Come and meet Christine Tacon, the Chair of MDS, a training provider of graduates to the food and produce industry. She will tell you how you can apply for a 2-year paid graduate scheme in the food and fresh produce industry.  By working in different companies and in different roles during your placement, rather than just one, you will gain a wider experience of the industry and a better understanding of where you fit within it.

What’s in it for you? 

  • Valuable experience within a fast-paced and exciting industry which is actively seeking fresh talent 
  • Four different roles with real responsibility within member companies across the UK, with the possibility of overseas roles 
  • 27 formal training days from Cranfield School of Management and leading industry professionals 
  • Access to an extensive network of companies and industry contacts 
  • Competitive starting salary, increasing in year 2 
  • Personal mentoring from MDS staff and secondment managers at all placements to support you throughout the programme 
  • Excellent and diverse career prospects. Farm Manager, Agronomist or Procurement Manager: the opportunities are endless! 

 

By working in four different companies and in four different roles, rather than just one, you will gain a wider experience of the industry and a better understanding of where you fit within it.

Ever wondered how your chips made it to your plate? Or how blueberries are transported half way across the world to end up on supermarket shelves? The Fresh Produce Industry is the driving force behind these supply chains.

The MDS graduate scheme is the gateway to this exciting industry.
