Engineering Graduate

Still recruiting throughout COVID‑19

Job description

Get ready for a two-year placement in the UK, working alongside some of the best engineering experts in any industry today. Get ready to build the skills that will see you emerging as a fully-fledged Nestlé Engineer at the end. Get ready to develop true intellectual property for engineering solutions.

You’ll go on two 12-month placements. The first gives you the choice to learn about product engineering or to focus on the mechanical side – the design and installation of new equipment relating to new products or technological developments. Either way, you’ll have plenty to keep you busy with other projects running alongside your placement.

The second 12-month placement is all about maintenance and industrial services and getting to know the weird and wonderful machines we use to make our products. There’s all manner of team activities to take part in and you’ll have chance to throw your opinion into reviews with internal and external decision makers.

You’ll be working with key stakeholders and real engineering experts. Mentored to the max. Coached to perfection. Chartership opportunities like you wouldn’t believe, and all this as you work on our top three priority innovation projects. That’s right – top three.

Please note that you can only make one application per annual recruitment intake, so do take time to consider what’s going to suit you best.


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); Membership of the Cereal Partners Pension Plan; access to our Flexible Reward Scheme - where you can take advantage of the benefits that best suit you. Pretty good eh?

What we are looking for

Our engineers are problem solvers who work relentlessly to keep our processes running like clockwork. Problem solvers, remedy makers, visionaries who can even see problems before they occur. Those are the skills we’re after in you.

To qualify, you’ll need a relevant degree, whether it’s mechanical, automation or electrical. What really matters is how ready you are to get to work on your career. And how ready you are to learn what it takes to make the engineering decisions that will shape the future of our business.

An agile learner, team worker, resilient performer who is proud of their work. The perfect package.
