I'm currently in my sales placement. On a day to day, I run sales reports and am currently working on two projects. One is a e-commerce project and another is a audit review of convenience stores. I go into stores and do some store analysis, use data to analyse and create reasoning's and also make recommendations for improvements in these areas
I have learnt lots of new skills and developed existing ones. For example, my communication, time management and team work skills have improved since working in a wider team. My excel and data analysis skills have been new skills ive learnt. I've also learnt how to use nestle specific softwares and terminology.
I enjoy the programme as I am constantly learning and have the opportunity to grow and develop my skills. Through rotating placements, I am developing a well-rounded solid foundation of business and nestle specific knowledge, as well a learning about myself and my personal development. I have networked and met some great people through the programme and so many people are there to support and aid my development.
We had a throrough induction to Nestle, even before our start date. We had the chance to get to know other apprentices and learn about Nestle which helped a smooth induction into the business. The scheme is organised as we find out our next placements in plenty of time and who our new line manager will be; our study weeks are also well organised and coincide with our roles.
There is dedicated people that are committed to aiding our development and give any support we may need. There has been wellbeing courses that we have gone on and we got assigned a buddy and mentor as soon as we joined the business. If ever there is a problem we know who to go too and they will sort our problems out with ease.
I have a dedicated day within the working week that i can use to work towards my qualifications and my line manager always takes into consideration my university work. They make sure we have enough 20% off the job training to record and that we are developing skills that we can showcase in our assignments or presentations.
What i learn in university weeks helps a lot in my day to day role; it allows us to gain knowledge from other apprentices and businesses and allows us tp put our knowledge into theories. It gives us the chance to learn more broadly about business and then we can apply that specifically into our roles.
There are team social events, apprentice events and networking that we can get involved with. There is also an onsite gym that we can use and do fitness classes in with our colleagues. There are lots of different societies we can get involved with eg. being a mental health aider.
Nestle really prides them self in creating a positive and inclusive culture for all. The academy ensures all new apprentices and graduates have a smooth transition into the company and receive all support needed. There are endless opportunities for growth and expanding skills and everyone is always so open and happy to help and improve our knowledge.
I would say to be yourself. Nestle wants to get to get to know the authentic you! Try and build up your social and presentation skills and have example of extra-curricular activities you have done to have evidence of your skills. Research Nestle and know the aims and ambitions and show that you have passion for learning and working in a business.
