Job Description

What can you expect?
Working in Finance for a company that produces some of the world’s best loved breakfast cereals is an exciting place to be! The team are always involved in the conversation, so you’ll certainly never be bored. Based at Welwyn Garden City in Hertfordshire, you’ll build up strong foundations across Finance as you move around different areas of the function, learning your trade. Plus, you’ll get to work with international stakeholders through our Shared Service Centres and Global Head Office.

Over this three-year Graduate scheme, you’ll be given a whole host of responsibilities, from performing analytics to drive value within Profit and Loss, to preparing management reports to help inform decision making. You’ll learn how to balance the numbers, as well as how to forecast and undertake variance analysis – where you’ll learn how we predict anticipated sales, overheads etc. and then review any movement from those figures. 

Innovation matters at every level of our business. So, as a Finance Graduate, you’ll be an agile learner, who can 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 and taking great pride in what you do. 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.

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).

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.
