DCC Future Leaders Graduate Programme

We're not looking for typical graduates at DCC. We're looking for the global business leaders of the future. We're looking for people who share our ambition and commercial drive. We're looking for those few exceptional candidates who can join a successful business and take it from strength to strength.

Throughout the programme you will have opportunities to work across our five industry divisions, giving you a huge range of real-life experiences. You do not have to commit to a rigid career path in advance; you must, however, be prepared to work outside your comfort zone because our expectations are high.

The DCC Future Leaders Graduate Programme is a different kind of programme for a different kind of graduate. Here, you will be able to reach the highest levels of the commercial world without surrendering your individuality to one of the big brands.

Are you one of the special few who are brave enough and talented enough to really do things differently? We are now closed for our 2014 Graduate intake. Please click here to register your Interest for our 2015 intake.

Graduates will firstly master the role of business analyst both from an operational and project perspective. This will involve understanding how the multiple systems are deployed across our businesses (e.g. Oracle, SAP, Web, CRM), specifically how the interaction of procurement, sales and logistics combine to offer a competitive advantage.

Locations

As a global organisation, operating in 13 countries, we offer graduates the opportunity to work in a number of businesses throughout the UK, Ireland and Continental Europe. This could mean, for example, that you spend your first placement working within a company in a UK SerCom business and then spend eight months working in an Irish Healthcare business followed by another placement working in an Energy business in the Netherlands. Whatever path you end up on, you'll need the flexibility and adaptability to succeed in a dynamic environment.

What to Expect

If you’re looking for something beyond a conventional graduate programme we might be offering just what you need. Some graduate programmes claim that they will give you a real learning and opportunities to find your niche, we really mean it. Our programme runs on a rotational basis across a number of our companies, moving across three of these companies over two years. We will provide you with support to be as successful as you can, but we'll expect you to have real responsibility from day one. In exchange for taking on this challenge, you'll learn more about business in two years than you would on any other graduate programme.

Business Management

I have just started my new role in DCC SerCom after completing my third and final placement on the Business Management stream. During my time on the programme I have worked in three different divisions: SerCom, Healthcare and Energy. I have had exposure to a wide array of projects including handling the Microsoft distribution channel for the UK, completing a company brand audit and managing a retail website. From these placements I have learned a huge amount and gained valuable experience which I look forward to using throughout my continuing career with DCC as a Category Manager.

Information Technology

My time on the DCC Future Leaders Graduate Programme has given me extensive experience in both Business Analysis and Project Management roles. I have also been able to gain a solid grounding in the holistic nature of Enterprise Resource Planning software (such as SAP, Codas and Oracle), particularly in the last of my three placements where I managed the data migration of a company merger. During my two years on the programme I was fortunate enough to experience five major ‘Go-Lives’. I am now in a Project Management role within DCC SerCom.

Marketing

I am currently based in Flogas Britain (Energy Division) on my second placement during which I have overseen development of the company's online marketing strategy and headed up event management for a Global Industry Conference. This placement has provided a wholly different experience to my first rotation at Fannin (Healthcare Division) where I worked in a role that was focussed on New Product Development. As a result of this variation I have had the opportunity to gain a broad view of the Marketing function, face a range of challenging situations and both develop existing abilities and diversify to gain new skills.

Sales and Marketing

I am on my second placement on the Sales and Marketing stream. My first placement was in the Energy Division at Flogas Britain in Leicester where I was tasked with expanding the company's presence in digital marketing. I am currently working in DCC’s Healthcare division for DCC Vital in Dublin where I am working on the launch of two specific product ranges and their sales and marketing strategies. Both projects have allowed me to really take ownership so there is a real sense of satisfaction when results are seen. I have been continually challenged, worked with some great people and gained a huge amount of experience.

Logistics

My three placements saw me progress from the financial justification and implementation of new technology in Flogas Britain to the design and launch of a custom logistics model for a key retail customer in Micro-P and, finally, onto an extensive optimisation programme in Fannin Healthcare. This gave me a great deal of experience in the inner workings of companies across the DCC group as well as a solid foundation in project management, support and implementation. Throughout the two years, I was given the opportunity to work on projects that added real value to the businesses while being exposed to key decision makers and senior management. Following my two years on the programme, I have taken the role of Operations Manager in DCC Vital. This will involve operational analysis, comparison and development across the companies within the DCC Vital Group.
