Kite Packaging Launches 2nd Graduate Development Programme

Kite Packaging Launches 2nd Graduate Development Programme

Applications Now Open for our 2016 Graduate Programme we like to think of as ‘The Real Apprentice’

Following on from the successful launch of the Programme last year, Kite Packaging has officially announced that applications for its 2nd ‘Graduate Development Programme’ are now open for 2016.

The two-year Programme, targeted at impressive individuals looking to ‘Aim High’ after University will commence in August 2016 and will again be run by Kites Chairman Bruce McInnes.

The 100% employee-owned company will provide Graduates with a chance to experience various aspects of the business, in different locations on a four month rotational basis. It is ideal for someone who wants to be in business but is not 100% sure of the area they want to focus on. Although a permanent position at Kite is not guaranteed on completion of the Programme, candidates who impress will be fast-tracked into Senior Management positions.

Kite is looking for real go-getters, fresh from University with the ambition and talent to succeed in our entrepreneurial and rapidly expanding business. Candidates will need to show their ability to quickly create a rapport and demonstrate they have excellent leadership qualities, as all candidates will be pushed to deliver real results as part of their own development on the Programme.

Kite Packaging are looking to recruit 5 Graduates, who will each be supported and given exposure to a wide range of Kite’s business functions and operations. Some of the areas Graduates will experience include sales, marketing, purchasing, logistics and legal compliance. The candidates will move location after each module throughout the two year Programme, and will report directly to a Managing Partner at Kite.
