We seek to develop future leaders with cross-functional experience that can drive outstanding results, embrace and lead change, optimize key performance indicators, recognize risks, and provide significant value and leadership to the organization going forward. It's why we promote growth for talented professionals through programs like the Purchasing & Supplier Quality Leadership Development Program.
WHAT YOU'LL DO
The Purchasing & Supplier Quality Leadership Development Program is a two-year rotational program designed to provide future leaders with formidable experience and development opportunities in several functional areas. Rotations involve the management of specific projects in areas such as Purchasing, Supplier Quality, Engineering and Manufacturing, while interfacing closely with the Product Development vehicle teams.
During your first two years in the Purchasing & Supplier Quality Leadership Development Program (P&SQ-LDP), you will take part in four six-month rotational assignments in your choice of a Purchasing or Supplier Quality track:
