Position Summary

 

Looking to gain a degree in food technology? Want to combine achieving a high level of education with practical on-site experience? Our Food Technologist Degree Apprenticeship programme could be perfect for you. You may have already begun your practical experience but seeking your academic qualifications or you may be starting your career and wanting to explore Food Technology, this opportunity is designed for all. 

 

Food Technologists take great pride in their work and are passionate about using their skills to ensure products are safe to eat and share the consistent appearance, taste and texture which our consumers expect.

 

All Nestlé factories are responsible for producing goods, which meet the exceptional standards of food safety, hygiene and quality, which are the hallmark of every Nestlé product.  That is where the Nestlé quality team comes in.  We are the champions of quality across all Nestlé businesses in the UK.  Our job is to ensure that our products always meet the expectations of our consumers and to provide our colleagues in Production & Technical with the best practice Quality Assurance that will make this possible.


Nestlé UK & Ireland is a subsidiary of Nestlé SA, the world’s largest food and beverage company. Nestlé's purpose is enhancing quality of life and contributing to a healthier future. We want to help shape a better and healthier world. We also want to inspire people to live healthier lives. This is how we contribute to society while ensuring the long-term success of our company.

 

We have more than 2000 brands worldwide, from global icons to local favourites, and here in the UK and Ireland we are major player within the food industry. However, at Nestlé it’s not just our big brands that matter…………………..….it’s our people. In the UK and Ireland, across numerous sites, we employ over 8000 people.  

A day in the life of Quality Management Professional

 

The four-year apprenticeship is built around the Level 6 Food Industry Technical Management Apprenticeship standard, which incorporates a BSc degree in Food Technology. 

 

The programme blends block-release university studies with real on-the-job work experience. You will learn all aspects of food technology in the factory then apply your learnings to enhance our quality systems in the factory. Ultimately, you’ll have the satisfaction of being part of a great team playing a key role in ensuring our products meet the highest safety and quality standards.

What will make you successful

 

Our Apprenticeship programmes are designed to help you build and grow certain strengths and qualities. We’re looking for ambitious candidates with a passion to learn and a genuine interest in developing a career in the food and drink industry. 

 

You should have or be predicted 2 A-level or equivalent qualifications including one science-related subject, plus 5 GCSEs at grades A*-C including Math’s and English. 

What you need to know

 

Great benefits you’d expect from a business the size of Nestlé – Studying for a degree while holding down a job in a fast-moving business like ours can be demanding and challenging, but the rewards will be huge. That's why we're looking for high quality people with real potential who can match our commitment and ambition. 

 

In return, we’ll provide you with great support and a variety of benefits. Your starting salary will be offered at the start of the apprenticeship with the opportunity for annual increases providing you’ve successfully completed your training and met our Nestlé standards. 

 

The closing date for this role is 31st august 2022

 

We will be considering candidates as they apply and we will occasionally close job advertisements early in the event we receive sufficient applicants, so please don’t delay in submitting your application.


At Nestlé, our values are rooted in respect – for our employees, our customers and our consumers.  That’s why championing diversity and inclusion is so important to us; when we embrace different perspectives and give everyone the chance to be the best they can be, we can think in new, creative ways that grow and enhance our business. We are committed to equal opportunity for all and we may collect relevant data for monitoring purposes during our candidate registration process.  Be yourself, everyone else is taken!

 

Right to work in the UK 

 

In accordance with Home Office guidance successful candidates will be required to evidence their right to work in the UK before commencement of employment.  We have assessed this role and do not consider that we would be able to sponsor a successful candidate under the Skilled Worker route as the role does not meet the relevant Home Office criteria; the successful candidate therefore must be able to demonstrate their own right to work during the recruitment process without Nestlé sponsorship.
