Career Progression

Let's hear about the career journey of one of our graduates after they completed our programme.


“The Finance Apprenticeship scheme was key to me securing a permanent role at Nestlé. Through rotating around various roles, I gained a breadth of knowledge and a wealth of experience to allow me to succeed. Being surrounded by like-minded and ambitious people has empowered me to thrive in the workplace and gain skills, make connections and learn about areas I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to otherwise.”

“Nestlé is an amazing company with such a friendly environment where you will feel welcomed as soon as you walk through the door. There is no place that will help you to be the best version of yourself and give you endless opportunities like Nestlé does.”
