The Programme

The General Management Acceleration Programme is the Company’s “flagship” programme to develop future global enterprise-wide directors for our company. It is sponsored by the Office of the CEO. The term General Management is a reference to future Senior directors across the organization and is not targeted to development of future Managing Directors.

In order to develop a unique general management skill set, the programme will operate across geographies and functional areas including Finance, Global Human Health, Animal Health, Human Resources, Manufacturing, Research, and Strategy. In support of our global business, the successful candidate may be located in a variety of geographies dependent upon a number of factors including, but not limited to: participant interest and career aspirations, professional and developmental opportunities and business needs.

Dependent upon current skill set, developmental needs, as well as the business needs, the successful candidate will commence in a 12 month assignment in one of several core general management areas: Marketing, Product Development, Strategy, Supply Chain, Finance, Policy, Human Resources or Sales/Customer Centricity. The first assignment will be based at a Company site in the candidate's home country. During the first rotation, participants are expected to gain knowledge of their assigned functional area, work with their senior mentor, partake in specially designed management development training, participate in peer coaching and deliver on special projects to address unique business needs in their region, as identified by the Senior Management.

Following the successful completion of the first rotational assignment, the successful candidate will typically be placed in a subsequent core general management area, for a second 12 month assignment outside of their home country. This role will further accelerate the participant’s general management skills through exposure to additional functional areas, cultures, continued management development training and partnership with peers and senior mentors, as well as delivering on projects in their new regions. Upon completion of the programme the participants will identify roles in key market or worldwide headquarters, influenced by business need with consideration of career interests.
