Nesternships are 'semi-virtual' paid internships where you work on real-life Nestlé projects from your own location. They will enable you to boost your digital skills, your entrepreneurial spirit, and your agility to deal with different situations. Nesternships are an add-on to regular Nestlé internships so you can also work in our offices when required.

Frederikke - HR student worker in the Nordics

I started as a coffee specialist in a Nespresso boutique in Copenhagen before starting as a student worker in the Nordic HR Team.

The 'Nestlé needs Youth' program is giving me so many new skills and so much new knowledge and in the future I am hoping to be able to make a difference to Nestlé in the same way Nestlé is making the difference to me.


Christopher - Student, PhD Training at the Nestlé Institute of Health Sciences, Switzerland

I study how intracellular and dietary metabolites influence mitochondria and cellular bioenergetics. The PhD program at the Nestlé Institute of Health Sciences is a unique experience that's broadened my horizons and perspective.

I'm learning from expert scientists working in state-of-the-art laboratories and gaining valuable insights from business professionals – to prepare me for the world of work.
