Are You Ready to Make It Happen at Mondelez International?
Join our Mission to Lead the Future of Snacking. Make It Matter.
As an organisation we are committed to developing the next generation of Makers and Bakers. Joining us at an early career stage in our fast paced and ever changing environment will enable you to do more, learn more and grow more. You will be encouraged to step outside your comfort zone– you may even surprise yourself! We will ensure you are given the support you need to be at your best and enable you to be yourself and bring passion and personality. Here you can lean in and speak up and bring your own flavour.
Big enough to reach the top. Small enough to help you get off the ground.
Want a small taste of life at Mondelēz? Then sink your teeth into one of our huge internships. Our internships are 12 months long and we’ll make you an integral part of our team and give you a real job – with real responsibilities – from day one. We hope to help you expand your horizons and encourage your personal and professional development.
We want to make sure you get the most from your time with us. That’s why once you join we’ll work out ambitious but achievable goals for you. Then through the support of a buddy and regular reviews with your manager, we’ll help you achieve them.
You will offer support to the whole Corporate Affairs team covering; Internal Communications, External Communications and our vibrant Community agenda.
Internal Communications: Providing internal communications support for Northern Europe (NE) countries – with a particular focus on our UK business – you’ll be a key contact in generating content to ensure we maintain a holistic voice across the area, and will collaborate with local teams (HR / brand / PA’s) to identify great stories which celebrate success and help support recognition of colleagues. The role will support our digital channels (intranet, yammer) and support the editing of messages, creating communication materials for local leaders and communication champions across the region to ensure a vibrant communication programme.
External Communications: You will work with the team to tell the MDLZ story in creative, inspiring ways that resonate with journalists and the general public. This will involve supporting responses to queries from national and local media as part of a small but busy communications team which covers both Mondelez International and its brands.
The role will see the opportunity to work cross-functionally to help support issues as they arise and shape the business’ response. It will require monitoring political and parliamentary activity. When we organize events for media and political stakeholders, you will play a key role in bringing this to life.
Community: You’ll play a key role in supporting our community/impact agenda for Northern Europe and in achieving volunteer KPI’s across the region. As part of this, you will collaborate with local community champions, Cadbury Foundation trustees and external partners to deliver key programmes. You’ll also get the opportunity to support the creation and communication of community impact content and stories across the region to ensure a vibrant and engaging community programme.
Team Support: As part of this role, you will also provide some administration support to the NE CGA Team. Effective administration will include organising team affairs (e.g. meetings, calls etc), general team admin (files, archive), general day-to-day admin issues, as well as taking on specific projects to support the function in its delivery of company objectives – e.g. major event management such as internal management conferences or set piece external events.
