EXPIRY NOTICE: This job has now expired and will not be accepting any more applications.

The Company:
Founded and maintained as a family-owned company, Helm is today one of the largest chemical companies worldwide, with own offices and partnerships in more than 30 countries around the world. 

In its international business, Helm acts as a linchpin between the consuming industry and producers of chemical raw materials and pharmaceuticals. Helm Great Britain strives to be the link between producers and end consumers, offering on-time supply solutions of core products from local warehouses in the UK, Ireland and mainland Europe.

We are proud of our team because it delivers a compelling performance through an exemplary sense of commitment. We are now looking for a Commercial Graduate to join our team in a successful and dynamic enterprise that holds interesting assignments and good prospects for development in store.

Main Purpose of the Role: 
This is a fantastic opportunity for a graduate to experience a diverse and dynamic Graduate Scheme with exciting opportunities to travel internationally.

As a Commercial Graduate at Helm, your first three months will be spent at the UK offices in London, where you will be exposed to the products and services we offer and the day-to-day functioning of the business. 

The next three to six months will take you to Hamburg, Germany, where Karl O. Helm established the original import-export company back in 1900. Your time in Germany will fully immerse you in the Helm Graduate Programme. From logistics and commercial to finance and warehousing, you will gain experience in the various departments that make Helm the successful business it is today. You will then have the chance to move to another site in another country where we operate, experiencing similar rotations to get a very clear grasp of the business operations.

Returning to the UK after one year, you will continue your graduate scheme in a specific role as a Commercial Executive. Drawing on your experiences and knowledge gained from your travel year, you will develop your commercial experience and start to manage some of our products. After two years you will take on full management of products with the exciting aims of increasing global sales mobility and managing product portfolios.

On a typical day, you will get involved in:

• Order execution
• Working with ERP systems
• Logistics
• Shadowing employees in different departments
• Working alongside the Product Manager to understand how the products and commercials work

The Individual:
We are looking for an ambitious individual to join our team – someone who is hands-on and willing to fully immerse themselves in the Graduate Programme. As you will be dealing with people on a daily basis, we are looking for a personable, social graduate who is keen to build up a strong network of contacts. You will also be:

• Resilient
• Commercially aware
• Credible
• Methodical in approach
• Analytical

Academically, we are looking for graduates who have a 2:1 or higher at degree level. You will have a strong academic record to support this. We welcome applications from all degree disciplines; however a focus on science, engineering or geography would be advantageous to this role.

You will require a full driving license for this role.

Salary & Benefits:
We know how hard graduates work and what a substantial contribution they make to business and because of this, we offer the people who join us a very attractive package.

• A starting salary of £28,000
• 22 days annual leave (plus Bank Holidays)
• Profit related bonus after two years with the business
• Private pension
• Dedicated graduate training and development
• Expansive opportunities for progression

Training Opportunities & Progression:
A full training programme is in place when you join Helm to ensure you get not only the appropriate commercial and product training but also an in-depth understanding of how other areas of the business contribute to Helm’s success, both in the UK and internationally.

As we are a global business, opportunities for progression are wide-reaching. Operating in 32 countries worldwide, your next career move following the graduate programme could take you anywhere! Typically, our graduates move on to take full responsibility for product portfolios as well as profit and loss, growing accounts and building a strong network of clients.
