Nestlé Graduate Development Programme 2017

The Nestlé Graduate Development Programme is an initiative that we invest in as it is a feeder into our business talent pipeline for various functional streams. Each year Nestlé South Africa welcomes graduates from around the country to our programme.

“The Nestlé world is a world of opportunity, where you can enhance the quality of life, for yourself, for your career and for the world."

Some graduates are driven by the head, others 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.

Nestlé is the world’s leading Nutrition, Health and Wellness company.

The opportunity
Whether you join us on our Technical & Production, Supply Chain, Sales, Finance, Human Resources, Corporate Communication & Public Affairs or any other function, you’ll get to the heart of one of our key business areas.

You will be given the opportunity to understand the core workings of the world’s leading Nutrition, Health and Wellness company. And as we’re a diverse business with a global mindset, you’ll see how we benefit from different cultures and new local perspectives.

You’ll discover that our entry level positions have some common characteristics. Individual responsibility and autonomy are facts of life here. So while you’ll benefit from best-in-class training, you’ll need the drive to make the most of our formal development, and on-the-job training.

The challenge
Excelling here means sharing our passion for enhancing lives; it means taking ownership of your future and remaining open to the unique learning opportunities that will come your way. We encourage our people to view their career as a journey.

There are ongoing opportunities here to step up, broaden your exposure or deepen your skills. Flexibility and the ability to take the long view are essential. But, rest assured, with over 2,000 leading brands and a passion for improvement, nothing stands still for long in Nestlé – least of all talented young professionals.

The Nestlé Graduate Development Programme (GDP) is a highly sought after programme that sees in excess of 6000 applications per year.  Graduates are taken through a 24-month rotational development programme that provides an introduction to the working world of Nestlé, as well as a strong foundation for further development.

Submissions for the 2018 Graduate Programme close on 08 September 2017.
