In order to meet demand for a 24 hr operation and deliver against tough supply chain and customer service targets, our engineers strive to ensure our assets operate with the high efficiencies we expect whilst ensuring safety and food quality. And of course we never stand still in a continually evolving and competitive market, so you could be involved in one of the many projects such as commissioning a new state-of-the-art production line or participating as part of an improvement team to develop new processes or technologies. You'll then have the satisfaction of seeing the fruits of your labour in shops and supermarkets, on posters and TVs, and in the hands (and mouths) of millions around the world.
Joining Nestlé as an engineer, you will need proven experience and be able to demonstrate a broad range of skills from people management to problem solving - and have a dynamic and hands-on approach.
For you, this will mean the opportunity to develop your career within a broad selection of routes to become an engineering manager or specialist of the future within the Nestlé business.
As an Asset Maintenance Manager you will lead a team of multi-skilled technicians and take charge of determining and continually improving the maintenance strategy for the department, ensuring the optimum use of maintenance techniques to achieve maximum plant availability, efficiency and flexibility. Or, as a Lead Technician, you could provide the proactive technical support and reactive maintenance that will enable the Shift and Asset Maintenance Managers to keep everything running smoothly and efficiently.
As an Infrastructure Engineering Manager you will focus on ensuring the provision and efficiency of utilities such as steam, air, electricity and refrigeration to the manufacturing processes. You will also have responsibility for ensuring compliance with legislation and corporate sustainability policies.
Then again, why not join us as a Project Engineer and take responsibility for the conception, construction and commissioning of new production lines, utilities, buildings and factories, as well as the modernisation of existing units?
Alternatively, if you have proven expert competence then you could join us as an Engineering Specialist, providing expertise in filling, packaging, refrigeration or automation; or in food processes such as extraction and drying.
You will need to possess relevant engineering qualifications appropriate to the role, and ideally will have experience within food manufacturing. For the factory-based roles, you should possess strong people management and influencing skills, as you will be responsible for coaching and training others in Engineering, and possibly managing a team of technicians.
In return, you'll benefit from joining a truly international company, in which Engineering is considered to be one of the cornerstones of the organisation, and where internal progression isn't just possible, it's actively encouraged, not only in the UK but potentially overseas.
