What insiders say about…
I am in charge of coordinating and distributing national internal communications from head office marketing and sales teams out to the field teams (reps and store staff in both trade and retail businesses), I also develop demonstration material for our reps to train in store team members on our products.
In the workplace, the culture at DuluxGroup is extremely involving and supportive. In practice, the hierarchy is very flat - graduates often work closely with senior managers on important projects. New and less experienced people are made to feel valued and part of the team. Outside of work, the culture is engaging. Colleagues will often catch up for meals or drinks to celebrate special events.
Phone interview, psychometric assessment, Face to face interview. There has also been introduced a more targeted recruitment process including a work sample exercise including a presentation.
Questions about my previous work experience? projects I worked on, significant value adding tasks I performed for the business. Questions about what I can bring to the business Questions about my approach to a tricky social situation
Be yourself, talk to your strengths, come prepared with good examples of past project work and social dilemmas you overcame.
Most areas of the company are very flexible, provided you are working well and are prepared to take on all challenges that come your way. The time you come in, leave or work from home is mostly up to you.
Pay at my company is very good and above average.
Free tickets and vouchers when you are recognised to have put in extra effort and got results.
Managers make themselves approachable and make an effort to get the most out of employees.
Training could improve. There are a lot of processes that have a "sink or swim" attitude related to them. I think this is the area which needs the most focus within DuluxGroup.
Internal promotion is often a preference to fill positions but it is also highly competitive, you need to have excelled in your current role and be good at networking with the right people, have a good development plan and be planting the right seeds to be considered for your next step in Marketing. In other functions it might be different but there are always several internal applicants when marketing roles become available.
Everyone is accepted and given equal opportunity at DuluxGroup. Women are supported to return to work following family leave.
My employer expects each employee to participate in community projects and encourages involvement in extracurricular charities. They also run fundraisers for popular foundations such as Beyond Blue and Cancer Council.
You need to drive here, it is difficult to take public transport but there is parking for everyone. The location is good for me but not central for many people. There is an onsite cafe, the technology is always adequately provided and there's kitchenettes and toilets on every floor. People are able to dress fairly relaxed (corporate casual) or as corporate as they like, Friday is a casual day in our department. Men often wear shirts and pants but not really ties or jackets. Women often wear business skirts or slacks and a neat top, jeans are not really acceptable except on Fridays, but it is more of an unspoken rule.
They are getting better but I don't think many businesses are serious about this beyond what the wider public expect of them and the public has fairly low standards for reducing their carbon footprint in my opinion.Join us to bookmark!
