Food Manufacturing Apprenticeship - York

Job description

We make some of the most popular confectionery on earth. Ever heard of KitKat or Polos? Exactly. Now we’re going to let you into the secret of how we do it. The science behind the process. How we solve problems in Manufacturing, how we set our standards, how we coach others to keep those standards.

It’s a three-year programme that’s going to show you more than you ever imagined you could learn. Your fresh ideas will help us to improve what we have, to innovate and to keep our world-class manufacturing operations moving forward.

But you won’t be on your own. You’ll have loads of support and on top of your in-role training, combined with learning at college too! Here, during your first two years, you’ll have different college modules to work on. It’s a great opportunity to experience a bit of the student lifestyle and to meet other Nestlé Apprentices from around the country.

But it’s about a lot more than just networking. You’ll also cover key topics to get you thinking, learning and understanding manufacturing. All this will help you become a great networker, an agile learner and a resilient performer. Oh and let’s not forget the Level 3 Advanced Food & Drink Process Operator Apprenticeship qualification you’ll take away with you. If ever there was a reason to feel proud – this is it.

Who we are looking for
We want difference makers, value adders, boundary breakers. People who know what it takes to make it in the world’s largest food and drink manufacturer. Sure you’re going to need 5 GCSEs or equivalent (actual or predicted) at grades 9-4 (or A*-C if received in 2017 of before), including Maths and English. You’ll have to be 18 plus by the 1st September 2020. But it’s your attitude and your ambition that are going to drive that difference, so bring it on.

Are you committed? Are you commercially minded? Are you such a hard worker that you’re going to build a lasting career before your peers going to uni even start one? Well, you know where we are, then.

Benefits
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); m embership 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?
