Graduates applying to work at Procter & Gamble (P&G) should possess strong leadership skills, according to one senior figure.
Charlotte Dean-Hughes, the firm's talent supply leader for the UK, Ireland and the Nordics, discussed the companys recruitment efforts in the UK, where it hires roughly 60 to 80 new recruits into management-level graduate jobs per year, on top of about 50 to 60 interns who will work at P&G during the summer.
In an interview with Recruiter, she explained that individuals with the right attitude will receive plenty of training and have the chance to come into a "real job with real responsibilities".
"The biggest thing we're looking for is leadership - whether they have demonstrated that in a society or sports team, or doing voluntary work," she told the news provider.
"[We look for] someone who's shown that they have vision to change something, motivate people to follow them and really make something happen, and get some actual results."
Ms Dean-Hughes added that the company is committed to recruiting graduates from "all sorts of backgrounds".
P&G manufactures a wide range of consumer goods and is currently the fourth most profitable organisation in the world.
