The Kraft Heinz Company is famous for its datadriven and factbased way of working. Following the recent creation of a new streamlined international structure, the company is hiring a new Talent Management Lead to drive succession planning and talent development initiatives across the International Zone.

The Kraft Heinz Company

With 26 billion in revenue, Kraft Heinz is the fifth-largest food and beverage company in the world. The company owns globally iconic brands such as Kraft, Heinz, Philadelphia and CapriSun as well as local household names such as Venz, de Ruijter, Karvan Cévitam, Roosvicee and Honig in The Netherlands.

Kraft Heinz is aspiring to be the best food company in the world. They strive to have the highest EBITDA margins, grow their top line, own the most beloved brands and sell the highest quality products. To become the best, they hire the most talented people. Their philosophy: human capital is the only way to gain a competitive edge. That’s why Kraft Heinz is only looking to hire the best and is willing to go the extra mile to help them unlock their full potential.


Kraft Heinz gives its employees the freedom to chart their own course. They encourage people to get out of their comfort zone, never accept the status quo, take calculated risks and be creative. At Kraft Heinz, no one is hung up on titles or hierarchy. It’s about what one can do, not what they have done. Outperformers can move quickly through the ranks, regardless of age or experience.

“Kraft Heinz has developed a coherent culture that values performance, not glamour; accomplishments, not age or status; contribution, not title; the talent, not the credentials; simplicity, not outfits; they have created a recipe for success and sustained results.” – Jim Collins about Kraft Heinz in his famous book ‘Good to Great’

The leader of the new entity is Rafael Oliveira, who quickly rose through the ranks since joining the company in 2014.
