Brewing is not just a job, it’s a passion. Applications for the SMT programme will be open from 1/9/2021 until 30/11/2021.
At AB InBev, Challenge Accepted isn’t just a phrase; it’s a mindset. That’s because we are the world’s largest brewer, with iconic brands like Bud, Stella Artois or Corona.
We are a team of curious individuals who see every challenge as a new opportunity to do something incredible. We are resourceful people who thrive under pressure and take ownership of our success. Because we are owners, we take results personally. We dream big, take on new challenges and push the boundaries of what’s possible.
As a Supply Management Trainee you will cover the entire supply chain from farm to fridge – it’s where we combine growth, service and cost to give us a competitive advantage.
You will be based in our breweries or logistics operations, where you will have hands-on experience in producing the beers we are famous for, learning first-hand both the technical and practical challenges that affect different departments, including Logistics, Quality, Packaging, Brewery Operations and People – so we can make positive changes to the way we brew and produce beer, source the ingredients, and deliver to our customers effectively and efficiently.
The 6 month programme is designed to build your leadership, project and general management skills, and you will have opportunities to help improve the way we work. As the programme is focused on the supply chain process, you will complete projects across our 4 German breweries with a final position in one of these locations (Beck´s Brewery in Bremen, Spaten-Franziskaner-Löwenbräu Brewery in Munich, Diebels Brewery in Issum, Hasseröder Brewery in Wernigerode)
Who are we looking for:
As the leading global brewer, we are committed to bringing people together for a better – and more equal – world. A more equal world starts when everyone can thrive. At AB InBev we value the diversity of cultures, perspectives, skills and experiences within our workforce and we strongly encourage women, people of colour, LGBTQ+ individuals, people with disabilities, members of ethnic minorities and foreign-born residents to apply.
If you have an entrepreneurial spirit, be results-driven and have undertaken some form of leadership position either inside or outside of university you might be a good fit for the SMT programme. You also need to be fluent in the native language of the country you wish to work in, and English, to be eligible for this programme.
You should graduate (before September 2022 and no more than two years prior) with a Bachelor, Masters (or equivalent) degree from any of the following disciplines: Engineering (ideally Chemical, Mechanical, Production or Electrical), Natural Sciences (e.g. Physics, Chemistry, Bio-Sciences), Brewing or Food Science or Supply Chain Studies. You should also have no more than 2 years of professional experience (internships/volunteers/student jobs not included).
Please note you will need a valid visa/work permit to be eligible for the programme in the country you are applying for.
Please be advised that you will only be considered for the first application you submit, therefore please make sure you are completely happy with your choice as this decision is final.
There is no need to upload a cover letter – this will not affect your application.
What can you expect from us:
In this role, as well as having the potential to transform your career, you'll also play an important role when it comes to strengthening the communities we serve, building a better, more inclusive and equal world. You will get the support and coaching you need to succeed. We are a meritocracy, with plenty of room for growth and development, so you know your hard work will be rewarded. We encourage you to dream big and go after your goals.
