Leadership Trainee Program

The Bimbo Canada Leadership Trainee Program is our early leadership development program for talented, driven and ambitious University
graduates. This exceptional and unique program has been part of our history for more than 20 years and has seen program graduates build
phenomenal careers as well as go on to play key roles in the company’s growth and success.

During the three years in the program, participants rotate through three carefully selected and meaningful roles that will develop both their
leadership and functional expertise preparing them for their future as a leader. The program consists of roles in Sales, Marketing, Finance,
Engineering, Food Safety and Quality, Operations, Procurement or Logistics. Participants receive support through formal coaching, regular
feedback, development plans and reviews. There are also opportunities for mentoring, networking and workshops. We also encourage
self-study and project work.

Upon graduation, trainees are equipped to take on roles with greater responsibility and scope that will drive impact on business results
regionally, nationally and globally based on their skillset and organizational needs.
