Supply Chain Apprenticeship

Still recruiting throughout COVID‑19

Job description

You can expect plenty from a Supply Chain Apprenticeship with the world’s largest food and drink manufacturer. We source products from all over the world. Our production processes never stop. Each of those facts, alone, makes Supply Chain one of the most essential functions within our business.

Supply Chain make sure that each department knows what to do to get our products to the customer without a hitch. With forward planning, problem solving and team work you’ll make our products’ journey from raw ingredients to on-the-shelf as smooth and cost-effective as possible.

It’s forecasting, it’s manufacturing, it’s negotiating, it’s delivering – all on time and into stores, issue free. And you’ll learn all about it over three years, from end-to-end. On-the-job, in the classroom and face-to-face with customers, suppliers and factory associates.

Guess what else? You’ll start your Apprenticeship in York and experience the end-to-end supply chain process, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg, remember we’re the world’s largest food and drink manufacturer. Your career could take you all over the UK as you work towards becoming a Level 3 Supply Chain Practitioner. Who knows where you’ll end up travelling?

Who are we looking for?

We want people who are full of energy to get out there, get straight into the world of work and dedicate all that passion to a career with huge development potential. This is your chance to get right into the thick of it in a serious role you can be proud of.

So it’s all about great networking skills, a proper analytical eye that can pick out the details and a sense of innovation. If there’s something that hasn’t been tried, and it feels commercially sound, you’ll want to try it. Even if it challenges our usual process.

If you’re prepared to give it your all in an exciting and fast-paced real-world learning environment, this is it. To qualify, you’ll have to be 18 plus by the 1 September 2021 and be prepared to move around the country for your placements. You’ll need five GCSEs or equivalent (actual or predicted), graded 9-4 (or A*-C if awarded before 2017), which must include maths and English language. You might even have an ICT qualification too, though this isn’t a must.

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.

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); Membership 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?
