Thai Union Recruits Next Generation of Leaders for Management Associate Program

24 MARCH 2021, BANGKOK – Thai Union Group PCL is providing opportunities for the next generation of leaders as it recruits young and talented professionals for its 2021 Management Associate Program.

The Thai Union MA Program is a three-year competitive leadership fast-track program for people seeking a launch pad to a fulfilling career. The program exposes participants to all aspects of Thai Union's business and senior management, accompanied by a strong mentorship framework.

This year, young professionals will be given the chance to work in different business units at Thai Union, including Sales & Marketing, Manufacturing, Digital Technology and Human Resources.

“The Management Associate program @TU aims to bring together professional growth (of talented, collaborative and committed individuals) and corporate growth of the group,” said Kulshaan Singh, Chief HR Officer at Thai Union. “After a rigorous selection process, our Management Associates work on the most challenging and impactful global opportunities under mentorship of the most senior leaders at TU. At the successful completion of the program, our Management Associates take on positions of significant responsibility and impact.”

Kalyarat Jullapak is part of the current batch of management associates at Thai Union, where she has been working with Group Finance to learn more about the financial management aspect of the Company.

“This program allows me to make a meaningful impact, by providing me with the support to unlock my potential and be mentored by some of the top leaders of Thai Union,” she said.

For Panu Boonsong, who is involved with Thai Union’s Sustainability Development team, he has been inspired by the opportunity to work with a Thai company at a global level and be involved in a challenging work environment.

“It is perfectly designed for candidates looking for a work environment that challenges them to grow, whilst giving them opportunities to develop themselves within multiple business functions,” Panu said.

Supakorn Middleton has been working with the Sales & Marketing team as part of her MA Program, which she said provides her with important career development.
