About Nestlé UK & Ireland

We’re Nestlé. The largest food and drink manufacturer in the world. Sounds impressive? Well when you take an even closer look, it’ll blow you away! Starting life more than 150 years ago when Henri Nestlé created his first cereal, we now have more than 2,000 products that we sell in 189 countries. We’re talking the likes of KitKat, Nescafé and Felix – brands so well known and loved, they’ve become a major feature in everyday life!

Having led the way globally on creating delicious food and drinks, we’re aiming to do the same in other areas important to us. And that’s why we’re committed to reducing our environmental impact to zero and to improving the lives of the 30 million livelihoods connected to our organisation. It’s all about inspiring people to live better, healthier lives, not only by improving our products, but also by putting something back – helping out community partners, farmers and generally making what we do more sustainable and beneficial for all. If you get out what you put in, then it makes sense to give back too! No brainer really.

And it’s not just our many products that we carefully source the right mix of ingredients for. The same goes for our Early Careers programmes. We blend individuals from all walks of life, with a whole range of experience and they work together as a team – really, really hard – and out come amazing results. That’s how we became a world leading business. And that’s how we attract the most curious minds to our team. Because they know, that at Nestlé, they’ll be given loads of support, so they can be the best they can be. Fancy experiencing that too? Find out what it takes and apply for 2020 today.
