If you are interested in understanding how your food goes from farm to fork you may want to consider a career in the food industry.

The Dawn Meats Graduate Programme provides a great opportunity to be exposed to all parts of our business from buying, the abattoir, our technical processes, sales and marketing. The ultimate goal is that you will become a key member of our commercial team managing key accounts in the UK and Europe.

The most important thing a graduate can do within our business is ask questions and learn – we are preparing you for a future successful career within a dynamic industry but it is essential that you understand our business and the market place.

You will be exposed to all elements of our business processes and will work on a variety of projects, and sometimes you will be shadowing experts within our field. Your desire to learn and adapt your skill set to new challenging environments will provide you with daily variety. Rotating around the various areas of our business you will gain a great understanding about our processes and procedures that will help you when you move into your end position.

After the rotations you will move across into the Sales function where you will be expected to take on some real responsibility. It will be down to you to look after some of our key accounts, examining everything from yields through to organising and coordinating transport and logisitics.

Success in our industry is driven by attitude and aptitude. We require a level of numeracy and analytical capability but you must also be able to: 

  • Problem solve
  • Spot opportunities
  • Challenge convention
  • Build relationships internally and with customers
  • Influence and negotiate at a senior level
  • Drive innovation.

A degree in business, agriculture or food is beneficial, but not essential. Strong analytical and numerical skills are key for this role.

To be considered for a great opportunity with a growing company apply today.

Assessment centres will take place in June.


Discovery Graduates are the retained managing consultants.  All applications will be processed through Discovery.  We regret due to the high volume of applications we receive; only those successful on application will be contacted for interviews.  In the event that you are unsuccessful for this opportunity, we may still be able to help you and we will retain your application and consider you for other opportunities.
