Go further, faster

If you're looking to accelerate your career at a leading international business, you've come to the right place. The world of beer never stands still - and neither do we. That's why we created our Fast Track Apprenticeship program (FTA) - purpose-built to turn talented graduates into future leaders.

With the choice of being based in either the vibrant city of Prague or Kharkiv, you'll learn fast, work hard, have fun and in just 16 months you could be leading a team of your own.

"As the world's best beer company, we have big dreams for our business – and reaching them will depend on the quality of our future leaders. This is why I'm so excited by the potential of the young talent joining us through our Fast Track Apprenticeship. For those aspiring to leadership, there’s no better place to start."

Serge De Vos, BSC Europe Director, AB InBev

The Program

This program is all about making things happen. After all, that's one of the key qualities you'll see in every one of our leaders.

So, at the core of the FTA are two 8-month rotations, giving you hands-on experience in the operational side of our business. After a short induction to the world of AB InBev, you'll get straight into your first placement.

If you join our Logistics team, you'll either be working to ensure that our beer reaches our customers in Europe on time and in full, or you'll be managing export and import across the world. This is no small task - in Europe alone, our 20 breweries serve more than 23 thousand customers, shipping in excess of 65 million hectoliters of beer each year (that's enough to fill more than 7 Olympic sized swimming pools - every day)!

Alternatively, you may begin in Finance. As part of our Order-To-Cash (OTC) team, you'll play a crucial role in liaising with customers to manage payments, while working within our Procure-To-Pay (PTP) team will give you unique insight into how we work with our suppliers.

After the first 8 months, you'll rotate from one department to another, giving you a chance to expand your skills and really learn our business from the inside out. But it doesn't stop there.

In addition to your day-to-day role in the business, we'll give you the opportunity to shine by taking on specific projects and presenting your solutions to senior leadership. Best of all, by the end of the 16-month program, you could advance straight into your first managerial role with us - leading a team reporting directly to you.

It's an intense program that's designed to challenge you to improve and innovate every day, and it also offers amazing training from our top people, and it's designed to help you build the career you want. What's more, you'll get to do so in a youthful, energetic and global business environment you'll be unlikely to find anywhere else.

Who we're looking for

Talented. Proactive. Ambitious. Curious. Where other people see problems, you see solutions. You're organized, with an eye for detail and a continuous drive to make processes work better for everyone.

You value structure but can think beyond it. You have excellent communication skills and are good at building and maintaining strong relationships with suppliers, customers, and colleagues alike. You're also not afraid to be hands-on to get the job done, take ownership of your projects from day one, and meet ambitious targets.

You have a university degree and no more than two years of work experience after graduating. More important than the subject you studied is your international mind-set, and the language skills to go with it.

If you are joining the program in Prague, to be eligible, an upper-intermediate level of English is essential along with a basic level of either Dutch, French or German. For Kharkiv, next to an upper-intermediate level of English, you also need to be fluent in Russian. For both locations mobility across Europe is required.

Does this sound like you? If so, we'd love to hear from you.

We're now accepting applications for our Fast Track Apprenticeship program beginning on the 29th August 2016.
