At Nestlé, we know how valuable work experience can be in the first stages of developing a career, so we’re delighted to offer the opportunity for paid work experience placements.


We have a limited number of paid work experience placements available for those aged 14-19. Our Work Experience Week is held at our Gatwick and York sites. This is a fantastic opportunity to gain an insight into how we operate at Nestlé, develop some of your transferable strengths and help you to understand where your interests may lie for your future career.


In 2018 our Work Experience Week is Monday 20th to Friday 24th August 2018.


We want to make the process for joining Nestlé on a work experience placement as streamlined as possible.

The first step is for some of our Nestlé employees to visit your school or college, to run an employability session. At this session, all students involved will be invited to complete an application form for our work experience programme, if they are interested.

Applications will be reviewed, and as a result of this top performing students will be invited to one of our Insight Days. Here, students will be selected to join us for a week of paid work experience during the summer holidays.

If you are local to our Gatwick or York sites and are interested in our work experience opportunities, please ask your school or college to contact us here. Please be aware, that this inbox is monitored only for school and college event invitations: other queries will not be addressed through here.

Further Info

Due to the nature of our operations and for the safety for all those who may join us, at this time we cannot offer work experience at our other UK & Ireland sites. Additionally, as it’s important to us to offer meaningful opportunities, we cannot accommodate ad hoc work experience outside of the official week.

Please note that students who are successful in joining our Work Experience Week will need to arrange and fund their own travel to our office each day.

If you are a University student seeking an Internship or Placement, please find out more about these opportunities here.
