There are a few different training options throughout the graduate program. The most useful training I've received would actually be the product-based learning about products on offer within DuluxGroup. e.g. painting skills workshops & learning about garden products
The graduate development program at DuluxGroup has taught me leadership, negotiating, networking, presentation and project management skills.
The effort to provide training and upskilling opportunities can't be faulted. Sometimes these programmes can be hit or miss.
Graduate, Wellington, NZ
We do have various training programs. I have attended a mini-course on consumer-led innovation. This helped me build a more consumer-focused way of thinking.
The graduate program its one the best learning opportunities that I have experienced. I learned project management, communication and productivity skills, as well as dealing with difficult situations and people (among other skills). More importantly I had an opportunity to meet people from other SBUs and learn more about DuluxGroup.
Working in different roles, I have been lucky to pick up a variety of skills. Working as a Trade rep, I was able to build relationships with our customers, and learn about our products and sales techniques. My current role is heavily admin/project work which has also added to my skillset.
