What is marketing in ABF?
At the heart of ABF Marketing is the passion to engage consumers in our products and brands. In a competitive and dynamic FMCG landscape, we have to be at the top of our game to capture the attention of consumers. Our brands are bought by 93% of UK homes, selling over 1.4 million packs a day, making ABF Marketing a vibrant, fast-paced and exciting place to be. Over the course of your 2-year scheme in ABF you will gain diverse experience in Marketing across at least two different businesses and roles.
