Manufacturing Intern

Job description

Get ready for 10 weeks learning what goes down in the world’s largest food and drink manufacturer. That’s some serious career insight. Who else gets that part way through uni? Oh and you’ll be given a real-life project with actual business-critical impact. Did we mention that?

You could be based out of one of our different UK sites, but you’ll get to travel all over the place. So you’ll be doing things like process improvement – so we can bring down the cost of our products while still keeping the quality absolutely stellar. Hey, you might even help us develop a whole new line of products, showing us that you’re such hot stuff that we’ll want you back next year on our Graduate Scheme!

There’ll be key business projects. There’ll be state-of-the-art facilities. There’ll be the biggest food brands on the globe right there in front of you with your name on them, saying “_______’s project”! For real. We’ll give you all the support you need to understand what goes on here in Manufacturing so you walk out of here with the hunger to come back soon.

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?

Find out what it takes and apply for 2020 today.

About Nestle
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 we are looking for

You know who we’re not looking for? Wall flowers. This isn’t one of those 10-week placements where you’ll just fade into the background and show us how quiet and unassuming you are. We want articulate, confident risk-takers with the kind of resilience that sees you bouncing back from setbacks and going for it again and again. Team managers, coaches, people developers – these are the kinds of people we’re building here, so you have to have a bit of that in you already.

Now you’re in your penultimate year at uni, you’ve become an organised, improvement-focused analyst with a serious taste for getting the job done right. Plus you’ve learned how to network like nobody’s business. So what are you waiting for?
