Closing date: 

We’re Nestlé. The largest food and drink manufacturer in the world. We put delicious ingredients into our 2,000 products and out come world-beating brands like KitKat and Nespresso. Well, 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!

What can you expect?

Supply Chain at Nestlé is a very wide ranging area, made up of lots of different teams involved at the start of a product’s life. From finding the ingredients through to getting the product into the hands of our customers and consumers, think coffee bean to Nescafé’

Keeping the conversation flowing between all the different parts of Nestlé, our suppliers and our customers. Problem-solving on-the-fly, thinking logically and putting those serious people skills of yours to use. You’ll turn your specialist insight into solid plans, to ensure our famous products reach the hands of consumers across the world.

Your training will see you hitting all the different parts of the company and all the different processes – it could see you helping source the best raw materials to organising the delivery of KitKat to customers – so you get a full understanding of how it all works together. And you’ll put into practice everything you learn.

You’ll be getting about, travelling to sites up and down the country to get involved in real projects across different areas of the business. You’ll talk to our customers, help negotiate contracts and look at sales forecasting, all with a focus on sustainability, recycling and cost-effectiveness. It’ll be a packed couple of years made up of three placements, but you’ll come away bursting with specialist know-how, learned from experienced professionals.   

And there’s huge potential. Located all over the UK, Supply Chain covers roles like Logistics (which is Transport and Warehousing), Procurement (sourcing everything from recycled plastic to milk) and Demand Planning (figuring out how much we’re going to sell). The scope is massive.

Who are we looking for?

People who think things through, who see problems before they occur and, if they do, can take steps to remedy them quickly. This role is about challenging the norm – seeing the way we do things and daring to find a better way.

We want people who’ll take a front seat in the decision-making process. After all, you’ll be shaping the future of Nestlé driving our sustainability agenda. How do you think we made it to 150 years old? By hiring people like you, of course.

So if you’re just out of uni with a decent degree and are champing at the bit to put your big ideas into action, let’s chat. We think we might have a lot in common.


We’re committed to improving people’s lives in everything we do. And that includes our employees. We want you to love your job and to feel rewarded for the contribution you make, so you can expect a competitive salary, plus all sorts of benefits. These include an Annual Bonus (as long as you meet certain criteria); Shift Allowance (where applicable); Membership of the Nestlé UK or Nestlé Ireland Pension Fund; access to our Flexible Reward Scheme - where you can take advantage of the benefits that best suit you. And, if you work in our York or Gatwick Head Offices, you can even bring your four legged friend to work! Pretty good eh?
