If you want to join an ever-expanding international business, and you’re looking to reach the highest levels of the commercial world then the DCC Graduate Programme is the perfect choice.

A FTSE 100 company employing circa 10,500 employees operating across 15 countries and with revenue of £10.6 billion last year, we provide international sales, marketing, distribution and business support services in the UK, Continental Europe and Ireland.

Ours is a hugely diverse organisation and the fact that we are growing rapidly through organic and acquisitive growth means there are always new challenges and learning opportunities for you to enjoy.

One intensive development experience.

Our programme is designed to turn talented, ambitious graduates into future leaders of DCC. The DCC Graduate Programme offers you an opportunity to work in up to three different companies, divisions and countries on a rotational basis over the course of the two year programme.

Alongside your on-the-job training, there will be regular learning and development opportunities and we will also provide funding for you to gain a professional qualification. You will be supported throughout the programme by your Line Manager, a dedicated Coach, a Graduate Buddy, your Graduate Programme Subsidiary Contact and of course, the Graduate Programme team.

Make an impact in a fast-paced commercial environment.

As a Sales graduate you will be given the opportunity to gain international experience in a fast–paced and exciting environment. You will be required to become rapidly acquainted with different business models across a number of different Sales functions across DCC’s businesses whilst also developing strong customer relationships and gaining in depth product knowledge. Our businesses are sharply focussed on strong commercial performance and the results of your contribution will add real value to the Sales functions you are placed with. 

Typical projects you may be involved in:

  • Work in conjunction with Sales Managers to develop and implement commercial strategies in order to achieve business objectives
  • Develop territory management plans that identify and prioritise activities to achieve business goals
  • Work on new product launches by analysing competitors and market size in determining the best possible strategy to grow our range

What we look for

As well as a 2:1 degree (or equivalent) in any relevant discipline, you will need to be able to demonstrate strong team, communication and relationship building skills. You will also need to be highly adaptable and given the rotational nature of the programme, you must also be willing to move regularly around the UK, Ireland and potentially to Europe.

We’re looking for people with the potential to become future leaders of our business, so it’s important that you have high levels of energy and are confident, tenacious and determined.
