The Nestlé Academy:
Nestlé recognize that the employability of young people today represents a real challenge not only for society, but also for the economy, which is why across Europe we launched the Nestlé Needs Youth Initiative. Our business thrives on the energy and ideas which new young talent brings to us and so here in the UK, the Nestlé Academy looks to inspire, educate and engage those thinking about or just starting out on their careers. Since 2013 we have created 2,051 employment opportunities for young people.
