Mondelez is one of the world’s leading snacking companies, home to some of the nation’s favourite brands including Cadbury Dairy Milk, Oreo and Green and Black’s

Mondelez International, home to beloved brands including Cadbury and Maynards Bassetts, is offering 11 Apprenticeships across both Reading and Bournville sites.

  • Enterprise Programme Apprenticeship, Northern Europe x 2
  • Supply Chain Apprenticeship, Bournville x 2

Our delicious snacks don’t just appear on shelves, there are thousands of us working hard to create, design and deliver tasty products for the UK. It takes teams of colleagues working together to bring each new exciting snack to consumers. An apprenticeship at Mondelez opens doors for anyone considering a career change, or for those who are keen to learn new skills on the job.

Our Trainee Scientist Apprentices are given top secret project work from day one, their mission, to experiment with and develop the ingredients of tomorrow’s snacks. Working in Reading Science Centre, our Trainee Scientist Apprentices are part of a team whose research is used as the foundations for development in Bournville RDQ centre.

The partnership between Reading and Bournville is vital to creating new products. Using this ingredient research, Bournville based Chocolate R&D Apprentice’s improve existing products and develop prototypes that surprise and delight consumers. This innovation eco-system enables us to lead snacking for 150 markets.

Ryan Hadley, previously a Bournville R&D Scientist Apprentice, now a R&D Technician, commented: “I started my career as an Apprentice at Mondelēz in 2016, since then I have completed my level three apprenticeship and I have just started a sponsored four-year Level six degree apprenticeship, that will see me gain a BSc degree in Food Science and Technology.

Working for Mondelez has changed my perspective of the food industry, I am proud and passionate to work on many iconic brands such as Cadbury, Toblerone and Milka. I believe apprenticeships are the way forward. What’s not to love?”
