Graduates

We're sorry, applications for our 2020 intake are now closed.  Please check back at the start of 2021, for details of next year's opportunities.  

Our ‘Future Leaders’ Development Programme offers exciting opportunities for you to develop and make a real difference in Premier Foods.

The content of the programme will be driven by the function/business unit you join, however all programmes will have a rotational element and enable you to gain a broad exposure to our business: providing you with the knowledge and experience you need for a fast tracked career.

Following a four week induction programme which will include one week at Head Office and three weeks based across our manufacturing sites, you'll work within the specific function/business unit you have been recruited for.

This period (which will be up to two years) includes a dynamic and structured development programme delivering a high level of autonomy and responsibility from the start, which will test your tenacity, innovation and desire to achieve results. After successful completion of the programme you can expect a first appointment to a role with significant responsibility.

From the start you'll have access to a suite of skills development courses including presentations skills, time management and communication skills, as well as sponsored professional development.
