Graduate Management Development Programme

Graduate Development Programme

Aim High!

Kite Packaging’s first Graduate Development Programme was launched in 2015. We look for candidates to progress in a dynamic, entrepreneurial, and 100% employee-owned company.

We specifically look for University Graduates who want to ‘Aim High’ and progress in a business that has gone from zero when it was founded in 2001, to one of the biggest players in the packaging industry.

Want to know what it's like to join Kite as a Graduate? You can read our Graduate Scheme Interviews on Facebook!

Outline of Programme

We like to think of our graduate scheme as ‘The Real Apprentice’.

This is because unlike many graduate job programmes that are run by HR departments, Kite’s Programme is the personal passion of Kite Packaging’s Chairman, Bruce McInnes!

This Graduate Programme gives a unique opportunity to interface at a senior level within the company, and be provided with valuable experience and support. Graduates report to, or are mentored by, a Kite Managing Partner, who will provide insight in to the operational side of Kite Packaging, and supports candidates throughout the process.

The programme runs over a two year period, and in that time graduates participate in a modular programme, this is designed to give exposure to a wide range of Kite’s functions and activities.

For each module, graduates work at a different Regional Distribution Centre and/or department every four months, receiving individual assessments at the end of each rotation. This will give a feel for all aspects of Kite as a business, and help decide where their skills lie.

A permanent position is not guaranteed at the end of the Programme, however if candidates are successful they could be fast-tracked to a permanent Senior Management position.
