Where you fit in to our ambitions 

If we’re to grow our business, it’s essential that we also develop our people.

We know that if we release the potential of every one of our people, we’ll be successful. What’s more, we know that a great place to work is one in which every single person understands that if they give their best, they’ll be supported to become even better. Tate & Lyle is that kind of place.

We can help you achieve your best in many ways. You’ll be encouraged to share your career aspirations with your manager, who will work with you to achieve your goals.

There are many ways you can progress and broaden your experience apart from promotion. We’ll encourage you to develop in your current role, take on more stretching challenges, move across functions, locations and markets … whatever you need to do, we’ll help you. So that when your promotion opportunity arrives, you’ll know – as will we – that you’re more than ready for it.

To make sure you’re always performing to your best ability, you’ll create and work on an individual development plan in partnership with your manager. This will include 360 feedback, as well as formal training. But we believe very strongly in the 70:20:10 approach to learning – in which the majority of your learning will be informal and hands-on (70%), with peer support and personal reflection (20%) coming above formal workshops (10%).

In essence, we are creating a learning environment in which you have access to a wide range of opportunities and tools tailored to your individual learning style and needs. That’s why we developed our new MyDevelopment portal, an online gateway to a massive resource of articles, podcasts, videos and more that you can customise to suit your individual development plan. This is complemented by the Tate & Lyle Academy, a range of formal programmes focused on the skills we need to develop the Company.
