How often are new positions advertised on the site?
New vacancies are advertised on the site as soon as they become vacant. It is worth visiting the website regularly to make sure that you don’t miss out on any new opportunities.
Can I apply by post?
We ask that all applications are submitted on-line. This is the best chance for you to be considered for any actual and up-coming positions.
How will I benefit by registering my details?
By registering with us, you’ll be able to apply for vacancies without having to enter your details each time. You’ll also be able to maintain and update your details whenever you want, and save previous searches so you can access them quickly. The Recruitment team also searches the database regularly for suitable candidates for permanent and temporary positions.
How long will it take me to register or apply for a job?
The registration process should take no longer than 10 minutes to complete. The more information you provide the easier it will be to match your details to suitable vacancies, so please take the time to ensure it is as accurate and full as possible. If you’re applying for a job, set aside around 25 minutes. This will allow you to attach up to 3 documents (example certificates) and answer specific questions about the vacancy.
Who has access to my data once I’ve registered?
Your details will only be seen by Nestlé recruiters and the line manager responsible for the specific vacancy you have applied for.
How do I know that you have received my application?
As soon as your details are registered, you will receive an automated on-line acknowledgment.
I have applied online, when will I hear from you?
All candidates will receive a system generated email confirming receipt of their application. Once you have applied for a position, your information will be available in our Applicant Tracking System. Recruiters will review your resume and assess against the requirements of the position, for which you applied. You will be contacted directly, if there is further interest in your candidacy. Due to the high volume of candidates we receive, we will not be able to personally call candidates who are not selected to continue in the recruiting process.
The email you sent doesn’t appear correctly in my e-mail account. What can I do?
Because different email providers use different screen widths, the information we send you may look odd, as though it has not been correctly formatted. If this is the case, we suggest changing the settings in your email account – see below for Hotmail and Yahoo! instructions. Hotmail – Select Options, Mail Display Settings and change line width to 132 Yahoo – Mail Options, General Preferences, change Screen Width to 99
