the aim of advancing to a key position within the company at the end of the programme. As a trainee, you will really get to know the organisation inside out!

During the traineeship, you will be guided by a tutor and a mentor so that you can get the best out of yourself and your development path. You will visit production environments, subsidiaries and companies in the meat processing industry and, of course, customers. During this time, you will take on projects independently and as you progress through the scheme given more and more responsibility preparing you for the unique working environment!
