Looking to gain a degree in food technology? Want to combine learning with earning and practical experience alongside academic studies? Our brand new Food Technologist Degree Apprenticeship programme launching in our Dalston factory could be perfect for you.

Food Technologists take great pride in their work and are passionate about using their skills to ensure products are safe to eat and share the consistent appearance, taste and texture which our consumers expect.

What can you expect?

The four-year apprenticeship is built around the new Level 6 Food Industry Technical Management Apprenticeship standard, which incorporates a BSc degree in Food Technology. The programme blends block-release university studies with real on-the-job work experience. You will learn all aspects of food technology in the factory then apply your learnings to enhance our quality systems in the factory. Ultimately you’ll have the satisfaction of being part of a great team playing a key role in ensuring our products meet the highest safety and quality standards.

Who are we looking for?  

We’re looking for ambitious candidates with a passion to learn and a genuine interest in developing a career in the food and drink industry. Our apprenticeship programmes are designed to help you build and grow certain strengths and qualities.

You should have or be predicted 2 A-level or equivalent qualifications including one science-related subject, plus 5 GCSEs at grades A*-C including Maths and English. Studying for a degree while holding down a job in a fast-moving business like ours can be demanding and challenging, but the rewards will be huge. That's why we're looking for high quality people with real potential who can match our commitment and ambition. In return, we’ll provide you with great support and a variety of benefits. Your starting salary will be £16,000 with the opportunity for annual increases providing you’ve successfully completed your training and met our Nestlé standards.

If you are successfully selected to attend our Assessment Centre, this will be held on Monday 8th May 2017.
