Where talent thrives

The Hanson Management Development Program (MDP) is a two-year rotational program for graduates from all disciplines. With on-the-job learnings across our main operations, the MDP has been designed to develop "balanced" leaders who can take on full P&L and balance sheet responsibility on completion of the program.

At Hanson we understand that business success is driven through consistently improving customer outcomes. In addition, we know that true leadership & business acumen is honed by understanding customers & how a strong business serves them well. For this reason, we are facilitating a sales focused MDP stream.

The purpose of the sales focused MDP stream is ensure that no matter whether you take on a technical, operational or commercial role within our business, you always have the customer front of mind. As a sales focused MDP, you will take on both sales and operational aspects of our business. This will include up-front, in-depth sales training and a small portfolio of clients to manage. The sales aspect of the MDP role will constitute a maximum of 50% of the time and the other 50% will be focused on cross functional work rotations, projects & training.

At Hanson, we have a genuine commitment to our people, and a strong culture of 'growing our own'. 90% of our most senior 100 leaders, started on our MDP. With guidance from a mentor, you will be given all the responsibility you can handle to ensure you can contribute and make a difference from day one.
