Manufacturing Career Area

Ever wondered how we are making our delicious Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate or unique Oreo cookies and how you can contribute to constantly improve our products and processes for our consumers?

We’ve made manufacturing an exact science, but we’re continually looking to be better at what we do.

So we use Integrated Lean 6 Sigma (IL6S), a Mondelēz International organization capability based on three proven methodologies: Lean 6 Sigma, Total Productive Maintenance and High Performance Work Systems. IL6S aims to create a culture which is focusing on eliminating all losses at our plants and achieving zero safety incidents through fully engaged and empowered employees.

We rely on skilled people who relish taking ownership of their work and want to make a difference every day. People who develop their skills further across all disciplines to grow in the organization and who can ensure the safety of themselves and colleagues while manufacturing top-quality for our consumers.

This is why we equip everyone in Manufacturing with a broad range of capabilities.
