MARS LEADERSHIP EXPERIENCE 

This programme is high-powered, right from the start and focuses on developing well-rounded leaders with unparalleled business experience, tomorrow’s leaders of Mars, Inc.. It’s a steep learning curve with enormous business exposure.

What will I be doing?
Over the three 12-month placements you’ll get a complete overview of our business, together with the freedom and responsibility to have a very real and very visible impact on it. The challenges will come thick and fast. And they will keep on coming. You’ll experience different markets, different functions, different teams, countries and products. We’ll work with you to clarify and support your career thinking and tailor your path through the program to best fit with your ambitions and our business needs. The program runs across a number of our Multisales organization countries. Every area of our business will be open to you. So you could be a Brand Manager in Marketing, an Account Manager in Sales or a Supply Chain project Manager in Logistics.
As one of our future leaders, you’ll be looking for ways to help us work better, faster and smarter. To stay one step ahead of the competition and to keep our products front of mind for our customers. You’ll learn to inspire confidence in others, to act in ways that achieve the best results for everyone, and as you do, you’ll take on more and more responsibilities and larger and larger projects. At the end of the program you’ll have learnt everything you need to fill and succeed in one of the 250 leadership roles in our business.

What is the Mulstisales organization and where will I be working?
Mars Multisales Europe and Southern Africa has more than 2500 associates across 53 countries. We’re a vital part of Mars Inc. And we play our part in the success of some of the world’s best loved brands.
Brands like PEDIGREE®, WHISKAS®, M&M’S®, SNICKERS®, UNCLE BEN’S® and many, many more. No surprise to learn, then, that we aim to attract exceptional people. People who thrive on the exciting challenge of building our business in dynamic markets right across the continent, from Portugal to the Baltic States.


In the first 12 months on the programme you will be based in your Home country (within the Multisales organisation) and this will act as your Home site - you will also sign off the program into your Home site. After a successful first and second year end-of-placement review you will be given opportunity to move to a different country and potentially different function, to work with different brands. 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 other support can I expect?
You’ll have ongoing support from your Line Manager, your mentor, who’ll be a senior manager, and a buddy, a recent graduate who’s ‘been there and done that’ before. You’ll also have mid-placement and end-of-placement development reviews. These give us the chance to check your progress, discuss your career direction and plan your ideal next placement based on this, our insight and the needs of the business.

Who are you looking for?
You’ll need to have achieved an Upper Second class Bachelors/Undergraduate degree in any discipline. Plus you’ll need to be fully mobile within Europe and Southern Africa.

We’re also looking for people that are:

  • Naturally collaborative & curious
  • Initiative & challenge takers
  • Accountable & results focused
  • Learners, growers & continuous improvers
