And that is where you come in...

We’re looking for exceptional graduates, real game changers, to join our Commercial Graduate Scheme.

  • Have the legal right to work in the EU
  • Have valid EU Driving License
  • Be able to start full time employment in September 2017

“Many companies say they offer graduates early responsibility. RB genuinely do. I proposed ideas for new product development, recommended artwork, and gave my view on TV copy and campaigns. All my contributions were taken onboard despite being a first year graduate. Now in my Sales role, I'm optimising trade investments and promotions and seized an opportunity to increase distribution on one of our Personal Care product ranges.”  Gurinder changed the game….How will you?
