CPUK Supply Chain Graduate
- Salary: £30,000
Two-Year Supply Chain Graduate Scheme with The Nestlé Academy, working within Cereal Partners UK - Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire, AL1 7RR.
What can you expect?
Supply Chain at Cereal Partners is a very wide ranging area, made up of lots of different teams, all involved at the start of a product’s life. From finding the ingredients through to getting the product into the hands of our customers and consumers, think whole grain to Shredded Wheat.
Keeping the conversation flowing between all the different parts of Cereal Partners, our suppliers and our customers, you’ll be problem-solving on-the-fly, thinking logically and putting those serious people skills of yours to use. Turning your specialist insight into solid plans, your dedication will help ensure our famous products reach the hands of consumers across the world.
Your training will see you hitting all the different parts of the company and all the different processes – it could see you helping source the best raw materials to organising the delivery of cereals to customers – so you get a full understanding of how it all works together. And you’ll put into practice everything you learn.
You’ll be based at Cereal Partners, Hertfordshire, with the potential for placements at our factory sites in Bromborough and Staverton, so you can experience factory supply chain first-hand. Getting involved in real projects across different areas of the business, you’ll talk to our customers and look at sales forecasting, all with a focus on sustainability, recycling and cost-effectiveness. It’ll be a packed couple of years made up of a variety of placements (6 to 12 months in length), but you’ll come away bursting with specialist know-how, learned from experienced professionals.
And there’s huge potential. Supply Chain covers roles like Logistics (which is Transport and Warehousing), Procurement (sourcing everything from recycled plastic to milk) and Demand Planning (figuring out how much we’re going to sell). The scope is massive.
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 Supply Chain 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.
Who are we looking for?
People who think things through, who see problems before they occur and, if they do, can take steps to remedy them quickly. This role is about challenging the norm – seeing the way we do things and daring to find a better way.
We want people who’ll take a front seat in the decision-making process. After all, you’ll be shaping the future of Cereal Partners, driving our sustainability agenda. So if you’re just out of uni with a decent degree and are champing at the bit to put your big ideas into action, let’s chat. We think we might have a lot in common.
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.
