Awarded Top Employer status we are more than just the leading global paints and coatings company and a major producer of specialty chemicals. We are a business recognised the world over for being first with ideas and driving improvement. For example we’re working on making flying more energy efficient by using the properties of shark skin as inspiration for a new coating we hope will improve airflow over the top of an aircraft’s wings.

At AkzoNobel, we believe we can only grow our business as fast as we grow our people. That’s why we’re committed to investing in your time with us. Join us and we’ll work with you to develop your talents so that your ideas can go far.

These Industrial Placement opportunities within our Paints business are geared towards providing you with challenging experiences. You could be involved in lowering our carbon footprint, reducing the range of raw materials we use or identifying opportunities to leverage economies of scale. Whatever projects you are involved in you will be mentored by experienced Supply Chain professionals who will encourage you to put academic theory in practice. We expect to build your competences and business skills as well as develop your practical abilities while you are with us. With an emphasis on development it’s no wonder we’ve consistently been voted by graduates as a Guardian Top 300 Graduate Employer and our own graduate trainees have rated us a Job Crowd Top Companies For Graduates To Work For.

To be considered you must be a high achiever expecting to attain a minimum 2:1 degree or equivalent* in either Engineering (Chemical, Mechanical, Manufacturing Engineering or Process & Electrical). You must also have achieved a minimum 300 UCAS points or equivalent*** as well as speak fluent English and have strong interpersonal skills.

It goes without saying that you’ll be a highly motivated undergraduate who is interested in a Supply Chain career and keen to contribute to the progress of engaging projects within our operation. What makes you different is you are the sort of graduate who not only has ideas but also has the energy and determination to make them happen; a graduate who wants to work in an international environment and find solutions to the big challenges facing the world.

So if you think you’ve got what it takes and want to develop your talents, we can’t wait to see you here at AkzoNobel. To apply please visit our website via the link. The first stage of the process will involve a telephone interview, held in January followed by a final stage assessment centre held in Slough on 12th February.
