Dorothée, Accountant, Waters
I work as a Commercial Accountant at Nestlé Waters. My job is to plan forecasts in coordination with both the Sales and the Supply Chain Departments, co-piloting the development of our customers' portfolio, driving our brands' profitability and making sure that all employees understand the importance of the key financials that we need in place to grow our business.
During my studies I wanted to start my career in a large, well-known and dynamic company that offered a wide range of opportunities at an international level. Nestlé Waters was a perfect match!
First off I worked at the Nestlé Waters Headquarters in Paris in the Mergers & Acquisitions Department. This experience was fantastic, enabling me to get to grips with the size of Nestlé Waters' and its worldwide status as the leader of its industry with over 100 brands. That was amazing!
Then I had the chance to work in the Financial Department of Zone Asia-Oceania, where I assisted the Controller of the Zone in planning, reporting and decision making processes. It was really enriching to work with an international financial team. I learnt a lot from other people, all of whom had a wide range of professional experiences. I also realized the added value offered by a Controller in such a big company.
At the end of my studies I was really pleased to be offered a job as a Financial Analyst of Zone Europe. Good communication skills and pro-activity were key elements to success in that position. Then, after two years, I took advantage of Nestlé's unbeatable career progression to go abroad and develop my international career path in the UK.
What I like the most about Nestlé Waters is both the values of the company and its people. I am proud to belong to the Healthy Hydration Company of the Nestlé Group. We offer our customers the healthiest beverage in the market which can't be bad, can it? Moreover, Nestlé Waters believes in investing in their staff. You only have to prove you are worth it.easy!
I also cherish the spirit of our people. We come from all around the world. We have different backgrounds, competencies and objectives. But we all have the same core motivation - which is to improve and grow our business. It feels really good to be part of the Nestlé Waters family!
