You know Nestlé. But you may not know about the delicious range of opportunities we offer across our business. Welcome to the Nestlé Academy.

We’re proud of our amazing range of globally recognised brands, including Nescafé, Buxton, Felix, Fruit Pastilles and everyone’s favourite, Quality Street. And the variety of projects and work we deliver at Nestlé are just as diverse, meaning everyone that joins us has every opportunity to develop skills and gain real experience in a company that’s leading the way.

We thrive on the energy new talent brings us, and look to inspire and educate every single person that joins us through the Academy. Nestlé continuously look to develop talented, ‘home grown’ people who understand our business values and vision, as well as our commercial ambitions. And wherever you join us, you’ll discover a community of hard-working, forward-thinking and fun individuals, all committed to sharing knowledge and developing together.

Our worldwide strategy is to act globally and think locally, so you’ll be encouraged to think for yourself and make your own decisions. Show us you have what it takes and you’ll discover opportunities around almost every corner. From helping you to identify your strengths, to giving you all the support you need to plan your personal and professional growth, we’ll help you focus on your development.

If you’ve got it, you’ll grow it with Nestlé.
