What can you expect?

Get ready for a two-year placement in the UK or maybe even overseas, working alongside some of the best engineering experts in any industry today. Get ready to build the skills that will see you emerging as a fully-fledged Nestlé Engineer at the end of it. Get ready to develop true intellectual property for engineering solutions. Choose from two equally fulfilling options: Nestlé Product Technology Centre (PTC) or Nestlé UK (NUK).

With Nestlé PTC you’ll develop the products of tomorrow, today. You’ll take a flexible approach, whether you’re working on product tech, nutrition or whichever exciting new project comes your way. You’ll be producing CAD drawings for important stakeholders and you’ll get to work with some seriously cutting-edge technologies, like simulation modelling, virtual reality and 3D printing. It’s a techie’s dream.

The Nestlé UK placement focuses more on the weird and wonderful machines we use to make our products. You’ll go on two placements in two years, one on product engineering, equipment design or installation, with the other focussing on maintenance. There’s all manner of team activities to take part in and you’ll have chance to throw your opinion into reviews with internal and external stakeholders.

You might also get the opportunity to travel the world to work with key stakeholders and real engineering experts. Mentored to the max. Coached to perfection. Chartership opportunities like you wouldn’t believe, as you work on our top three priority innovation projects. That’s right – top three!

Who are we looking for?

Our engineers are problem solvers who work relentlessly to keep our processes running like clockwork. Problem solvers, remedy makers, visionaries who can even see problems before they occur. Those are the skills we’re after in you.

To qualify, you’ll need a relevant degree. Whether it’s mechanical, chemical, automation, electrical, that’s alright. What really matters is how ready you are to get to work on your career. And how ready you are to learn what it takes to make the engineering decisions that will shape the future of our business.

An agile learner, team worker, resilient performer who’s proud of your work. The perfect package.

Please note that you can only make one application per annual recruitment intake, so do take time to consider what’s going to suit you best. You must have the right to work in the UK.
