Careers at Jacobs Douwe Egberts

If you’re brimming with an entrepreneurial spirit and a drive to succeed, you’ll fit right in at JDE. Working globally, but staying true to their local roots, our Associates have been positively influencing the world of coffee for over 265 years.

In that time, we’ve worked hard to build the kind of open, collaborative environment where you can approach anyone and where your opinion matters. 

Growing our people is a priority. Our associates have access to a range of learning and development programmes to support their personal growth. We actively encourage our associates to broaden their critical experiences outside of their traditional fields of study. Creating a diverse and rewarding experience.

Solidarity

We move forward as one because we are stronger when we work together. We share in our achievements. Our solidarity is what gives us the credibility and power to make a difference.

It’s all about connecting and bringing people together. It’s a mindset that reminds us of the simple pleasure and the strongest goals. It’s important from a team point of view because it encourages openness and honesty. We can’t do everything on our own, we rely on collaboration and diversity to get the best work done.

Entrepreneurship

We think, act and behave like owners. We look for creative ways to recognise and pursue opportunities to ensure our ideas succeed.  

It’s called fast moving consumer goods for a reason. We’re constantly moving and developing. We’re driving JDE forward to be the best it can be. We welcome storytellers and free-thinkers brimming with bold ideas for the future. It’s about constantly thinking towards the next step. Ambition is key for us and we’re never afraid to stop trying until we get it just right.

Accountability

We take charge of what is ours to create the outcomes to which we have committed. We rise above circumstance to get the result we want.

It’s about creating trust between everyone so you feel you can make a difference. We like to celebrate people who raise the bar. We value debate and love dialogue. This is how we get results. We’re not afraid to throw you in the deep end, making sure you have the backing and support of the whole team.
