Supply Chain Development Program (SCDP)

This program is a 24-month rotational leadership program consisting of 3 different assignments across Dover’s global business segments. In each assignment, participants will take meaningful supply chain functional roles at Dover’s various operating companies, as well as its corporate offices, for approximately 8 months each.
