The chance to work with a diverse range of well-known NZ brands that Kiwi’s use every day excited me and was one of the many reasons I was attracted to Goodman Fielder.
The opportunity to gain exposure to different functions across the business. One year into the program I have completed two different rotations within Supply Chain and have now started my third rotation in Sales, helping me to widen my business knowledge and skills.
The continuous support I have been given. Leaving University and stepping into the program has been a great way to transition into the working world due to the different people including my mentor, program lead and sponsor I able to approach for advice or just a friendly face to talk to.
If you enjoy working in a changing environment, where the work is diverse and no two days are the same, then Goodman Fielder is a great choice for you.

I was drawn to the Program Roadmap and the emphasis it had on purpose driven projects. It was clear that time and effort had gone into ensuring we could both learn and add value through our transition from graduates to fully capable staff.
The opportunity to work cross-functionally. As graduates we are breaking the silo walls by jumping from one project to the next, taking our network with us.
I have yet to meet a single person at Goodman Fielder who I don’t like, can’t work with, or isn’t willing to help. It seems that everyone is genuine and approachable and that, in my opinion, makes the GF workforce a true Unicorn.
