Engineering Graduate Programme

Methodical? Forward-thinking? Prepared to stand by your decisions?

If you’ve got it, grow it with Nestlé.

Engineering in the world's largest food company is a challenging prospect, requiring the flexibility to master the different technologies and processes that we use throughout our factories. Engineering Graduates at Nestlé will join a dedicated team in one of our factories, working with some of the world’s biggest and most-loved brands, with fantastic opportunities to learn, develop and progress.

What can you expect?

In order to meet demand for a 24-hour operation and deliver against tough supply chain and customer service targets, our engineers strive to ensure our assets operate with the high efficiencies we expect whilst ensuring safety and food quality. Whether it's chocolate manufacturing, wafer baking, coffee extraction, freeze drying, or high speed wrapping, you'll demonstrate the ability to anticipate problems and the confidence to step in and address issues when they arise. As a Mechanical Engineering Graduate, you should be willing to take on these challenges and contribute from day one.

In your first two years, you'll typically work at two factories across the UK where you'll quickly learn the fundamentals of engineering management within a factory environment. During the programme you will need to demonstrate a passion to understand our manufacturing processes, from detailed mechanical design through to the advanced process control required to make our products. You could quickly find yourself involved in a project to commission a new plant or technology, delivering business improvements around asset maintenance and reliability, or finding ways to reduce energy and waste within our operations. Throughout this time, you will be mentored by a senior engineering professional who will work in conjunction with your line managers to ensure you realise your full potential.

Within our Engineering Graduate programme you'll enjoy the scope to deliver results using your creativity and initiative, and you'll be able to actively continue your development towards Chartered Engineering status. Throughout the programme you’ll have the support of a mentor, a dedicated graduate champion and strong links to our leadership team. We'll encourage you to develop your skills and career through different engineering positions within our factories – opening up possibilities for you to become a Technical Specialist, Engineering Manager, Project Manager, or even to branch out into broader technical management roles.

Who are we looking for?

We're looking for Engineering Graduates who are good communicators and effective decision makers who enjoy taking responsibility and take pride in doing a great job. With the motivation to drive continuous improvement within our factories, you'll also be ready to work across product categories and in various different locations, possibly even abroad, providing unparalleled opportunities for development.
