Working with Hilton Foods Danmark

What It’s Like to Work for Us

We are a successful FMCG Company operating within a fast-paced and constantly changing environment.  Our teams of high-calibre specialists work within close-knit teams to achieve top quality results in all areas of the business.

We have an innovative approach to all we do and are always looking for better ways of doing things. This drive for continual improvement is what makes us so successful and to achieve this level of success our people need to be tenacious, results driven and pro-active.

Targeted Employee Development

Training and development of all our staff, at all levels within the Company, is at the very heart of our people philosophy.

We have development programs for multiple employee levels. Before entering courses and development programs, the employees are offered a personality test. This test is focused on behaviour and communications.

Finally each employee prepares an action plan for a professional and personal area, which is always followed in cooperation with immediate Manager.

On-the-Job Training

We have a team of dedicated trainers based in our Production, who ensure that new staff are introduced to the business and their tasks. The trainers provide support and ensure that new staff is made to feel they are part of the team. 

We have structured Skills Matrices for all non-unique jobs within our business which set out the skills and competencies required for each level from basic operative to Line Manager.

Graduate Trainee Programme

We run a Graduate Trainee programme where we take in several graduates each year with a meat/agriculture background. We support them through a modular study programme with Bristol University and when completed they are awarded an MSc in Meat Science. At the same time they work through an internal training programme which sees them working in each department within our business, from Intake through to Product Development, Purchasing, Planning, Production, Technical, Commercial etc.

At the completion of the two year programme they will be offered a junior management position.

Business Support Trainees

Running in parallel with our Graduate Trainee Programme our Business Support Trainee Programme offers structured training to people with potential who have opted not to go University. They are given the opportunity to be trained in a number of different support departments within the company over a two year period so that they are able to provide administrative support wherever it is needed, either to cover for absence, or to assist with a busy workload, or special project and for some this will be the stepping stone to a future management role within Hilton.
