I stay at Coca‑Cola HBC because of the innovations we’re involved in. We have the chance to innovate in our business every year as there are always new things we want to launch in the market and improve.
At Coca‑Cola Hellenic Bottling Company (CCHBC) we’re not afraid of change! We’re always trying to challenge ourselves, trying to do things outside the box.
CCHBC is a very interesting place to work because the values of the company resonate with me, and it has provided me the chance to realise my dreams.
I first started thinking about Coca‑Cola as an employer when I was young and living in Zagreb. There was a huge bottle sign on a building along my commute, and I always told my parents I would work for a company like that.
I joined Coca‑Cola Hellenic Bottling Company (CCHBC) as part of the Management Trainee programme in Bulgaria five years ago, and now I am GA Reporting and Analysis Team lead for BSO located in Bulgaria.
The main reason I joined Coca‑Cola Hellenic Bottling Company (CCHBC) as part of the Management Trainee Programme was for the learning.
10 years ago, I started as a maintenance technician at Coca‑Cola Hellenic Bottling Company (CCHBC) before I got the opportunity to become Production Manager – and then Plant Manager – when all of the Romerquelle operations were moved to the small village of Edelstal.
The best thing about Coca‑Cola Hellenic Bottling Company is the people. They are highly motivated, highly skilled and always willing to help.
Working at CCHBC is like being home. I just change from one home to another. I can spend 24 hours here and still feel fresh. I love the people around me at Coca‑Cola Hellenic Bottling Company.
CCHBC is my first employer. I wanted to join a big multinational company in the Fast Moving Consumer Goods sector and CCHBC is one of the biggest in Greece.
For me the key value is to be authentic and at Coca‑Cola HBC I can – I'm not compromising my principles in my daily job and when communicating with my managers.
I joined CCHBC because of its brands. They’re everywhere – in cafés, hotels, in small shops in the neighbourhood and in the supermarkets. I also wanted to gain experience in a multinational company.
I had just finished my degree and I wanted to join a multinational company, so I was looking for a position that would really help me learn and give me international exposure. CCHBC was in the market at the time, looking for new recruits.
One of the things that attracted me to the company most was the impressive product portfolio and the strength of the brand, which resonates with people around the world as an emotional touchstone.
In Belarus, it’s sometimes difficult to move up in state owned or local companies and it can be difficult to understand how to get from one role to another. But in Coca‑Cola Hellenic Bottling Company (CCHBC), it’s different, it’s very clear.
Coca‑Cola has great history, which means great quality, good processes, constant improvement and growth, and safety. I saw the Coca‑Cola Hellenic Bottling Company Management Trainee Programme RISE as an investment in myself.
"Every day I learn something more. I don't think I am done learning, not at all. Each day is a new day, and it’s great."
"We put in a lot of effort to develop our people. But we don’t push people down any specific path or programme, we encourage them to be curious. There are great opportunities to grow here, which is different from other companies. Through CCHBC there are opportunities to move to other countries and explore other business units."

Having a helpful confidant at defining moments can make a big difference**. But how do you get a mentor? How do you know if that person is right for your development?
