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.
