Working in a competitive and dynamic industry that demands a strategic and innovative approach. The market is fairly saturated so finding new ways to grow your products, sales and business demands good analysis, fresh insights and powerful marketing. There is significant variety in the beauty industry across different divisions and categories and so offers an interesting chance to both take a broad interest in the industry, find areas of personal interest and to specialise later in your career. The graduate scheme is divided into three rotations of four months, one of which is spent in an alternative stream. So as a marketing graduate I have to do one rotation in the commercial stream. This allows me to better understand this side of the business and to better empathise with my colleagues work pressures. L’Oreal trusts its graduates with real responsibility from the start. This means graduates are fully appreciated as a resource and are valued members of their teams. It also allows them to take true ownership of their week and to get exposure within the business at an early stage of their career. You have to be a quick learner and training occurs progressively once already in the role. Training could be more structured to occur ahead of the role which would make graduates more effective once arriving in the business. The business is very full on and there is often a lot of pressure on deadlines. Working to short time frames is a part of the L’Oreal culture and one you have to accept from day 1.
