You probably think you already know what Nestlé does. We're the people who liven up your coffee break with a Nescafé and a Kit Kat. But did you know that we're also the people who bring you Shredded Wheat, Buxton Mineral Water, Rowntree's Fruit Pastilles, After-Eights and Felix and Bakers pet food? Or that our research is pushing back the boundaries of health and nutrition around the world?
That's the thing about Nestlé: there's always something new to learn. It might be the story of our founder, Henri Nestlé, whose research into child nutrition laid the foundation for more than 140 years of commitment to good food and healthy living. Or it might be the story of how, despite being the world's leading nutrition, health and wellness company, your career with us will always have a local emphasis as well as global reach.
And all of that really is just the tip of the iceberg. There's still so much to learn.
Working at Nestlé:
Joining Nestlé means joining a global business and benefiting from a global outlook which has been handed down from generation to generation since our founding in Switzerland in the nineteenth century.
But what will this mean for you?
Well, first and foremost, it will mean “thinking globally, acting locally”. That’s our phrase for how we combine a global business culture with a sustainable commitment to local business knowledge. As with so many other things, it dates all the way back to our founding, when we were one of the first businesses to create factories at the point of origin of our materials, enabling local specialists to call on their knowledge in order to get the best price and the best quality. Today, it means you’ll be joining a business which combines the freedom to implement locally relevant plans with the opportunity to call on the global expertise and wider support structure of the world’s leading nutrition, health and wellness company.
We also have a real commitment to internal mobility, inspired by a deep understanding of our own complexity as a business. We believe a business this complex can only grow if its people understand and reflect that diversity. So, we’ll make sure that you are always given the freedom to move around. That might be within your own job or business area – or it might equally be moving laterally across from, say, Purina PRO PLAN to Perrier.
The other great advantage of our global outlook is the effect it’s had on the atmosphere we work in. We believe in collaboration and mutual respect, and this has resulted in us creating a culture of brilliant people pulling together to create brilliant teams.
