Job Description

What does the role involve?

As technology advances, our grocery shopping habits are undergoing a radical transformation – and digital innovation is the powerhouse behind it. Due to these developments, online sales within FMCG organizations are becoming ever more important. Working in eCommerce you will be at the forefront of shaping the future of our industry, including what, how and where we buy.

With online grocery shopping rising at a phenomenal pace, PepsiCo is placing a big bet on the online channel as one of the key future growth drivers. eCommerce already accounts for roughly $1 billion in PepsiCo’s annual global retail sales and shows significant year on year growth rates.

To support us in achieving our eCommerce ambitions, we are looking for an enthusiastic intern for a period of 6 months starting from February/March 2020.

  • In this role you will report to the eCommerce account manager and work closely with the different sales teams, brand managers, digital marketers and eCommerce counterparts at our retailers.

  • An important responsibility will be analyzing eCommerce activities (e.g. promotions) at different retailers, gain insights and present the recommendations to the sales teams.

  • Also, you will be continuously searching for the latest eCommerce trends by doing weekly retail checks and translate them into opportunities for our brands. This is often followed by participating in projects to enhance PepsiCo’s visibility on the retailers’ webpages.

  • Therefore, you will collaborate with retailers such as Albert Heijn, Jumbo, PLUS, Hoogvliet, Picnic, Delhaize (BE), Colruyt (BE) and wholesalers such as Sligro and Bidfood.

  • Other tasks might include supporting the omnichannel launch of new products and the roll out of brand campaigns.

  • There will also be a room for space to set up your own projects in order to work out your commercial ideas and pitch them to the wider PepsiCo organization and/or retailers.

What do we offer you?

At PepsiCo, we are not only proud of our market leading brands, but also attach great value to growth opportunities and personal development. Next to working with inspirational and creative colleagues, we offer sufficient training opportunities to give our professionals the opportunity to achieve great results. At PepsiCo we foster an informal working atmosphere and value everyone’s input and ideas. No day is ever the same and you will constantly be challenged to bring out your best! PepsiCo was rewarded this year once again with the Top Employer Nederland and Top Employer Europe certification.

In addition to your rewarding job function, we offer excellent working conditions that go hand in hand. For example, you get remunerated for your role as an intern, get to take home goodies from the company every Friday and are given multiple chances to connect with the other interns (25-30), to name a few!
