What can you expect?

On your 12-month Placement you’ll get involved with business-critical projects. The big stuff. Making decisions that affect all areas of Nestlé. But don’t worry, you’ll be helped every step of the way by our team of seasoned experts.

You’ll have the choice of being placed in one of three areas of our business.

The ‘Ensuring Supply’ Placement focuses on helping to keep our production lines and the many products they create moving. At a company our size, that gives you a lot to sink your teeth into. You’ll be responsible for supporting Technical, Production and Supply Chain operations with the systems and processes they use throughout the UK and Ireland. You’ll be listening to people’s concerns and delivering solutions that will make their lives easier. Problem-solvers and trouble-shooters end up being very popular.

Land a Placement in Finance and we’ll give you unbridled insight into what makes our business tick. You’ll provide support for all aspects of Finance from accounts payable and receivable, to banking, factory costing to exports, including intermarket supply operations. There’s a lot to take in (like we said, we’re a large business) but you’ll emerge a year later as an expert in your field.

On the Commercial Support Placement you’ll play a crucial role in supporting SAP Customer Relationship Management (CRM). That means you’ll be working closely with the teams that sell our products and develop our many famous brands. Talking to them and our international colleagues, will help you find new ways to make their systems run smoother and smarter. Your strategic thinking will help give our Commercial team the edge!

Based in York or Gatwick, we’ll expose you to a whole range of Nestlé businesses within the UK and Ireland. This level of exposure to the inner workings of one of the world’s largest food and drink manufacturers is not an opportunity that should be overlooked!

Who are we looking for?

This is an opportunity for someone with bags of drive and enthusiasm. We are looking for people nearing the end of their degree who are looking ahead thinking; ‘what do I want from my career?’

We want you to see this as an opportunity to demonstrate to us what we would be missing if we didn’t take you on permanently once you have graduated! Show us how you can tackle a range of challenges head-on. Bring us an innovative ‘can-do’ approach and show us solutions based on your analysis that we can help you implement.

This placement will immerse you in a world of learning and give you immense access to our experts’ experience and knowledge. You need an agile approach to learning, to get a real kick out of problem-solving and to thrive in a fast-paced, quick-changing environment. So if you can become a core part of the team and communicate well with people right across the business, we’ll help you emerge at the end of your Placement with the skills necessary to create an amazing long-term career.

Please note that you can only make one application per annual recruitment intake, so do take time to consider what’s going to suit you best. You must have the right to work in the UK. 

Applications for 2020/21 will be opening on 28th September.
