Forget back office finance. This is about more than just crunching the numbers. As part of the Mars Finance Leadership Experience, you’ll be integrated into the business, working as a co-pilot, offering advice and making recommendations that will be highly valued. Ultimately we are looking for future leaders in Finance and we hope that you will be one of them. 

What will I be doing?
The programme consists of three 12-month placements working in supply finance, demand finance and financial control. Each placement is a real job with high-value responsibilities. You could be working at any of our sites and in any of our categories (Confectionery, Petcare or Food). And you’ll spend one year working in Europe. So you’ll get enormous business exposure and have invaluable opportunities to develop your skills, experience and management style.

What support can I expect?
We’ll support you to gain the prestigious CIMA qualification, give you the flexibility to choose your preferred learning method, and provide generous study leave to help you prepare and pay all your fees. Throughout the programme you’ll have support from a mentor – a senior manager, and buddy – a graduate who’s ‘been there and done that’ before. And when the time comes for your all-important international experience, our exceptional support package will provide everything you need to settle into your new environment.

Where will I be working?
In the first 12 months on the programme you will be based in your Home country (in our Dublin office) and this will act as your Home site. After a successful first year end-of-placement review you will be given opportunity to move to 
another European country in any of our categories (Chocolate, Petcare or Food) ensuring you get the invaluable international experience you need to make it to the top. Third year of the program will be in your Home Country again. We will provide full financial support with your moves and living abroad. It is important that you are fully mobile for this programme and is something you should consider before applying.

What is the criteria?
You will need to have 2:1 degree or above in a Finance/Business related discipline.
