It sounds simple, but it's a profound truth: our business can only grow if our people do. That's why continuing professional development will always play such a vital part in your Nestlé career.
We've developed lots of ways to ensure this happens in a fair and transparent way. First of all, we'll help you identify the best way for you to apply your talents, articulate your ambitions and develop your career through a series of year end appraisals and mid-year reviews of your performance and potential. After that, we'll work together to plan appropriate development actions and construct individually-tailored career and development plans that play to your unique strengths.
In addition to these strengths, our global Management Development Cycle provides us with the perfect way to review this activity across the business. Each of our functions will regularly review its people and build succession plans for our business critical roles. If we then think you've got what it takes to be one of our future business leaders, we won't hesitate in making that happen.
But most importantly, it's not all down to us. You'll find that the best thing about Nestlé is that we give you all the information and support you need to plan your own career path. Our advice might, for example, inspire you to broaden your horizons within your current role, business unit or location. Or you might decide you want to keep your current specialism and move laterally within the business from, say, Cereal Partners UK to Purina PetCare (UK & Ireland).
Of course, this being Nestlé, your career could also have a real international edge if you want it to, thanks to a broad selection of international projects, secondments and placements.
So, whether you're a graduate fresh from university or an experienced hire, you'll find that our commitment to accelerating success and building our team will equip you with the resources to create the career you've always dreamt of, within a climate of equal opportunity and transparency that's typical of our European roots. The only question now is, where do you want to go?
