START DATE: June 2018

Would you like the opportunity to spend six months in Thailand gaining hands-on experience across a range of business functions?


CP Foods UK is a member of the CPF Group of Companies, who are a leading Agro-Industrial and Food Conglomerate. With Business Units across Manufacturing, Foodservice, and Retail, we are striving to be known as the 'Kitchen of Choice’ in the UK. Our family encompasses brands such as 'Taste Inc’, 'Carisma’, 'Chillers’ and 'Authentic Asia’ ready meals.

With our parent company, CPF, based in Thailand, we are looking for an enthusiastic and ambitious graduate to join our UK team with the exciting opportunity to spend six months abroad in Thailand as part of Future Leaders Programme.


The Future Leaders Programme will provide you with exposure to the CPF Group of Companies by rotating around different businesses across a six-month period. These placements will be in Bangkok and Khao Yai, and all of your accommodation will be provided.

This six-month placement in Thailand is specifically designed to help you develop key leadership skills, gain practical experience, and gain insight into the different functions and roles within CP Foods.

On your return to the UK, you will re-join CP Foods UK to continue building upon the training and knowledge that you have acquired. To best prepare you for a future leadership role, we will provide you with extensive hands-on experience. During the remainder of the graduate programme, you will gain exposure to the business by rotating around a number of departments including commercial, technical, finance and operations. We will provide you with a strong support structure in each department to help you develop in your career, reach your full potential and position you to drive our business forward.


We are looking for a candidate who is qualified at degree-level in any discipline, but who is ambitious to take a leadership role in a dynamic organisation in the future.

The successful candidate will:

  • Have effective communication skills
  • Be able to work with people at all levels
  • Have excellent numerical and verbal reasoning
  • Be a self-motivated individual who will use your own initiative and drive to make a difference
  • Show good attention to detail and commitment to achieving a quality outcome
  • Demonstrate a desire to take responsibility for your own career progress and development
  • Be able to challenge and question
  • Be flexible and adaptable
  • Be confident in your abilities, but also keen to learn and develop

The job start date is June 2018 and you will be going to Thailand in July 2018 as part of your training.
