Applying for a new job is a big step – and we’ve got your back. Here are some tips for applying – and some of the questions we’re most often asked about our job offers and application process.
How to apply?
Visit the Nestlé Waters site in the country you want to work in and take a look at the list of available job openings. Pick a vacancy that matches your skills, interests, education and experience. Take time to complete your application, making sure you tell us everything we should know about you: your skills, professional experience, training and anything else you think we ought to know so you stand out from the crowd, and we want to find out more about you.
What happens next?
Our recruiters will look at your application carefully and fairly. If we decide to take your application to the next stage we’ll be in touch to organize an interview, whether in person, by phone or via videoconference. If we think you might be right for another role, we’ll also get in touch to talk things through.
How do I know you’ve received my application?
We’ll send you an email acknowledgement that we have received your application. There’s no need for you to do anything else. If we want to pursue your application we’ll be in touch in due course.
How do I know if I have an interview?
We will contact you by phone or email to invite you for interview or ask you to complete a further stage of your application. Please do not phone us to ask about your application as we will be unable to give you any further information.
How long does the recruitment process take?
Each job is different, but the time taken to fill a vacancy can depend on a lot of factors, from the number of applicants to the availability of interviewers. It can sometimes take several weeks, so please don’t panic if you don’t hear from us straight away.
What happens at an interview?
You’ll meet with a team of people, both from our HR team and from the teams you’re applying to join. Depending on the role you’re applying for, you might be asked to take individual or group tests. Don’t worry – we see interviews as a chance for people to shine. So be relaxed, be positive and show us what you can do.
If you’re successful and we want you to work with us we’ll send you a formal offer of employment and ask you to come and sign a contract. Welcome to the team!
What training can I expect when I start work?
Once you’ve met your new colleagues, been shown round your new workplace and learned more about your day to day responsibilities, your manager will be responsible for your induction, professional development, training and assessment.
“I was really nervous when I found out I had been invited for an interview. But the whole process was really friendly and positive, and I was thrilled when they offered me the position. Now I’m interviewing people myself, and I try to be as welcoming to them as my manager was to me.”
