At Lindt, Finance plays a pivotal role in enabling the business to achieve its objectives through effective control of the financial environment. To help achieve our ambitions we are further defined into two sub functions, Commercial Finance and Accounting. The Accounting function is the technical side of finance.

The best thing about working at Lindt is the friendly environment and the opportunities to learn and grow. My job is always evolving allowing me to develop.
At Lindt, Marketing plays a pivotal role in driving penetration growth by maximising the mental and physical availability of our brands. Working in Marketing requires a diverse skill set: amongst other things you need the analytical skills to join the dots of research and manage a P&L, the collaborative skills to partner with our retail partners to deliver outstanding premium visibility in-store and the creative skills to harness the power of our agencies and unlock a spark of magic. Ultimately Lindt Marketers need to have a passion for understanding the consumer and an ability to bring our great Brands to life.
I am extremely grateful for the opportunities and support that Lindt has given me throughout the various international moves that I have undertaken in my career which has allowed me to continue to learn, grow and develop within my field. The UK team has been so warm and welcoming, and the team spirit and collaborative approach makes me feel inspired every day. I am so proud to work for a brand and company like Lindt.
Our People & Culture team play a pivotal support role for the store teams and are the glue that bring together commercial planning, marketing and operations to ensure we deliver the annual plan.

I love that I have a great degree of control and freedom within my job, where no day is the same and there is always something interesting going on.

Our Head Office National Accounts Team do this by building close partnerships with our retailers whilst supporting the commercial operation of the business via our Business Operations Team.

I was attracted to Lindt because I wanted the opportunity to make an impact in a growing business working with market leading brands. We have a clear plan, we achieve great things and we believe in what we do. All this while having lots of fun along the way!
Insight and Category Management puts the consumer and shopper at the heart of our plans, by focusing on insight to understand their behaviour. With this insight, we are able to develop great brand and category plans, to influence customers and ensure Lindt brands have outstanding visibility throughout the shopper journey in store.
I was excited to join Lindt because of its reputation as a company that focuses on the development and wellbeing of its employees as well as the fantastic brands I would get to work on. Lindt has more than delivered on these expectations and it is genuinely a company that I am proud to tell people I work for.
I was taught at university that a company’s unique selling point is their employees and working at Lindt I have experienced why this is true. What makes Lindt really special is the people who work here (as well as the chocolate!). I transitioned role from Field Sales to Head Office, and the supportive and trusting culture is unchanged throughout these different business areas. I feel inspired to grow, develop and evolve, and this is down to our fantastic people.
