CEMS Career Forum connections: Coca-Cola HBC

Variety everywhere you look

If you live in one of the 28 countries we operate in, you might have a Cappy, Amavita, Dobry or Next Juice for breakfast, a plant-based Adez milk for your cereal or a hot cup of Costa coffee.

During the day you can refresh yourself with one of the many water brands we produce like Avra, Aquarius, bonaqua, Römerquelle, Dorma or Valser. Or you try to fight after-lunch-fatigue with Powerade or Monster Energy drinks.

Not to forget the end of your working day when you enjoy a Fuzetea or if you like mixers, you might fancy our Hard Seltzer Topo Chico, or mix yourself a drink with one of our Kinley tonics.

Ready to go out? Have a look at the bars nearby and you will see some of the brands we sell like Aperol, Brugal, Campari, Highland Park and Jack Daniel´s.

You might not know the whole portfolio, but you probably know the company better than you think!

"It's only been a month since I am a part of Coca Cola, but I've learned so much new: I assisted the representatives and dealt with clients, participated in concluding contracts with clients, created prices for clients, got acquainted with the operation of the marketing department and warehouse shelves. I can plan my time myself so that the work is efficient, and the time is used productively. A very productive month has passed, and I cannot wait for the next challenges I will face in the next two! To opportunities! To trainees! To Coca-Cola HBC for offering such an experience!"
