General Management Graduate Programme
We believe that for our business to be the best – and to grow sustainably – we need to develop the people who will lead that growth. We need the managers of tomorrow. Working on real projects from the outset, our global management trainee program is the first step on a global career. From your induction in St Louis (USA) to your end-of- program presentation, you’ll be treated as one of our future leaders. You’ll learn about running one of the world’s most successful businesses, and you’ll learn about where you will fit in best.
Primarily though, you will be learning about management – about how to be a leader in company that is intent on being and remaining a world-class organisation. And that includes learning from feedback – and understanding that we are a team, where individuals are never afraid to learn, to make mistakes, and to develop – as part of becoming great leaders.
You should graduate (i.e. complete your studies before the programme start date) with a Bachelor, Masters (or equivalent) degree from any of the following disciplines:
You also need to be fluent in the native language of the country you wish to work in, and English, to be eligible for this programme.
Market Visionaries Graduate Programme
Our dream is to Bring People Together For a Better World. It’s an ambition that fuels us to take brands into new markets, attract fresh customers, and break boundaries.
On our Market Visionaries Programme (MVP), you’ll have the opportunity to push our brands further by taking them to bigger and better markets, and introducing them to different audiences. Pride yourself on your sales pitch? You’re in the right place. Love being out in the field and meeting new customers? That’s what you get paid for. Think we could create better brand experiences? We’d love to hear your ideas. It’s an incredible opportunity to learn the business, take ownership, and deliver results fast.
You’ll need to be fluent in English as well as the native language of the country you wish to work in too, in order to be eligible for this program. Additionally you should hold a full driving license.
Supply Management Graduate Programme
Covering the brewing, packaging and delivery of our goods – it's where we combine growth, service and cost to give us a competitive advantage.
It’s also an area where we make a big difference to our impact on the environment – reducing water use, waste and greenhouse gas emissions. Supply allows us to make positive changes to the way we brew and produce beer, source the ingredients, and deliver effectively and efficiently.
Supply is a choice that will build your leadership, project and general management skills. Specifically you will learn the technical and practical challenges of our business – with the opportunities to improve on what we already do well and to introduce new ways to be the best.
You will have hands on experience – making the beers we are famous for. And it is a career that will take you around Europe and potentially the world.
You should graduate with a Bachelor, Masters (or equivalent) degree from any of the following disciplines:
Engineering (ideally Chemical, Mechanical, Production or Electrical)
Science (Bio-chemistry, micro-biology, brewing/food science or pharmacy).
You also need to be fluent in the native language of the country you wish to work in, and English, to be eligible for this program.
Fast Track Apprenticeship
If you have recently graduated and are looking to accelerate your career at a leading international business, you’ve come to the right place. The world of beer never stands still – and neither do we. That’s why we created our Fast Track Apprenticeship (FTA) – purpose-built to turn talented graduates into future leaders.
At the core of the FTA are two 6-month rotations, giving you hands-on experience in the operational side of our business. After a short induction to the world of AB InBev, you’ll get straight into your first placement.
On one of the 6-month rotations you’ll join our Logistics team, either working on ensuring that our beer reaches our customers in Europe on time and in full, or you’ll be managing export and import across the world. On the other rotation you’ll be working in Finance, either playing a crucial role in liaising with customers to manage payments; or working within our Procure-To- Pay (PTP) team where you will get a unique insight into how we work with our suppliers. In addition to your day-to- day role in the business, we’ll also give you the opportunity to shine by taking on specific projects and presenting your solutions to senior leadership.
With the choice of being based in either the vibrant city of Prague (Czech Republic) or Kharkiv (Ukraine),
you’ll learn fast, work hard, have fun and in just 12 months you could be leading a team of your own.
You have a university degree and no more than two years of work experience after graduating. More important than the subject you studied is your international mind-set, and the language skills to go with it.
If you are joining the program in Prague, to be eligible, an upper-intermediate level of English is essential along with a basic level of either Dutch, French or German.
For Kharkiv, next to an upper-intermediate level of English, you also need to be fluent in Russian. For both locations mobility across Europe is required.
Internship (UK, Netherlands, Belgium only)
8weeks – 1year
It’s a full time internship, with a chance for you to discover what it’s like to work in a top 5 FMCG company. You’ll be placed in the business to work on a real project over the course of 8 weeks minimum, and maximum of 1 year.
You’ll work in either – Marketing, Sales, Supply or Support, with defined objectives. Every week you get to meet up with your Project Sponsor (your line manager), every two weeks with your Interns Coordinator, and every month you’ll present to both.
Throughout internship, you will meet and work with senior managers – giving you insight and exposureto some of our key leaders. At the end of the program you’ll also present on the project you worked on – the challenge, action plan, results and benefits, and your own development. You will make this presentation to your Project Sponsor, your Intern Coordination, and a member of the ABI Management Committee.
At all times we’ll encourage you to take ownership of your internship, so success is very much down to you.
You can be in any year of study, studying for a Bachelor, Masters (or equivalent) degree. Ideally you’ll be studying for a degree in one of the following disciplines:
You’ll fit in best if you speak good English, are comfortable with data, you like to lead, and you’re motivated to achieve your dreams.

At Ford, we go further to make our cars better, our employees happier and our planet a better place to be. Great vehicles are great for drivers everywhere, and that’s the foundation of our business’s strength. To meet demand, Ford is in the midst of its most ambitious manufacturing expansion in 50 years. We’re increasing capacity in the United States and adding plants around the world.
Our work doesn’t stop with our products and our bottom line. An integral part of the Ford team’s DNA is ‘people serving people’. That’s why our global brand promise is called Go Further – we go further so you can.
We don’t just build cars at Ford. Our global community is a fundamental part of who we are, so we’re working to support hunger relief, encourage safe driving habits, introduce education innovations and much more.
