Nestle Information Session

Date: Friday 9 May
Time: 12–1pm
Venue: Room 514/516, Level 5 Jane Foss Russell Building
Register for this event

Some graduates are driven by the head – by a need to analyse; others are driven by the heart – by a passion to make an impact on the world and shape a business. At Nestlé, you’ll have the chance to grow in both these senses – to develop professionally and personally; intellectually and emotionally.

Whether you join us in your first position out of university, embark on our Commercial Graduate Program in Nestlé Australia, or our Graduate Program in Nestlé Pacific Islands, the minute you arrive, you’ll begin to understand the core workings of the world’s leading Nutrition, Health and Wellness company.

Because we’re a diverse business with a global mindset, the impact you have locally has the potential to be felt regionally or internationally; the ideas that you bring to life today are important in shaping our future.

We encourage our people to view their career as a journey. There are ongoing opportunities here to step up, broaden your exposure or expand your skills. Flexibility and the ability to take the long view are essential.

Our intakes for our development programmes are usually in August – October each year.
