Mars R&D Leadership Experience at Mars Inc.

Posted 2 weeks ago


You’ll get to work on world-famous brands and have the chance to see the results of your technical expertise, entrepreneurial spirit and fantastic communication skills on the shelves. With our support, you can expect to progress rapidly. In a few years, you could be anything from a technical programme leader or senior scientist through to a process deployment expert or product developer.

What will I be doing?  

The programme runs for three years during which you’ll complete three yearlong placements. This will expose you to the key dimensions of a dynamic R&D organisation within a Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) global leader. You’ll have the opportunity to experience our Chocolate or Petcare business units working on new concepts, ground breaking science & technologies and manufacturing solutions in both regional and global R&D teams.

What support can I expect?  

In exchange for your drive and enthusiasm, we offer you the chance to explore all aspects of R&D. We will support the development of your science skills in a commercial business environment that rewards creativity and personal responsibility. Whatever you do, you will be working alongside creative and passionate people from all areas of the business. You might also find yourself working with agencies and university research teams to get the most out of your projects. You’ll get additional support internally too; firstly from a senior mentor who can help guide and steer your development, and also from a buddy – a graduate who’s ‘been there and done that’ before.

Where will I be working? 

You will be based at our Confectionery site in Veghel with possible rotations to other sites outside your home country.

What are the criteria?  

A science related degree.

Start of the Programme – September 2019.
