Supply Chain Level-Three Apprenticeship - York

Supply Chain Level-Three Apprenticeship - York

Job description

Nestlé Academy has built its reputation as a continual innovator over a history of more than a century and a half. So, for an ambitious Food Manufacturing Apprentice, it really is the best of both worlds. A safe, secure business with which to build a successful career but, also, the kind of employer that encourages you to try new ways of doing things.

That’s why we’re now looking for people who love exploring ideas. Does that sound like you? Have you been looking for a head-start in your career? Looking at your options and opportunities? That bold, impressive ability to look critically at your choices is just what we want to see from the next generation of Nestlé innovators.

What can you expect?
As the world’s largest food manufacturer, we source from across the globe. Production never stops and our supply chain is a vital part of what it takes to keep us moving. To make sure our customers are never disappointed, we need to keep stock at optimum levels. This is no mean feat and means our supply chain team have to ensure that raw materials from all over the world are sourced, forecasted, manufactured and delivered onto the shelf, on time and in full, ready for consumers to purchase. This takes responsive manufacturing and agile logistics and delivery, all at the lowest possible cost.

Who are we looking for?
We’re after individuals who just need the chance to show how they can make a difference, add value and excel. We’re the largest food and drinks manufacturer in the world, so this is a unique opportunity for ambitious individuals who want to become a supply chain expert. It’s a chance for you to pursue your passion for networking, analysis, love of working as part of a team and demonstrate your eye for detail and qualities as a true innovator.

The opportunity starts in September 2019. To be considered, you will need: five GCSEs or equivalent (actual or predicted) at grades 9 - 4 (or A* - C if received in 2017 or previous), which must include English and maths. If you also have an ICT qualification, this would be beneficial, but not compulsory.

There is a minimum age requirement for this role and therefore to be eligible you must be 18 by 1 September 2019.

This is a great three-year opportunity to experience, end-to-end, one of the most exciting supply chains in manufacturing. You’ll mix on the job work experience with valuable classroom learning. Though the Apprenticeship is based at York or Gatwick, you may be given the opportunity to broaden your experience by working at another of our many factory sites. You’ll have the chance to speak to customers and liaise with suppliers, as you forecast with factories. But you won’t be purely UK focused, as a global company you’ll work with other Nestlé countries and markets.

Join us and you’ll:

  • Become a level-three supply chain practitioner, with Nestlé’s continued support to help you further your career
  • Get to experience a wide variety of roles and responsibilities
  • Work collaboratively with some of our biggest customers and suppliers
  • Lead improvement projects to help us operate more efficiently, removing waste and reducing cost
  • Play a pivotal role in ensuring the supply of all our amazing products and brands
  • Help to develop well-rounded supply chain operators of the future
