Nestle

Marketing – Tom

I joined Marketing to have an opportunity to create a positive impact

I look after one of the most loved products across the world, MILO. Whether it’s providing nourishing energy for active Aussies or simply making smiles, our brands have such a strong impact in our consumer’s lives. In my role, the research I do helps me understand our consumers’ motivations, innovate through packaging ideas and create new communication ideas.

 

Nestle

Technical & Production – Melissa

I love food and I love people – my position in Operational Performance gives me an opportunity to work with both of my loves! I studied Food Science & Human Nutrition and work in the factory on the line (on improvement activities) as well as with the operators (doing coaching and supporting). My days are never the same. I analyse data to understand patterns and trends, lead product waste reduction activities on the factory floor, and engage and motivate operators by making sure their needs are being met and working to create the kind of environment where they want to be involved.

 

Nestle

Supply Chain - Kieren

I studied Mechatronic Engineering and Commerce, and was looking to work in an area where I could apply aspects of both degrees. Supply Chain was the perfect fit, as it requires analysis from both a technical and a commercial perspective. I work on projects that enable our logistics operations to perform as efficiently as possible, and the scale and constant push for improvement at Nestlé means there are always new and interesting projects available to work on.

 

 

Nestle

Finance – Justelle

Numbers are what drives a business behind the scenes. As an accounting graduate, I joined Nestlé as it gave me the opportunity to view finance end to end; from when we make our products in our factories until they hit the shelves. During my time in the program, I was exposed to the breadth of the business . A career with Nestlé is what you make it.
