Nestlé Academy Apprenticeships Open Evening

Nestlé Academy Apprenticeships Open Evening

Thu, 31 Jan 2019 18:00

The open evening is a great opportunity to understand what Apprentice opportunities Nestlé have at their Wisbech site. The evening will consist of talks from some of their current Apprentices and employees to disclose what it's really like to work there. An opportunity for their current Apprentices to showcase their roles and to offer advice on the application process!

Nestlé are offering specific rooms laid out for each apprenticeship scheme available and there will be a room for people to have some guidance on the application process.

The evening is being run by the current Nestlé Apprentices so in each room there will be an Apprentice who is on that specific scheme.

There will be lots of information on each scheme, handouts to take away and an opportunity to have one-on-one conversations with Apprentices and experienced employees such as Engineers.

They'll also have a representative from Lincoln University, Holbeach Campus – where they send their Manufacturing Apprentices, to help on that side as well.

To attend:

Please arrive on site via the car park entrance directly off Cromwell Road, signposted
"Welcome to Nestlé Purina Wisbech".

Head towards the revolving doors of Reception where you will be greeted by the receptionist who will book you onto the site.
