The New Zealand Food and Grocery Council will launch an internship programme to “create a pipeline of top talent for the FMCG industry”.

The initiative will be unveiled in Auckland on July 27, and has been developed in response to feedback from FGC’s members.

The launch event will outline the opportunity, attraction, selection and recruitment process along with the training programme, which offers the opportunity for companies to “connect with talented university students before they graduate”.

Selection will be co-ordinated by industry experts, while interns will be expected to take part in a tailored training programme.

Companies will get the chance to evaluate potential future graduate candidates during the internship. They will also gain the ability to build their brands on campus now, and engage brand ambassadors for the future, FGC said in a statement.

The launch event will be presented by Talent Solutions principal consultant Seren Wilson and Bizadvisor director Kelly Smith.
