Kimberly-Clark and its well-known global brands are an indispensable part of life for people in more than 175 countries. Every day, nearly a quarter of the world's population trust K-C brands and the solutions they provide to enhance their health, hygiene and well-being. With brands such as Kleenex, Andrex and Huggies, Kimberly-Clark holds No. 1 or No. 2 share positions in 80 countries, and employs 42,500 employees.

This role could lead to the opportunity to return on our Graduate Programme and continue your Supply Chain career.
