1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:

8/10

I am a confectionery apprentice and am learning all confectionery skills. I help out on new projects in the kitchen which may or may not make it out to the shops!

2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?

7/10

I have learnt so many skills that I wouldn't have been able to learn anywhere else! I am also being put through a foundation degree in food manufacture and have the option to continue onto a full degree once i've finished the former.

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?

8/10

Nestle is such a good company to work for. Everyone is so friendly and will help you in anyway they can! You quickly become part of the team and are made to feel very welcome. I have loved every minute of my time here.

4. How valued do you feel by Nestle?

6/10

Very valued, hard work is well appreciated and recognised!

5. How well organised/structured is your programme?

6/10

Seeing as I was the first confectionery apprentice they took on, things weren't as organised as they could have been. However everyone is learning as we go along and the support is amazing!

6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?

8/10

Whenever I have any queries or problems, anyone is happy to help out. Everyone is happy to be asked a question and will always do their best to answer it or if they can't will make sure they refer you to someone who can.

6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?

8/10

A lot! Any problems, in and outside, of work I can go and ask for help and I know I will always be given good advice.

7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?

9/10

Perfectly! My pay is quite a lot for an apprenticeship and I can comfortably afford my rent, food and a few treats!

8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?

5/10

Lots of opportunities to get involved with, you just have to look out for them!

9a. Would you recommend Nestle to a friend? *

Yes

9b. Why? *

A really lovely, friendly and genuine company to work for. They value their employees and do the best they can for everyone!

10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Nestle? *

The interview process is very different to any other I have been to. Instead of asking you for previous experiences in a certain situations they ask how you would respond in different situations. Come prepared with examples of where you've shown intuition but overall be happy, and friendly!
