Promoting youth employment and employability
Roll out our Nestlé needs YOUth initiative across all our operations
Providing opportunities for young people globally
Youth unemployment is a serious global issue, affecting millions of young people and contributing to global poverty. As a major employer, we recognise that we can make a positive difference by providing employment opportunities and skills development.
We offer apprenticeships, training schemes and initiatives to equip young people with the skills required for the workplace. Through these schemes we want to play a significant role in tackling youth unemployment.
