Mars Finance Leadership Experience
MARS FINANCE LEADERSHIP EXPERIENCE (MFLE)
How high do you want to go? If you’ve set your sights on the top then the Mars Finance Development Program is a great start. Because you’ll find alumni of our MFLE program leading businesses in many sectors, as Strategic Leaders. At Mars you’ll grow beyond your current aspirations and develop the whole you.
HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS?
During these 3 years on the MFLE, you will work on 3 different placements: for example a supply-focused role, a consumer-focused role and a financial control role. One of these placements will be based in another European country in any of our categories (Chocolate, Petcare or Food) ensuring you get the invaluable international experience you need to make it to the top.
WHAT THE FUTURE HOLDS?

You could be a finance manager with a team of your own and be well on your way to a job as a senior strategic financial leader within Mars.
