Business Leadership Program - Marketing BLP

Job Description:
Business Leadership Program Overview:
Does the future excite and intrigue you? Are you passionate about influencing change? Do you want the opportunity not just to adapt to trends, but create new ones? If you answered yes to any of these questions, Synchrony Financial's Business Leadership Program is for you. (Not familiar with Synchrony Financial? We're publicly traded (NYSE:SYF), a leader in consumer finance and have been around for 80+ years! Read more below).
The Business Leadership Program (BLP) is a two year, three-rotation accelerated leadership development program within one of 10 functional tracks (Credit, Data Analytics, Enterprise Operations, Finance, HR, Internal Audit, IT, Marketing, Risk Management, Sales & Relationship Management). The rotational assignments empower participants to build deep, functional expertise within a specific track while empowering and challenging you to develop broad based industry and business acumen. One of the ways this is done is through our sponsorship of two, month-long cross-functional, customer experiences designed to expose you to different areas of our business.
While on program, you will work alongside and learn from experienced professionals who will challenge you to develop your skills in an accelerated work environment. In addition, we believe all Synchrony Financial team members should understand the value of giving back. That's why BLP participants will have the option to complete a program sponsored, one-month community service project.
We believe in looking forward in a constantly changing industry, so our program is tailored to ensure that you're ready for what's around the corner. While no one can predict the future, together we can embrace the excitement of staying a step ahead. Together we can engage your career. Together we can think forward.
Marketing Career Track Description:
A BLP Marketing Track member will gain experience in strategic marketing, market analysis, market segmentation, product management, innovation, brand management, communications and advertising. Training is designed to develop key marketing capabilities, and strengthen leadership skills. After the completion of the program, there will be various career opportunities within the marketing function, based upon candidate preference, business need and rotation experience.
BLP Perks:
Our people are why we're successful, period. So we reward them with a wide variety of benefits that keep our team healthy and happy. In addition to industry-renowned training, exposure to senior leadership, competitive pay and immediate access to benefits when you join us, we also offer our BLP participants:

Your BLP assignment with Synchrony Financial may not be close to home (how exciting!). And that's one of the leaps we'll expect you take. But we've got your back (and your moving van).
