Careers in Ghana

    We offer exciting opportunities, whether you are taking your first career steps or are a seasoned professional.

    Our operations span multiple products and roles from procurement in the field, to manufacturing and technical services in our factories, to office-based support functions. Employees benefit from being part of a 2,500-strong national team and a global network.

    While we’re a large organisation, we think like a start-up. We challenge employees to “imagine the extraordinary” – whether that’s in changing the way we do things, from innovations in ingredients and packaging, to developing new technologies to measure and improve systems, to farmer training initiatives. We give our colleagues the freedom to create new answers to everyday questions.

    Interesting in Our Graduate Trainee Programme?

    Our 12-month Graduate Trainee Programme is for those with an entrepreneurial spirit, passion for excellence and an appetite for new environments.

    Throughout the year, individuals engage with a variety of experts, shadowing, collaborating, and working independently to build confidence, commercial acumen, and a strong network.

    For the first month, trainees rotate through different products, followed by three months in a specified work-stream. The subsequent six months require trainees to identify and deliver two high-impact commercial projects, recognising genuine and actionable benefits to the business. The final two months are spent gaining team management experience. 

    After successfully graduating, trainees are offered a supervisory role within the business.

    Apply for Our Graduate Trainee Programme between August and October.

    Interested in Joining Our Internship Programme?

    If you’re still studying and want to see if this is the type of environment where you’d flourish, get in touch!

    At Olam Ghana we offer university students an opportunity to gain two months of relevant industry experience before they enter their final year.

    The annual programme runs from June to August and places Interns in departments related to their area of study. Mentors and real projects bring theories learnt in the classroom to life.

    This is not a paid opportunity – however, we cover travel expenses and offer subsidised meals on site. 

    To apply, send your CV with an introductory letter from your institution to us, clearing marking the subject as “Internship Programme”.
