Market Visionaries Programme (Sales Trainee)
Develop your sales pitch, meet new customers and create better brand experiences – so you can take our beers further.
AB InBev is the world’s leading brewer. We produce over 400 beers, including some of the world’s best known brands like Budweiser®, Stella Artois® and Corona®, as well as international brands Becks and Hoegaarden.
Pride yourself on your sales pitch? Love being out in the field and meeting new customers? Think we could create better brand experiences? Our Market Visionaries Programme gives you the opportunity to push some of the world’s most famous beers further – by taking them to bigger and better markets, bringing them to different audiences, and introducing new variants.
Our Market Visionaries Programme is an 18 month programme with a huge emphasis on field sales, giving you the confidence, training and communication skills necessary to sell in anything from new products to great ideas.
After an initial training session, you’ll spend 18 months in either On-trade sales (pubs, bars, clubs) or Off-trade sales (supermarkets, corner shops, retailers). Both require you to be out in the field, finding new customers, negotiating deals with business owners, and looking for ways to activate our brands and grow volume. In addition, you’ll also have a 6-month marketing project to complete on top of your sales role to help you apply what you’re learning.
It’s an intense programme that challenges you to improve and innovate every day, but it also offers amazing training from our top people, and it’s designed to help you build the career you want. If you really impress us throughout the programme, you’ll be able to apply for your first managerial role within AB InBev.
So if you’re talented, ambitious, innovative and proactive, with a flair for communication and relationship building, our Market Visionaries Programme is right for you. As the programme is field-based, you’ll be expected to be mobile, and you may be based in a different area in your region. And as most of the job consists of selling in new products and connecting with customers, you’ll need to be fluent in English as well as the native language of the country you apply to work in.
Start date: February 2017 and September 2017
