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 Engineering 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?
This is a four-year UK wide programme which is split between college and workplace. The initial college period is twenty weeks where you will be residential at Storthes Hall just outside Huddersfield. This provides a great opportunity for you to build relationships with all your peers from around the country who are on the course too. We will cover all travel and accommodation costs, including meal allowances. This will help supplement your on the job work experience, learning about our electrical and mechanical technology and how it makes us the global market leader we are.
Your skills will grow to match the scale of our operations, as will your flexibility to turn your hand to new challenges and master new equipment. Not to mention ensuring that you cover all the basics in safety, quality and hygiene.
We’ve seen previous Apprentices go on to become highly successful Engineering Specialists, Maintenance Managers, Project Engineers and Engineering Managers, looking after large teams and responsible for multi-million pound budgets. To keep you on-track your starting salary will increase each year on successful completion of your training.
