Overview

The Alltech Corporate Career Development Program will equip participants with the skills necessary to make a real contribution to a world-leading organization where they will have the chance to take on significant responsibility at an early stage in their careers. It offers a truly international and well rounded experience in varying divisions, functions and countries at a dynamic and fast moving pace.

Successful candidates will work on R&D, Sales, Marketing, Finance, I.T., Operational, Engineering and Regulatory projects in several areas of Alltech’s business including animal science, aquaculture, agronomy and in our consumer division. Individual assignments will be planned by creating a development path which takes overall business priorities and the profile of the candidate into consideration. At Alltech, we are not interested in creating a cloned structure for our people; we prefer to create movement in which participants can develop their own solutions and carve their paths.

On completion of the program, participants will be ready to play a key role in their field of expertise and passion, share their acquired knowledge and take on even greater responsibilities.
