Quality Management offers a varied, exciting and potentially high profile career across our whole Supply Chain, not just in our factories. We’re striving to delight both our consumers and customers.

That doesn’t just mean ensuring we comply with legal requirements and our own demanding quality standards, but driving quality improvements, reducing defects and eliminating waste. On this two year programme, you will work on a variety of challenges during two placements at our UK Head Offices and factories.

During a factory placement, you will be at the forefront in Production, working with multi-functional teams to analyse often complex quality problems, find solutions and influence people to make necessary changes. In Head Office you’ll be working on new approaches in our Quality Management System and leading the factories to make these improvements.
