The Nestlé YOUth Influencer Programme is an ambassadorship programme where you - a university student, get to be a Nestlé ambassador for your university! As a YOUth Influencer, you’ll be creating hype, leading Nestlé related events on campus and much more. At the end of your role, you’ll also have the opportunity to explore a life at Nestlé.

For young people looking to start a career

Nestlé needs YOUth equips young people with the skills they need to thrive in tomorrow’s workplaces. Focusing on employment/employability, entrepreneurship and agripreneurship, it has a range of initiatives, for example:



With the pandemic causing internship programs to be cancelled, many young talents across the globe were confined to their homes with limited opportunities to upskill themselves. Due to this, Nestlé introduced the first regional (mainly virtual) internship program- Nesternship. As a Nestern, you have the chance to level up your skills, gain on-the-job experience and expand your network, all from the comfort of your home.


Nestlé Management Trainee Program

Nestlé Management Trainee Program is an accelerated management programme that is aimed to develop high potential individuals as future leaders. Fresh graduates will have real immersive learning experience to equip them with a holistic view of the business as well as the interrelationships between different functions across the value chain.

Trainee Program

A tax career in Nestlé was very different than my initial expectation because the world is shifting to digitalization. I had the opportunity to be part of different tax innovation projects like machine learning, and robotic process automation. I never thought my role could play a big part at Nestlé.

What makes Nestlé a great company is the constant learning. It is a company that does not stand still, but seeks new challenges. The tremendous portfolio of products it handles and the weight it has worldwide in the food industry, makes the work entertaining and very dynamic; it forces you to break boundaries and grow professionally.

I started at Nestlé with an Engineering Graduate Program in 2016, before working as a Project engineer. I have worked for more than 16 projects so far! Nestlé has always believed in me and in my skillset, and my effort has always been recognized: Nestlé has decided to invest in my studies and, thanks to the company, I completed an Industrialization Project Management Course in Halifax.
