WELCOME

We welcome you to Pepsico High Flyers.

A programme specially designed to give you the opportunity to showcase your talent.

THE BUTTERFLY EFFECT

Why did we use the butterfly as a symbol for Pepsico High Flyers?

The Butterfly Effect Theory suggests that the power released by one butterfly wing flap can amplify over time to eventually affect weather conditions thousands of miles away! It is thus said that just one butterfly wing flap in the Amazon can cause rain in China. The starting point of a young person’s career marks their entire professional progress. Your Initial Choices influence your Career in the Long Term.

Discover your career opportunities at Pepsico.
