What makes the Danone NZ Graduate Programme so unique?

Here at Danone, we believe your future holds no limits and we'll provide a world of opportunities for you to embrace. On our Graduate Programme, you'll be at the cutting edge of our business, playing a key role from the start. In your first year, you’ll lead a cross-functional project that has a real impact on our business and allows you to demonstrate your potential, engaging with a range of stakeholders and presenting directly to the Leadership Team.

We have a strong development programme that will build your personal and professional skills alongside your technical skills so that you’re ready to take on the next opportunity with us when it arises. Here you can carve your own career path; once you’re delivering in your role there are opportunities to get involved in a range of projects that will play to your strengths, and the potential to put your hand up for future roles in different departments or even overseas.

On top of all that, you’ll be working for a values-driven organization that makes a difference in our society through our commitment to ‘bring health through food to as many people as possible’.

We have opportunities to suit almost all backgrounds as long as you’re prepared to work hard and have the passion, drive, and determination to make a success of whatever you take on!

Here's what our Graduates said!


Our Health Mission: Bringing health through food to as many people as possible. 


"To me, our mission means bringing a good healthy lifestyle including mental well-being, to consumers, employees, and communities. Danone has a Careline for mothers to call which is a great advisory service. The healthcare consultants don’t limit their services to our products which is a great representation of our mission, bringing health through food to as many people as possible without any barriers" - Merlyn

Our empowering and open leadership style.

"Danone develops responsibility and accountability from the get-go. You are the key contact and the person responsible for your project and will be part of the decision making process with senior management on them. This business places a lot of responsibility for you in a very short period and there are always opportunities for development even at the bottom of the ladder. If you take the opportunities and perform well you can go far, very quickly." – Ben

Our commitment to business success and social progress: the dual project.

"I think this is something that is quite unique to Danone and is really part of the DNA of the company. The fact that Danone believes that our corporate responsibility does not end at the factory gate and that we have a responsibility in having a positive impact on our communities and society is something that makes me proud to work for the company." - Ethan

"To me, the dual project means that responsibility does not stop at the factory or office doors. It’s about contributing to the people and the planet we live in. Examples would be the project the Nature team is working on to reduce the CO2emissions that come from our plant and spreading the awareness of the need to recycle and sort material waste into appropriate groups."– Merlyn

Our culture fostering collective impact and teamwork.

"I collaborate with others on a daily basis for my own job but also with so many projects going on in Danone pretty much everyone has the opportunity to join one and work with other departments and people and be a part of achieving something big" - Sarah

"For work culture, there are always new projects with opportunities to get involved in. The workplace is a fun place to be, a work family that is very supportive. There are always opportunities to hang out together outside of work too." – Taylor

Our global opportunities

We’re proud of the fact that as well as promoting people within New Zealand and offering cross-functional experiences we provide global opportunities for local talent to other Danone sites worldwide.
