Start Your Adventure - Fonterra Graduate Programme


Closing Date : 02 Apr 2018

Kia Ora! I joined the Fonterra business graduate programme last year and now work at our state of the art office in Fanshawe Street, Auckland. 

d like to tell you about the reason why I joined Fonterra and encourage you to apply for our Fonterra Business Graduate Programme.

I joined because I wanted to make a difference. Our promise to the world is to take care of the health and wellbeing of our people and our communities, whilst securing the prosperity of our farmers and looking after the land. Fonterra has an enormous global reach with a number of career opportunities, so I was hungry to learn and join the 22,000 staff globally that make up this family. 

Our graduate programme has been running for over 40 years, and has even seen the success of many Fonterra individuals including members of our Senior Fonterra Management team.  

Fonterra offers an excellent training programme which will challenge your boundaries over the course of the 2 year programme. I loved moving around the country and experiencing the innovation and world leading technology Fonterra has to offer. 

It was important to me that I chose to start my adventure with the right people and what better way to do that than join a cooperative that shares the same values as me, whilst working towards a global purpose of being the worlds most trusted advisor of dairy nutrition. This means that Fonterra is owned by its farmer shareholders, so you really are making a difference. 

As with any adventure, I needed to be ready to embark on this journey and grasp how I could contribute to Fonterras achievements. Sign up to our Fonterra facebook page to learn more Fonterra Graduate Careers
