Food Manufacturing Apprenticeship - York

Still recruiting throughout COVID‑19

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 two-and-half year programme where you will gain new skills and more ideas than you ever imagined possible. You’ll have loads of support on top of your in-role training as there’s also a chance to experience a bit of student life as you study at one of our learning centres in Lincoln or Somerset. You’ll have different college modules to work on and it’s a great opportunity to meet other Nestlé Apprentices from around the country. The fresh ideas this inspires will help us to improve what we have, to innovate and to keep our world-class manufacturing operations moving forward.

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 are we 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 or before), including Maths and English Language. You’ll have to be 18+ by the 1st September 2021. 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.

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. You must have the right to work in the UK.
