Manufacturing Industrial Placement - Nationwide

This job has closed



If you’re heading into your final year of study, the skills and experience you’ll gain on our Manufacturing Industrial Placement can help you get off to a better start in your career after graduation. You’ll put your learning into practice and experience what it’s like to be a Manufacturing professional here at the largest food and beverage company in the world.

Our creativity as a business depends on bringing different people and personalities together so they can share ideas and come up with something brand new. That’s why we’ll always encourage you to be your whole self here. Whatever your background, you’re welcome to give it everything you’ve got at Nestlé.

Placements are running at Nestlé sites up and down the country. Wherever you join us, you’ll return to your final year of study with a new set of goals and the skills to achieve them.

What the Manufacturing Industrial Placement entails

Our placement is all about putting learning into practice and building on the foundations you’ve laid at university. Under the guidance and mentorship of our industry experts, you’ll take an active role in real-life projects and rotate through various roles to experience everything from shift and shop floor management, Total Productive Maintenance and DMAIC processes.

In the thick of the action every day, you’ll develop the core professional skills you’ll need to thrive at a global Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) business. Things like communication and collaboration. You’ll also learn how to develop and contribute your own ideas. While you’re with us, you’ll be invited to take part in decision-making so that, by the end of the programme, you’ve got the confidence you need to really make headway in your career.

Who is eligible for the Manufacturing Industrial Placement?

You’ll need to be in the second-to-last year of your degree (or year three for Scottish students). We’re not looking for particular subjects, universities or grades, though—what’s important here is that you’re 100% committed to the career path you’ve chosen and will put everything into learning as much as possible with us. If you’re full of energy, ideas and ambition, we’d love to meet you.

What will I get out of a Nestlé Manufacturing Industrial Placement?

You’ll emerge from the programme with a year’s experience with the company behind iconic brands like KitKat, Smarties, Felix and Lion Bar. With that behind you, you’ll already have significant standing as a manufacturing professional—before you’ve even graduated. What’s more, the relationships you’ll build here will give you a major advantage over your peers when it comes to getting the career you want.

Our ‘Force for Good’ initiative is another reason to feel great about working on placement with Nestlé. It’s all about Creating Shared Value (CSV), which means aligning commercial goals with important social responsibilities like healthier eating and helping the environment. By helping us develop more sustainable manufacturing processes, you’ll make a direct contribution to that. So it’s not just your career prospects you’ll improve by joining us here.
