The Company

Mars®, Uncle Ben’s®, Whiskas®, M&M’s®, Dolmio®, Pedigree®, Maltesers®, Extra®… these are just some of the global brand names which make up our $40 billion portfolio, making us one of the world’s largest consumer goods companies.

Still a family-run business and privately owned, Mars is able to invest its profits back into developing the organisation. This means graduates have the freedom to think differently and the ability to do things that convention wouldn’t ordinarily allow. In fact, Mars graduates get all the support, autonomy and responsibility they need to become a big name in their own right.

Whether your talents lie in research and development, engineering, finance or procurement, our renowned development programmes offer responsibility right from the very first day. All of our programmes will give you a real job from day one, which will allow you to expand your knowledge whilst stretching and developing your talent, potentially discovering skills you never knew you had. Structured around a rigorous training curriculum and strong individual mentoring relationships, our programmes offer you the opportunity to take control of your career while benefiting from our years of experience in developing some of the UK’s leading managers.
