We offer empowered and challenging roles in supply chain, trading, manufacturing, consumer sales and distribution, plantations and farming, digital and sustainability to name but a few, and we're always looking for talent with ambitions for a global, winning career.
Supply chain management is at the heart of what we do at Olam. We have built an unparalleled network of farmers and cooperatives, working with them on the ground to improve yields. Our teams are skilled in logistics, risk management and securing supplies for customers and we are working closely with partners to re-imagine our supply chains through digital disruption, enhancing product traceability and sustainability.
The world of international commodity trade is fast-paced and exciting. Given our extensive presence across the globe – our traders can analyse the proprietary information on supply and demand that gives us the edge to make superior trading calls. Our trading expertise is supported with rigorous research and analysis honed by quantitative tools and techniques to develop a unique Olam insight.
Our network of over 200 manufacturing plants spreads across Asia-Pacific, Africa, Europe, Middle-East and the Americas. Apart from manufacturing, this team is responsible for health, safety, and sustainability, quality, food safety, ensuring that we comply with all local laws and that everything we do meets our environmental, social and ethical standards.
In some parts of Africa and other emerging markets large-scale food retail is in its early stages. The race is on for who can organise the most efficient distribution and win over the most consumers, and our sales and marketing team are responsible for helping Olam win it. Mainly focused on markets in West Africa, this dynamic business delivers various packaged foods and beverages like biscuits, candies, noodles, tomato paste and dairy beverages to wholesale and retail markets.
We grow an array of crops, such as almonds, coffee and rubber, so we have an acute understanding of the pressures facing farmers. Our scale and insight means we share learnings from one crop to another, driving efficiencies for Olam and customers. We are also firm believers in the ability of large-scale and small-scale farmers to work hand in hand, increasing volumes and stimulating opportunity around our operations through smallholder ‘outgrower’ programmes.
Our Finance team has an ambitious vision and transformation agenda so the environment is fast-paced, collaborative and rewarding. Ensuring predictable outcomes and standardised, efficient and scalable processes is of course critical, but so too is the important role each plays working with business leaders as co-strategists, driving our digital transformation, and maximising value through innovative financing structures and other special projects.
Our IT and Digital teams don’t just keep Olam efficient and connected. By bringing cutting edge technologies into our business in an agile way, they are driving our transformation and helping us to build a tech-savvy culture. Our team is working on drone image analytics, digital procurement, paperless trade, digital warehouse and traceability through our supply chain thereby making us the most desired global agri-business to work for.
