I have had the opportunity to grow in many positions and am now State Manager of NSW, QLD & ACT. I enjoy the flexibility, support, challenges the business brings and meeting new people. I believe the only way to do great work is to do what you love. It also helps that I love Lindt chocolate!"

Kiara - Assistant Brand Manager

"Christmas is my favourite time of year, so I have found the perfect role at Lindt. I work on Christmas for 365 days of the year, and no two days are the same. I now can go into stores and see all our hard work come to life through our Christmas product range. When I tell people I work at Lindt, their face lights up, it gives me a sense of pride to be working for a brand and premium product that brings so much joy to people."

Andrea R., Associate Brand Manager

"I joined Lindt & Sprüngli as an International Marketing Trainee in the Autumn of 2017. The program gave me the opportunity to work for 6 months in Italy, Switzerland and China. This incredible experience broadened my personal and professional horizon  and allowed me to meet many passionate, ambitious and genuinely nice people across the globe. What I love about Lindt is that ever one is dedicated to delivering their best and is part of a hugely supportive team; the culture is very much ‘wer're in it together’. After successfully completing the Graduate Program, I am now the Associate Brand Manager for boxed chocolate at Lindt USA. I am very excited for this new opportunity!"

Lorenzo, Master Chocolatier and Key Account Manager

"I have been working at Lindt since 2015. I started as a Master Chocolatier in the Quality Research and Development department, focussing mainly on new product innovation. In 2019, I took on a new position as a Key Account Manager which offered the opportunity to learn about a branch of the business that has always fascinated me. I chose Lindt because it is a solid, serious company, and, most importantly, it deals with chocolate. I love working at Lindt because I can be part of a prestigious brand and make a difference in the creation of excellent products."

Lukas S., Head of Production Planning

"I joined Lindt & Sprüngli in 2010 as a packaging materials planner in the Material & Production Coordination (MPK) department. One year later I was working as a production planner for the hollow figures division. Between 2013 and 2014 I took over the position of Deputy Head of Department while also overseeing AVH Bau or Co-Packing as a production planner. Thanks to further training measures, I’m now the Department Manager MPK.”

Ronald G., Analyst

"Lindt has allowed me to boost my career through various roles. I began as a merchandiser in Florida and was offered the opportunity to join the Sales Team as an analyst for one of the top drug-channel retailers in the US. Lindt has also financially supported me while I obtained my MBA degree. Working here has been an enriching experience from all perspectives and this is why I feel fortunate to be part of such a great group of professionals."
