Engineering career

We have an enormous number of projects for mechanical, chemical or industrial engineers, and for food technologists. Here are some of the areas where you could deepen your engineering or technical expertise – either locally or internationally.

Performance Acceleration Team

Our engineers are part of a large, diverse team that works with factories to help them improve their performance, develop their capabilities and share best practices. They work on worldwide projects from creation to implementation, and improve their leadership and technical skills at the same time.

Operations Strategies Unit

The unit focuses on high-impact projects in Industrial Strategies, Competitive Analysis and Value Creation Assessment. They directly support senior management by contributing to projects that span financial analysis and simulation, business and operations assessment, and technological deployment.

Innovation Acceleration Team

This team accelerates the multi-market deployment of key innovations and explores how complex R&D projects could become business opportunities. Project Leaders here have full responsibility for project performance, and for managing cross-functional teams and multiple stakeholders across various markets and product categories.

Nestlé Product Technology Centers

As the name suggests, our Nestlé Product Technology Centers (PTCs) provide technical development expertise for our product, manufacturing and packaging processes. Each PTC is aligned with a particular Nestlé business and provides expertise for designated product categories. As such, it becomes a global hub for that kind of product and process development. For instance, in Switzerland we provide worldwide technological know-how on coffee, beverages, cereals, dairy and nutritional products.

Nestlé Application Groups

Attached to individual Nestlé factories, our Application Groups make sure that our products reflect local tastes. They also work closely with the PTCs to test scientific applications. If you’re thinking about where best to continue your technical career, a Nestlé Application Group could be the answer. You’ll gain broad exposure to a range of categories, learning about everything from petcare with Purina, and coffee with Nespresso or Nescafé to chocolate with KitKat.
