The DS Smith Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship – Spring 2020 start dates

DS Smith is pleased to confirm the Spring 2020 start dates of the Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship (CMDA) for our current and aspiring future managers.

You make a difference!

We aim to engage and excite our colleagues in what we want to achieve as a business.

Culture of ambition and accountability

We are building a culture of ambition and accountability and offering the chance for everyone to feel fully aligned with our core values of being caring, challenging, trusted, responsive and tenacious.

These values guide how we make decisions and shape company policies and practices, influencing both individual employee behaviour and organisational culture. They can help us on our way to achieving our strategic goals and meeting the needs of all of our stakeholders.

One of the ways we are supporting our people to deliver on this aim is by developing the professional management capabilities of our current and future managers through academic programmes like the CMDA.

Please find below information about the UCQ CMDA, including instructions on how to apply. If you would like to apply to join the March 2020 intake at one of UCQ’s centres, please download and return the application form as directed, indicating your preferred location:
