We are the world's leading manufacturer of Construction and Mining Equipment, diesel and natural gas engines, industrial gas turbines and diesel-electric locomotives. By joining our graduate scheme, you will be able to explore various roles and disciplines around the business to help develop your career. Our core values (Integrity, Excellence, Teamwork, Commitment and Sustainability) are key to our success.
Energy and Transportation (E&T) Procurement provides Caterpillar with a sustainable competitive advantage by helping us to select, manage, develop and collaborate with a worldwide supply base. With over $5 Billion of annual material purchases across 40+ global facilities, placing this spend with the very best external suppliers is vital to the performance of the business. Delivering the lowest total cost for the materials, parts and services that our business needs is a vital element of Caterpillar’s strategy.
During this two-year rotational training programme, you will be given the opportunity to experience different aspects of procurement, designed to provide you with an excellent foundation in the function.
In each rotation, you will face a wide variety of challenges and have responsibility for either New Product Introduction (NPI) programs or managing supplier accounts, you will work closely with the extended global purchasing teams, engage and visit global suppliers and directly contribute to Caterpillar’s success.
After successful completion of the rotational programme, you will be promoted into a Category or Product buyer position where you will be directly managing your own portfolio of spend and suppliers. We will provide you with the training and support you need to be successful at Caterpillar.
We hold a Meet and Greet day for all new UK graduate starters. We also have a vibrant Young Professionals chapter at Peterborough which organises various social activities.
