Leadership and training opportunities
At Fosters, we wholeheartedly support the advancement of our people to reach their full potential; leadership and skills being key foundations for great communities.
Personal development is not just offered, it’s encouraged. And we put a lot of emphasis on developing career pathways for our staff.
For the last few years, Fosters has been working with Wintec Te Pukenga to create leadership training programmes – we now have a junior, intermediate and senior training programme. Each year, we earmark leaders from across the Fosters business and invite them to join a leadership training programme relevant to their career progression.
Foster leadership graduates have a clear career pathway within Fosters, otherwise they are bound to add significant value wherever they work in future – as well-rounded business and community leaders.
