#LeadingToBetter

How often can you find a multi-billion-dollar company that offers you flexibility to change in your career as your interests change? You just did.

 Kerry's unique culture offers support and opportunities as your interests and need to explore grow. If fast-paced, entrepreneurial, and global opportunities appeal to you, then introduce yourself! 

 

What we look for in our early career candidates:

Communication Skills – Kerry is a complex matrix organization and our grads need to be able to communicate effectively to all levels. This also applies to stepping out from behind their “screens” and communicating in person as well.

Teamwork – With our complex environment we need our grads to be able to work in diverse, cross functional teams.

Professionalism – As a corporate company, the ability to navigate a corporate environment, meet deadlines, conduct meetings & contribute is key.

Flexibility – Kerry is fast paced and ever changing / evolving. Those who can adapt and thrive when change is guaranteed.

Leadership – We grow through acquisitions which is a huge opportunity for grads to make an impact quickly. Those who are able to lead and influence without the authority that comes with a title can go far here.

    I have been working at Kerry full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Kerry is a hidden gem-the innovation and technology used in taste & nutrition offers opportunities at all levels. This is a very entrepreneurial company tons of potential for employees who are curious and willing to go after what they want in their career. The culture is one that offers collaboration, free-thinking, and inclusiveness. North America headquarters are in Beloit, WI - a town in the middle of everywhere.

    Cons

    Leaders get excited about ideas and will be eager to see them executed....like now. This is also a "pro" because all idea are welcome and can actually become something!

    Advice to Management

    Keep on the trajectory you're on
