One of the nation’s leading companies in the agri-food sector, Dunbia, is set to create new job opportunities after launching a graduate programme for 2016. 

The two-year development programme has been designed to give participants experience across all aspects of the company’s operations.

“Dunbia has invested heavily in developing our new ONE360 Graduate Programme, which aims to give successful candidates practical commercial experience across our company with ongoing mentoring and support, management development training and industry-recognised qualifications,” explained Steve Beck, Dunbia’s human resources director.

“We want to attract the best talent to our ONE360 Graduate Programme and develop them to become our managers of the future. We have also developed a dedicated graduate website, www.dunbiagraduates.com to allow candidates on the ONE360 programme to share their experiences and provide more information on the programme.”

With 11 sites across the UK and Ireland and 4,000 employees, Dunbia is one of the UK’s largest meat processors. Trading in 36 countries with more than 22,000 primary producers, the company has an annual turnover of £830 million.

“Dunbia’s ONE360 programme gives graduates an excellent opportunity to begin and grow a career in the agri-food industry which is worth £100bn to the UK economy,” commented the company’s executive director Jack Dobson.

“The opportunities within Dunbia are immense in areas that include production, new product development, procurement and agri research, IT, finance and sales. Following the two-year programme, graduates will continue to develop and progress a long-term career in the discipline most suited to their skills, which will be identified through the ONE360 programme.”

The application process for the graduate programme is now open, with a closing date of Sunday 14 February.
