welcome to the KraftHeinz 2017 graduate program

KraftHeinz is one of the world’s leading food companies. Our products are consumed in more than 200 countries, and chances are you probably have a few of our brands sitting somewhere in your kitchen. But great products alone haven’t made us successful; our people have. Which is why we’re looking for the pick of the crop in graduate talent. After all, your success is our success.

Instead of specific degrees from particular disciplines, we look for fresh thinkers – graduates who are entrepreneurial, self-motivated and enjoy working collaboratively. Future leaders who can help us become the world’s best food company and, in so doing, help us grow a better world. It’s a big ambition, and the reason we need talent like you.

With a company the size of ours, the KraftHeinz Graduate Program provides a springboard to a large range of opportunities both within Australia and around the globe. Based in both Melbourne and Auckland, this 12-month accelerated program gives successful applicants the foundations they need to succeed in a world-class organisation like ours.

In week one you’ll receive a classroom style induction with each of our business functions, each taking you through their area of expertise. Our functions include:

Sales Marketing Manufacturing Logistics Planning/Operations Procurement
Finance Quality Research & Development Human Resources Legal

For the six weeks that follow you’ll be rotated through these functions, giving you a unique overview and understanding of how the organisation operates.

Once you’ve completed your rotations you’ll be placed into the business area best suited to our needs and your capabilities. And for the remainder of the year, you’ll work as any other KraftHeinz employee would, with set objectives including a challenging business improvement project.

what makes a Kraftheinz graduate?

I enjoyed the functional immersion across all parts of the business – the opportunity to explore how they all come together to make the business work is just amazing. Through the program, I also got to know many leaders in the business, including the CEO!

During the program you are exposed to each aspect of KraftHeinz allowing you to gain an understanding of how everything fits together. You also have the advantage of meeting a wide range of people within the business who are all committed to your learning and development. This is a unique program with real responsibility and opportunity from day one.


The unique opportunity to rotate throughout each and every department is a very valuable experience, especially for a graduate that is new to the workforce. You are exposed to new areas, you learn so much about the business as well as about yourself and where you want to go.

The KraftHeinz grad program is a great way to accelerate your career. It gives you a head start in a large multinational business which rewards innovation, dedication, and ownership. The only limit to how far it takes you, is how big you want to dream.
