Global Development Program – Nutreco Africa

Do you want to be trained by one of the leading Feed companies in the world to become a Future Leader in Africa? Are you looking for opportunities to travel and live abroad in Africa? Or are you already living there? If you are a recent Graduate in the field of Animal Nutrition or Animal Sciences and you want to advise clients, become a Project Manager or Product Manager, this is the traineeship for you!

As of today, Nutreco has launched a new two-year global development program for nutritional commercial talents. We’re looking for enthusiastic and driven individuals to join our team and start off this in-depth program. Applicants must be educated in technical nutrition and have a strong commercial affinity to help further develop our business in Africa and grow our commercial portfolio.

During the first two months of program you’ll be immersed in our African business. This will help you get acquainted with local product management and sales, and get a feel for the market.


The following six to nine months will see you working in R&D while based in one of our global teams in either the Netherlands or Norway. Your location will depend on your specialisation and preferences. There you’ll learn about our innovation strategy and key product development areas.

Once you’ve finished your training at R&D, you’ll move on to join our Global Marketing team for another six to nine months. There you’ll be involved with global projects, including new global product launches and other aspects of our marketing business. This phase of the program will focus on developing your competencies and skills around value selling, account management, intercultural awareness, and more. Throughout the program, you’ll have the opportunity to meet and collaborate with many of our talented employees here at Nutreco while building a strong global network in this exciting industry.

After completing this part of the program, you’ll begin working in our African based business where you’ll have the opportunity to share your newly acquired know-how with colleagues and travel between different locations in Africa. You’ll also benefit from ongoing mentoring and coaching by senior management for a minimum period of two years.
