As part of the training programme, JBS will offer 23 positions across 16 Carnes plants in five different Brazilian states.
To apply for the programme, JBS has urged candidates to enrol through its website by 14 February, and, if successful, training will commence from April.
The meatpacker is targeting engineers who have graduated within the last three years and hold a degree in a range of different engineering courses, such as production mechanics, materials and processes, as well as many more.
JBS’ corporate human resources director Veronica Coelho said: “This is the first edition of the Engineer Training Program, which will include training modules focusing on both technical training and people management.”
She added: “The initiative’s big difference is the fact it is based on JBS’ seven values – Ownership Attitude, Determination, Discipline, Availability, Openness, Humility and Simplicity – which reflect the type of behaviour and attitudes we expect from our staff and which we continue to disseminate at all levels of the company.”
JBS recently appointed Gilberto Tomazoni as the firm’s new global chief executive officer, with responsibility for overseeing the business’ global strategy.
