Why work at Nestlé?

Here at Nestlé, we are driven by a simple aim. As the world’s leading Nutrition, Health and Wellness Company, we are committed to enhancing people’s lives, everywhere, every day. This means creating long-term sustainable value for consumers, communities and colleagues alike – through the brands, support and careers we offer.

The opportunity

We have created a fulfilling working environment that puts the emphasis on individual responsibility, opportunity and autonomy. We’ll encourage your growth through continuous development, on-the-job training, mentoring programmes, and access to our International Training Centre in Switzerland. Equally, you’ll be able to tap into the deep-rooted expertise in our business by exposure to like-minded people. There is the potential to gain experience overseas – we’ve over 2,000 expatriates in some 96 countries – but equally we never overlook local talent. In fact, almost 60% of our senior managers are born and bred locally.

Meanwhile, we’ll support your personal growth with a people-focused culture, parental leave practices and a flexible and diverse working environment. We encourage our people to view their career as a journey; to think long-term about how they broaden their exposure or deepen their skills. Adopt this mindset and you’ll find we are equally forward-thinking, recognising that your career priorities will change and flex over time.

The challenge

As supportive as we are, it’s important not to under-estimate the challenge. Excelling here means sharing our passion for enhancing lives, living up to our exemplary standards of integrity, honesty and fair dealing, and taking ownership of your future. Do this and you’ll soon discover that our 2,000 leading brands, our emphasis on growth and our scope will make this a unique career environment for experienced, driven professionals from every discipline.

What could be improved?

I believe things have changed a lot since i worked there. Positions are cut in Switzerland to be sent elsewhere and employees no longer enjoy many of the benefits they used to have.

Low-skilled managers, heavy workload

What works well?

The offices, logistics, IT equipment and working conditions are of high quality. The staff restaurant is good and the price is good. The location of the offices is good.

What could be improved?
