Leading our Sales, Marketing, R&D and Supply Chain in Northern Europe

Our programmes

RB (Reckitt Benckiser) UK looks for graduates to join two-year programmes in Sales & Marketing, Supply or R&D. We also take on new graduates direct to functions, outside of the formal graduate schemes. Formal programmes begin on the first of September and we accept applications from September of the previous year.

To apply for a graduate programme in the UK you’ll need the following:

  • Minimum of 300 UCAS points (or international equivalent)
  • 2:1 degree minimum (or international equivalent)
  • For roles in Sales & Marketing most degree subjects are acceptable
  • For R&D you’ll need to have studied a scientific discipline
  • For Supply Chain Management you should have an engineering or operations/business management bias
  • Any additional languages will always be an advantage

Just as important as your academic qualifications will be your attitude. RB has a unique culture and RB people are distinctively different. We look for graduates who can match our achievement-focus, drive and ambition.
