Graduate Opportunities...

At Tate & Lyle Sugars, we believe our graduate scheme is essential for creating a pipeline of talented people to take our business forward in the future.

What we Look for

Tate & Lyle Sugars specifically look for graduates in Operations – in specialist areas such as Packing and Engineering.

We are also keen to hear from you if you are interested in other disciplines, such as Supply Chain, Finance and Commodity Trading.

Personal Development

Personal and professional development is key in enabling you to succeed and flourish in our business, and we offer a structured programme of activities, training, projects and experiences to achieve this.

As an Engineering graduate at our Thames Refinery, the largest cane refining operation in Europe, you will quickly assume a hands-on role contributing to the various departments within the function, gaining a broad experience of our impressive and vast operation.

Continuous Learning

During this time, you will also get involved in a number of specific projects focused on continuous improvement.

You will spend part of your training programme working shifts and managing teams in order to understand more about the sugar refining process and the refinery itself, particularly how it is operated and maintained out of ‘normal hours’.

What's Next?

Upon completion of this graduate programme you will take up the position of Process Engineer in a specific process area or become part of a dedicated project team.
