Management Trainee Experience: Rebecca Taylor

Hi everyone,

I’m Bec, a 2017 Management Trainee based at Freshwater Place, Melbourne. Originally from England, I grew up on the Mornington Peninsula with my family and two Golden Retrievers, before moving closer to Monash University, where I completed my Bachelor of Business and Health Science. With an insatiable appetite for travel, culture and food, working for a global FMCG company was always a dream of mine. I couldn’t have been more excited to start my journey as a Management Trainee at Kraft Heinz.

Prior to commencing the Management Trainee Program, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to work with Raquel Camara and the HR team, in Performance and Compensation. Reminiscing on the last six months, I am amazed by the amount of opportunities I have been provided with as a Management Trainee.

Our first rotation, saw us conquering the field as a Sales Representative. It was a great experience to be able to take ownership over my own set of stores, meet face-to-face with our customers and build on my negotiation skills. Having seen our products being made in Echuca earlier on in the program, it was interesting to see our products at the other end of the cycle, customer facing.

I recently completed my second rotation in Exports, where I was engaged in many fascinating research projects, that looked at exporting our Heinz Baby Food AU to China and Golden Circle Juice to South East Asia. Now, nearly a month into my third rotation, within the Beverages Marketing Team, I have been tasked with working on the Golden Circle campaign for Q4, something I am extremely excited about. I cant wait to see where my journey as a Management Trainee takes me!
