Responsibilities

  • The Scheme is 18 months in duration and is based in our St Albans office in Hertfordshire
  • It starts in September on the same date as all our other Graduates (this is key as you all join as a cohort)
  • You will then spend 3 months with ‘Reach’ (our field sales team), learning about our customers, our Brands and how and why our consumers buy our products. We will issue you with a car for these 3 months, so you will need to be able to drive.
  • You will then have two head office placements to give you a broad understanding of the commercial function at Premier Foods. Placements can be in any of these areas: Category Management, Commercial Planning, Online Trading, International, Customer Marketing or our Own Label team.
  • Assuming you perform and achieve the standard we expect, at the end of the scheme we will promote you to Customer Account Exec, Category Exec or another suitable role that matches your skills.
