What our current graduates enjoy about the program
“I like that my role is really diverse. There are no two days that are the same. Some days I am in store talking to our consumers and customers about our products, other days are spent talking with business owners about how Dulux can help them improve their procurement or service models to increase profitability or efficiencies in their own business, I could go on!”
“I really enjoy how empowered I am in this role. We are encouraged to ‘run the business as our own’ which means we really own our territory/account. Of course this means you will make mistakes, however we are trained and encouraged to figure out how we would go differently about things next time and always encouraged to continue learning and developing.”
“The diversity in our customers means no two days are the same and for this reason we are encouraged to be proactive, flexible and strategic. I’ve really enjoyed the focus on personal development the business has provided, which in turn continues to push me to be challenged and evolve the way in which I operate.”
