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 Operations Degree 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? For example, have you been wondering whether to go to university or start a career instead? Did you know you could even get a BA (Hons) in Professional Practice in Management at the same time, and all within three and a half years? 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 an outstanding entry into operations within one of the world’s biggest food and drink manufacturers. There are four main streams to this Degree Apprenticeship. Improvement Pillar/Total Productive Maintenance activities, campus team events, learning each of the manufacturing, line process at your site and university studies. When you first start the scheme, you’ll learn all the various processes and operations within the manufacturing site that you’re located in.
Join us and you’ll:

Learn the whole manufacturing process from end to end on your site so that you can work closely with operators and process specialists

Who are we looking for?
If you’re looking for an entry into operations within one of the world’s biggest food and drink manufacturers, they don’t come better than this.
