What do we look for?
We want tomorrow’s leaders, the next generation of high-fliers. If you’ve got talent, ambition and determination, AkzoNobel can offer you a career that both challenges and rewards.
You’ll need to speak English fluently – we may be a global company, but it’s our universal business language. You’ll also need to be eligible to work non-restrictively throughout the EU for European jobs. Some work experience would be great, too.
We’ll consider you for most roles no matter what your degree subject – as long as it’s at least a 2:1 in the UK or equivalent in Europe, the USA and Asia. But some jobs do have specific academic needs, so it’s vital to check that you meet the criteria. View our current list of graduate, placement and internship vacancies.
At AkzoNobel, we expect you to work hard – just as you expect us to help you fulfill your potential.
So you’ll need to show drive and initiative, have an open mind and a mature attitude. We want confident people who can think strategically, communicate well and work as part of a team, even under pressure.
We also want to know why you’ve chosen us and why you’re the best person for the job. The best place to start is by looking at our current graduate opportunities.
