Ready, steady, go! Twenty-two graduates launch their careers with RCL FOODS!
The RCL FOODS Management Trainee Programme which was held in Durban from the 6th – 8th February’17 saw 22 talented young graduates buzzing with excitement at what was in store for them over the next three days.
CEO Miles Dally kick-started the on-boarding event and the experience of a lifetime began to unfold…
For this multi-disciplinary group of graduates, this was their first introduction to RCL FOODS as a business, via carousel presentations by the Group Executive team. Key workplace scenarios and processes were dramatised through an industrial theatre and the graduates got to experience our much-loved brands through a Culinary adventure and a fun marketplace immersion activity.
What makes RCL FOODS' Management Trainee Programme different from other corporate graduate programmes? "We don’t just offer our grads a place to learn, we nurture and support them to reach management level in 3-5 years" says Tasmin Coleman, Group Talent Acquisition Manager.
There is a significant investment in the process of accelerating the development of the Group’s future leadership and meeting transformation targets through structured developmental plans. “Our Learning & Development team is focused on developing a pipeline of talent that will produce tomorrow's leaders, starting today," says Melissa Anderson, Learning & Development Manager: Leadership Development.
With more than 19 000 employees dedicated to providing more food to more people, more often, RCL FOODS' ambition is "to build a profitable business of scale by creating food brands that matter". Being a part of our Management Trainee Programme is a dream come true for dynamic young professionals looking to be a part of a company that's going places with a purpose!
"Since the programme's inception four years ago, nearly 100 students are on their way to becoming leaders in our business. What better way to develop future leaders than by giving them an opportunity to grow, learn and most importantly lead?" says Tasmin.
