How long is the program?

The EHS Leadership Development Program is two years long.  Participants are assigned to three US locations during their two years in the program, each providing a different manufacturing experience. The first assignment will typically be one year in duration followed with two assignments that are each six months in duration.  The assignments will likely require relocation.

Participants will also be required to travel to Parker’s corporate headquarters in Cleveland, Ohio approximately every six months for program review, personal development and interaction with fellow program participants and mentor/coaches.

What kind of compensation is offered?

East participant is offered:

  • A competitive salary

  • A 401(k) savings plan
  • Company-paid relocation
  • Company-paid business travel expenses

What opportunities are available after the development program ends?

Parker recognizes the value of the experience and knowledge gained by the program participants. Prior to the end of the program term, the program participant is usually extended an opportunity to have a permanent position in a role as a site EHS leader responsible for some or all aspects of EHS management at a Parker manufacturing location. The role may require further relocation so a participant’s flexibility to move is an important consideration in the offer.
