As a business built on 150+ years of innovation, it’s crucial that we encourage applications from the most diverse range of people. You see, every Nestlé person is different from the next. And that’s what makes each of us so valuable to the business. Our ideas and approaches to work are influenced by our huge variety of backgrounds, enabling us to look at every single challenge from multiple perspectives.

  • We’ve prioritised gender balance since 2008 and have, therefore, increased the number of women at all levels within the company.
  • As one of the world’s biggest food and beverage manufacturers, we’re also in an excellent position to do more than most to promote a culture that includes people with disabilities. As a result, we’ve been delivering training and awareness raising, return-to-work practice for people with disabilities and ensuring the accessibility of sites with appropriate workplace arrangements.
  • Despite progress in the UK, Stonewall research shows that many LGBT+ people still face daily discrimination and the legislative and social landscape is constantly changing for people who identify as LGBT+. That’s why we’ve partnered with Stonewall, to demonstrate our commitment to improving inclusion for LGBT+ people in our workplace.

These are just some examples of the work we’re doing. Don’t think we’re showing off or flag waving. We know that this work is essential rather than something we have any right to feel proud of. In fact, the only reason we’re putting this information out there is so you know that, when you join us, your individuality will be welcomed and valued as a core part of what makes our business so successful.

Difference makes us more creative and innovative. It enables us to make better decisions by having a multitude of opinions. It makes us happier and more comfortable at work. It’s good for everyone. That’s why we aim to be inclusive, regardless of age, gender, race, sexuality, religion or disability, and we oppose any form of unfair discrimination.

We’re also committed to continuing to develop policies, procedures and practices that actively promote equality of opportunity and optimise our people’s abilities. These principles of equality of opportunity are behind all our decisions relating to the recruitment, employment, training, progression, assessment and retention of our people.
