Neamh Gilligan, Commercial Graduate Scheme
Since joining us 10 months ago, Neamh has been on the marketing rotation of the commercial graduate scheme in the UK. Currently an Assistant Brand Manager, she’s about to move into the sales rotation.
“I love getting to make a difference to customers’ lives. For example, I’ve recently been working on a Gaviscon campaign, educating people about the symptoms of heartburn and indigestion. Being able to empower people and give them a solution is a really nice feeling.”
What to expect
At Reckitt, we use a 50-40-10 learning model. This means half your learning will be on-the-job training through projects, secondments or volunteering. 40% will be social – learning from colleagues through feedback, coaching, mentoring and shadowing and interacting. And 10% will be formal education in our Learning Academies.
Get real responsibility from day one, working with big brands with purpose.
Gain unique, highly varied learning opportunities on rotational programmes.
Enjoy a diverse, inclusive culture where your ideas are welcomed and you’re free to be yourself.
Do meaningful work with brands that are making a positive difference to people’s lives.
To provide a more holistic learning experience, we make rotations part of our graduate programmes. Often, this involves you moving between different locations – for example, between a manufacturing setting, regional offices, and corporate headquarters. This breadth of experience is great for your future career, and vital to becoming a leader at Reckitt.
