Applications for our Fast Track Apprenticeship 2018 intake are now open.

We produce and sell beer to the world, you would be surprised how much goes on behind the scenes. That's why we created our Fast Track Apprenticeship (FTA) - purpose-built to turn talented graduates into our future leaders. Our programme consists of two 6-month rotations, giving you hands-on experience in the operational side of our business. After successful completion of both rotations, you will be promoted to a leadership role in one of our Capability Centres.

So, what experience you will gain during your 12 months in the FTA Program? After a short induction to the world of AB InBev, you'll get straight into your first placement. You could join one of the following branches in our Solutions function:

  • Logistics Team. Working on ensuring that our beer reaches our customers in Europe on time and in full, or managing the export and import of our beers across the world.
  • Finance Team. Playing a crucial role in liaising with customers to manage payments or working within our Procure-To-Pay team where you will get a unique insight into how we work with our suppliers.
  • HR Services Team. Operating key HR processes like payroll or target setting all over Europe.

In addition to your day-to-day role in the business, we'll also give you the opportunity to shine by taking on specific projects and presenting your solutions to Senior Leadership.

During the program, you will participate in various leadership training sessions to give you the skills to be the leaders of the future. After your first leadership experience, you will have the opportunity to fast-track your career further in Europe or beyond. You will also have the opportunity to positively impact your environment by creating your own projects to support our Better World activities.

With the choice of being based in either the vibrant city of Prague (Czech Republic) or the historical city of Kharkov (Ukraine), you'll learn fast, work hard, have fun and in just 12 months, you could be leading a team of your own in one of these cities for another year.

What will you do during the programme?

 

What can you do once you've completed the programme?

Who is the programme right for?

Talented. Proactive. Ambitious. Curious. This is all about YOU. Where other people see problems, you see solutions. You're organised, with an eye for detail and a continuous drive to make processes work better for everyone.

You value structure but can think beyond it. You have excellent communication skills and are good at building and maintaining strong relationships with suppliers, customers, and colleagues alike. You're also not afraid to be hands-on to get the job done, take ownership of your projects from day one, and meet ambitious targets.

You have a university degree and no more than two years of work experience after graduating. More important than the subject you studied is your international mind-set, and the language skills to go with it.

If you are joining the program in Prague, to be eligible, an upper-intermediate level of English is essential, basic level of either Dutch, French, German or Spanish is a definite advantage. For Kharkiv, next to intermediate level of English, you also need to be fluent in Russian. For both locations mobility across Europe is required.

Does this sound like you? If so, apply now.

We're now accepting applications for our Fast Track Apprenticeship programme beginning in August 2018. Apply now.
