  • 3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
  • I enjoy it a lot as it keeps me busy and everyone is really supportive when i need them. I really enjoy how the uni weeks are set out, as it gives us some time off from our work duties to focus on the uni work which is really important.

  • 4. How well organised/structured is your programme?
  • Very organized, we have set weeks that we have off to focus on the university work, and we rotate every year to new roles which is great so we can experience different parts of the supply chain. We also have monthly check ins with our mentors to make sure we are ok and if we are struggling with anything

  • 6. How much support do you receive from your training provider when working towards your qualifications?
  • I receive a lot of support from the university and they say we can email them anytime regarding the work or even if we feel we are struggling with the work load they are really supportive and give you that extra time you need or will talk with your mentor to see if there is a way we can take the work load of a bit if you are struggling

  • 7. How well do you feel that your qualification (through your training provider) helps you to perform better in your role?
  • the qualification really relates to the role i am in, which when i have to give examples in my work it makes it easier to explain and relate to the question, which therefore makes my work better. The units also help me understand what is needed from me in order to succeed in the role.

  • Due to covid there hasnt been many on, but we do have virtual things that go on, the other month we were taught how to make origami, learnt how to bake cakes make pesto. We currently have a step challenge, to see who is getting the most steps in the week.

  • 9a. Would you recommend Nestle to a friend?
  • Yes


  • 9b. Why?
  • Nestle is a huge company known worldwide, i first thought it would be a big team, and would kind of got forgotten about, but that is not the case at all, you get treated the same as any other employee and you are not single out. Everyone is so welcoming and friendly and it has been such a nice environment to work in.


  • 10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Nestle?
  • i would say apply for it! be yourself throughout the process and do your research into Nestle and the tasks that they set for you. i would recommend applying as soon as you see it as i they sometimes take down the application if they have received a large amount. Dont be put off because its a big company, because once your here its great and everyone is so friendly
