The Dream Big Graduate Programme (NZ)

Goodman Fielder’s purpose is simple – to create food that people love. Operating in the FMCG industry means no two days are the same. The pace is fast, the work is diverse and our various business functions need to work closely together to ensure our fantastic consumer products are on the shelf every day and top of mind for New Zealanders.

The Goodman Fielder Dream Big Graduate Programme runs for two years, and you will be supported every step of the way as you explore and learn about our business. You will gain valuable on-the-job training, which will give you true insight into how a large FMCG manufacturing company like Goodman Fielder works. You could be leading a team at one of our manufacturing plants one day, then building relationships with key customers the next.
