The HEINEKEN Graduate Programme at DB Breweries is a global accelerated leadership programme designed for recent graduates who want to brew their career with one of the world's largest beer companies!
Based at our Waitemata Brewery in Auckland, the "HGP" is designed to grow future leaders for DB and HEINEKEN by providing you with the tools, support and experiences you'll need to succeed.
Throughout the programme, you'll get to apply your learning to real-world problems and make a tangible difference to our products and ways of working.
Applications for the HGP open around June-July each year for the following year's intake.
Our ideal candidates for the HGP are people who've graduated with a degree within the past two years.

Our programme is based at our Waitemata Brewery and Support Office in Otahuhu, but you'll need the flexibility to relocate to one of our breweries in New Zealand or the Asia Pacific region for one of your assignments for 4-6 months. Relocation costs will be covered by DB.
