Future Leaders Programme

Our Future Leaders Programme is a 12 month development programme designed to expose ambitious minds to the world of Olam and prepare them as our next generation of leaders.  

The first 6 months involve 4 or 5 rotations through the full value chain. Participants work in many different parts of the business in various countries, building their networks and understanding the complexity and variety of our work. 

Beyond this they have the chance to drive 2 high-impact commercial projects, and after a year, participants are placed in a front-line management role. It’s a fantastic way to get some early experience of the challenge and empowerment of one of our leadership positions.


This programme will test your initiative, stimulate your ambition and creativity, and demand your energy and intellect. It will give you the global exposure, networks, and perspective you need for a high-impact career.

“This opportunity is the best that I could have hoped for to jumpstart my career. It has taken me places I would never have imaged or seen. The Future Leaders Programme fast tracks my learning curve and personal development. I would recommend this programme to anyone who is driven, adventurous and interested in pursuing a career in agri-commodity business”
