You will undertake a series of stretching commercial, manufacturing and engineering assignments within our Company, providing you with the opportunity to broaden your global business perspective.

It’s almost impossible to predict the future with any certainty. However, it’s safe to say that after completing the intensive graduate traineeship programme, you’ll be fully equipped with all the expertise and experience you need to take on a leadership position.

Just like there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to the training and development we offer, the role you move into will also be based on your individual performance, aspiration and the potentials we see in you. Having said that, it’s important to stress the fact that involvement in this programme does not in itself guarantee a leadership position. Instead, we’ll be keeping a close eye on your performance throughout the programme to ensure you’re exhibiting the necessary high performance behaviours. There are no limits to success here, so it’s up to you to prove yourself.
