GENERAL MILLS LONG-TERM PARTNERSHIP
General Mills is a global consumer goods business with leading brands including Latina, Old El Paso and Betty Crocker. As part of their global footprint, General Mills has two manufacturing facilities and a Head Office across Victoria and New South Wales, and from a category share to localised size perspective, punch well above their weight as a leader in the Australian FMCG landscape. They have diverse talent requirements that span the breadth of Six Degrees’ service offerings, that includes permanent and contract recruitment across our specialist disciplines. With a mandate to attract, engage and retain best practice FMCG talent for their Australian operations, Six Degrees has been partnering with General Mills for over eight years to deliver on this requirement.
Having totally immersed ourselves with key stakeholders and the General Mills business we have developed an innate understanding of what best practice talent is applicable for General Mills. Across the “enabling functions” of sales, marketing, supply chain, procurement, engineering and operations, we have supported the business by identifying and delivering over 25 roles, many of which have become local and global senior leaders.
We’ve built an enduring, long-term partnership with General Mills. This cohesion has allowed us to anticipate and actively plan for talent requirements, rather than simply respond to a transactional need. General Mills have benefited from our depth of knowledge of their business, culture and future strategies, as we have been able to connect them with talent that is totally aligned. The foundations of our partnership has been built on placing talent that have thrived in their environment.
