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 Supply Chain 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.
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 3 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

If you want to really have an impact on the working world, this is the programme for you.
