We post all our opportunities here on the Nestlé careers website. If you find a position that fits your interests and experience, this is where your journey starts. Create an account on our website and you’re good to get going.
2 - Share your credentials
Your CV or résumé is your chance to showcase your best professional self, and your suitability for the role you are applying for. As well as telling us that you have the experience and qualifications for the job, it should also explain your career history, why you made your choices and what you’ve achieved.
3 - Talk to a recruiter
If our recruitment team identifies you as a good match for the opportunity you have applied for, they will get in touch with you for a phone screening. This is a conversation designed to help us understand your interests, experience and motivation, and it is an opportunity for you to get a deeper understanding of the role you are applying for.
Hiring manager interview
4 - Meet a manager
The next stage is likely to be an interview, either online or face-to-face, with the manager who’s hiring for your role. Here, we’ll be looking to see how you fit with the department and the role. You’ll also have a chance to know more about Nestlé from the inside.
5 - Show us your skills and preferences
For some roles we use evaluations to get to know you better. These might assess your cognitive abilities, such as numeric or logical reasoning, or help us understand your learning preferences, natural strengths and aspirations. Depending on the role, you might also be asked to do a case study or practical test. The nature and timing of the evaluation will vary depending on the role you are applying to, and it will be clearly explained to you beforehand.
6 - Get to know the broader team
An invitation to this interview means you’ve been successful in all the stages so far. We bring together different stakeholders to make sure you’re the best fit for the role – you might meet the team you’ll be working with. It's a chance for you to get to know more people at Nestlé – and to be sure that we’re a good fit for you, too.
