The EMEA Graduate Rotation Program is a new and exciting 12 month program which welcomes ambitious graduates who would like to begin their career journey within sales and solution engineering.

It is a rotational program designed to give our graduates holistic learning and practical experience across both sales development and solution engineering. Having built the foundational skills and passed all required eligibility and readiness criteria, our graduates can then go on to pursue one of these two clear career paths. Our Top Graduates can potentially promote to the career path of their choice, (depending on business demand) by month 7 of the program.

Our graduate program is a fully immersive program combining comprehensive learning paths, in-role experience, customer interaction and mentorship from senior sales and solution engineering professionals.

At Salesforce, you will have the opportunity to lay the foundations for a successful career in sales & solution engineering and accelerate your career at a fast pace. We are a proud member of Fortune 100 Best Places to Work list for the past 12 years and a consistent winner of Great Places to Work.

What does our New EMEA Graduate Program Look like
The Program is structured as follows:

Introduction Month
During your first month you will have extensive onboarding enablement in a Salesforce-like academy, where you will:

  • Get immersed in the culture of salesforce and truly understand our values
  • Develop an understanding of our solutions, technologies and tools.
  • Learn critical professional skills for your career in salesforce
  • Structured learning calendar with sessions & hands-on workshops led by experts and program alumni

During this Graduate Program you will have the opportunity to experience the Sales Graduate Path and the Solution Engineering Graduate Path. The structure for both are similar, for both you will spend 60% of your time immersed in the role, you will have clear tasks, clear targets and you will align with key stakeholders and the other 40% of your time will be spent on role specific learning. You will be paired with mentors/buddies with experience in the path.

If during your first rotation (months 2 throughout to month 4) are on the Solution Engineering Graduate Rotation, then you will join the Sales Graduate Rotation (from month 5 through to 7) and vice versa. So in the these 6 months you will have exposure to both roles. Your time spent mastering the fundamentals of both these roles during these rotations will empower you to be even more productive and impactful when you eventually promote.

Throughout the rotations there will be self paced certification and skills assessment. You will be required to meet all readiness eligibility criteria before you can Panel for Promotion.
