In Summary

Finance Graduate Scheme with The Nestlé Academy

Job Description

What can you expect?
Working in Finance for the world’s largest food and drink manufacturer – one with lots of big well-known brands, is an exciting place to be! The team are always involved in the conversation, so you’ll certainly never be bored. Over this three-year Graduate scheme, wherever you’re based (York or Gatwick), you’ll build up strong foundations across Finance as you move around different areas of the function, learning your trade. These might include a stint focusing on ‘Reporting’ – where you’ll learn all about interpreting data in a way that’s full of insight, or ‘Partnering the Business’ – where you’ll focus managing relationships and keeping customers sweet.

From here you can expect to work in a specific support area, including the likes of ‘Planning & Reporting’, ‘Overhead & Cost Allocation’, ‘Financial Services’ and more. 

Innovation matters at every level of our business. So, as a Finance Graduate, you’ll learn how to channel your innovative nature into seriously creative business solutions. That’s a real professional placement, working on real projects while being mentored by industry experts. Putting your knowledge into practice but still learning all the time. 

It’ll give you a practical understanding of our Finance department and an entry into a potentially lifelong Finance career that will only see you progressing and progressing, at least while you’re here at Nestlé.

About Us

Nestlé Academy has built its reputation as a continual innovator over a history of more than a century and a half.
So for an ambitious Finance Graduate, it really is the best of both worlds.
A safe, secure business with which to build a successful career but, also, the kind of employer that encourages you to try new ways of doing things.

That’s why we’re now looking for people who love exploring ideas. Does that sound like you?
For example, have you been weighing up which of the world’s biggest brands could get your career off to the best start, now that you’ve graduated or will be graduating soon?
That bold, impressive ability to look critically at your choices is just what we want to see from the next generation of Nestlé innovators.

Additional Information

Who are we looking for?
Finance affects every aspect of this company. So you’re going to need to be able to communicate well with people from right across it and at every level. If you’ve ever worked in customer service, you know the kind of thing we’re talking about. Friendly, professional and knowledgeable. 

This being Finance, you’ll obviously need a head for figures and plenty of confidence when it comes to processing and interpreting data. Not to mention 5 GCSEs or equivalent (actual or predicted) grades 9-4 (A*-C if taken before 2017) including English Language and Maths, a degree in a related subject (Finance, Mathematics, Accounting or similar) and the willingness to relocate to York or Gatwick. 

Ultimately, we want people who are really going to go for it and respond quickly to training on their way to a serious career as a Finance professional. Because that’s what’s on offer, here. You ready? 

Please note that you can only make one application per annual recruitment intake, so do take time to consider what’s going to suit you best. You must have the right to work in the UK.
