Deadline: February 9, 2018
Applications are open for the Heineken International Graduate Programme 2018. Are you a graduate and ready to really Go Places? Are you prepared to work in three different countries in the HEINEKEN world over three years? Apply now!
Heineken International Graduate Programme will provide you with a truly global experience, designed for our fully internationally mobile leaders of tomorrow that will add value to our business from day 1. Your journey will begin with the first of three one-year assignments, exploring our operating companies, different cultures and experiencing different challenges within a specific function.
You need to be learning agile, self-sufficient, open to feedback, humble but also adventurous enough to take ownership wherever you are, standing true to our HEINEKEN values with a passion for quality, enjoyment of life and respect for people and for our planet.
Just like all of their employees, learning in the IGP is in line with their learning philosophy; 70% happens on the job, 20% is through coaching/mentoring, and 10% is by attending formal trainings.
- You will begin the journey at our Head Office in Amsterdam where you will be introduced to the HEINEKEN history, products and values, and start meeting the people that make the company great!
- With three one-year assignments you will have challenging and contrasting learning experiences within a Function. Every year, you explore a new country, start a new job, and learn a different culture, professionally and personally. This will test your learning agility and provide you with unforgettable experiences.
- Their leaders commit themselves to support you throughout the programme; each Graduate is assigned to a Senior Manager that acts as their mentor. Often, long-term valuable relationships begin here!
- They’ll invite you several times back to Amsterdam to meet your IG peers and take part in stimulating workshops, developing your self-awareness amongst other leadership traits. Your success is important during the programme, and also after the programme, so these trainings are developed for long term benefit.
