ARYZTA is now accepting applications for the 2016 intake of its European Graduate Programme. The Graduate Programme forms a key part of ARYZTA’s Talent Strategy, and all graduates are given a real role with real responsibility from Day One. A great emphasis is placed on building leadership and functional capability which will ensure that we are growing talent from the point of career entry to meet our future business needs. As well as support from their Line Managers on the job, each Graduate is also assigned a Mentor who provides offline support in developing the knowledge, skills and behaviours necessary to be successful in ARYZTA.

ARYZTA is proud to be the number 1 frozen bakery supplier in Europe, and the Graduate Development Programme is an 18 month programme which places graduates in real roles across our European businesses. Opportunities may be available in functional areas including:

  • New Product Development
  • Accounting and Finance
  • Supply Chain
  • Sales
  • Marketing
  • Operations
  • Engineering
  • Procurement
  • Quality
  • IT
  • Human Resources

As graduates are hired into genuine and valued roles, the functions recruited for can vary year on year, and all guarantee un-rivalled, hands on experience in a fast paced, dynamic environment.

As well as building their functional expertise on the job, Graduates build their leadership skillset through participation in the Graduate Management Development Programme run in partnership with the IMI in Dublin. The Graduate Management Development Programme covers key modules, such as strategy, project management, negotiation & influencing skills, finance and operations management.

What We Look For

We are always looking for great talent to develop through our Graduate Programme, and work hard to ensure that this provides you with a tangible opportunity to progress at pace in a vibrant, expanding global organization. Many of our leadership team have achieved their current roles through advancing their careers within ARYZTA.

Passion, integrity and an entrepreneurial spirit are at the core of our business, and we are looking for graduates who are:

  • Team players;
  • Flexible with excellent interpersonal and communication skills;
  • Proven self-starters with a drive and determination to succeed;
  • Commercially aware with a global mindset.

As this is a European Graduate Programme, flexibility and mobility to work across any of our European operations is a key requirement. Fluency in a second European language for example French, German or Polish may be a distinct advantage

Our Graduate Programme is an integral part of our growth strategy. Upon successful completion of our 18 month programme, a permanent role will be offered. This is just the beginning….
