"After completing my graduate programme, I joined the operations team working specifically in improvement projects. I developed the specific skillsets through external training and project work, working with senior leadership to put more emphasis on Process Engineering, and Continuous Improvement in the manufacturing environment." - Eliot Ball, Senior Process and CI Engineer


Successful applicants for our graduate programme will undertake a 2-year structured programme designed to give you a comprehensive understanding of the operational demands within the business before entering into your first career role. As a Graduate Trainee you will work within our Manufacturing Operational areas and gain experience in the following areas: Strategic thinking, Production & Manufacturing, Planning, Quality Assurance, Process Engineering, Continuous Improvement, Facilities, Maintenance & Engineering, local HR, Environmental Stewardship, Health & Safety and Logistics/Distribution.

You will be based primarily at our head office near Bath in Melksham, Wiltshire but there may be the opportunity to travel and work in some of our U.S. sites through the duration of the programme.

Through continuous reviews and feedback, and with the help of your own personal mentor, you will develop an excellent understanding and working knowledge of the organisation’s business practices. This will enable you to create the highest level of efficiency possible through the utilisation of labour, materials and other resources, taking you from entry-level position to specialist, expert and beyond, in a company which is growing fast and offers opportunity for progression.

After the programme, our past graduates have gone on to take important roles within the company, you can read about their experiences on our website. You will be taking on an exciting challenge in the operations side of the business but there is potential for a lateral move into other areas of the business as the company continues to grow.
