EXPIRY NOTICE: This job has now expired and will not be accepting any more applications.

This is a fantastic opportunity for IT graduates to learn our business from top to bottom; we will give you responsibility and varied IT projects from day one; and because you will be part of the graduate scheme your development will be both technical and personal. The aim of the scheme is for us to develop our future managers and business leaders.

What do ABP do?

ABP are the leading supplier of beef and lamb products in the UK. Through our fresh and frozen divisions we are a preferred supplier to major retailers and food service companies. As a company we have a down-to-earth attitude - both in the way we approach a problem and the way we interact with others.

Where do you come in?

Graduate Management trainees will move through every aspect of our company over a 20 month period in order to gain a full understanding of the business. This knowledge will become invaluable as you progress and begin to make strategic decisions.

Ultimately we are developing you to become an IT specialist. A role in IT in the food industry is varied and often innovative. You could be researching new software; finding solutions to equipment issues; improving data capture from our machinery; project managing a software upgrade; or any number of practical projects which will have real impact on our business.

The main office will be in Birmingham; however you will be travelling across the UK to visit sites and run projects at their facilities.

Past intakes on the scheme now hold many of the most senior posts in the company. The scheme is an excellent platform for promotion and a fast track for high levels of responsibility.

What do you need to demonstrate?

We are looking to spot our future managers, so we are interested in your potential to lead and to motivate.

This could be a great opportunity for you if you have a degree in:

- Computing; IT; ICT; Information Technology; Computer Science; Or Computer Systems Engineering

You will have a good academic background (minimum of 2:2 degree) however; you may have a more hands-on background or work experience.

You'll be successful in this post if you can combine your technical knowledge with good team working, good communication, and a positive attitude.

Due to the varied projects and site visits it is essential that you have a UK Driving License and you are keen to travel and stay away from home during projects.

If you are successful we will be legally required to ensure you are eligible to work in the UK. Before you apply please check your eligibility.

Discovery Graduates is our retained Managing Consultancy. All applications will be processed through Discovery.

Discovery Graduates believe that every graduate is capable of getting a good graduate job given the right support, advice and training and we only work with companies who recognise the value that the right graduate can bring to their business.
