Danielle Esptein, Supply Chain Graduate
The University Talent Programme
is a three year scheme with yearly
rotations across Supply Chain.
The three different roles will help
me gain a wide skill set and a broad
perspective of the many functions and
areas of CCE's dynamic Supply Chain.
The objective of the scheme is to
accelerate my development to support
my career progression, enabling me to
begin a career path towards becoming
a future leader of the business.
My first role on the scheme is as an
Asset Care System Supervisor, working
in the Engineering Department. My
main projects are around organising
efficient and effective maintenance of
some of our key production lines in the
The food and drink sector is typically
a fast moving business which makes
it interesting and challenging as
technology develops quickly and we
adapt to meet our customer's needs.
Working in the food and drink
manufacturing sector has meant
I have dramatically improved my
communication skills as I work with
people at different levels of the
business and with different objectives.
My influencing skills have also
improved as I don't have a direct team
working for me in the engineering
department and must rely on the
operations team to help me with my
work. Presentation and networking
skills have also been improved as the
graduate scheme gives me plenty of
opportunities to present and meet the
leaders of CCE's business.
