NextGen F.A.Q


Applications open in June each year. You can also register on our careers page and receive updates when we post new jobs. 

To be eligible, you should be in your final year of university or have completed your studies within two years of starting the NextGen Nestlé Program. You'll also need either permanent residency or citizenship.​

The program starts in January each year.

Our assessments centers will be completely virtual and managed via video-conferencing tool MS Teams. If you are invited to the assessment center we will send all the information you need via email, with links to the appropriate virtual meetings. You’ll experience both group and 1-1 sessions where you will meet Nestle employees and other candidates. 

  • For the information session, be sure to come along with any questions you might have, and actively participate in discussions.  ​

  • The interview will include a review of your studies and any work experience to date, and some behavioural based questions. ​

  • For the case study you will receive information on the day and be given time to prepare a brief presentation. ​

  • For all sessions, make sure you have a quiet space where you won’t be distracted. 

Assessment centre dates are fixed and unfortunately, cannot be changed.

We consider this on a case-by-case basis depending on our business needs.

Our graduate program is a two-year rotation program, and at the end of the 2 years you will have an ongoing permanent job with Nestle.

For all streams, positions will be located in various locations across New Zealand. Should you be successful we will discuss relocation destinations with you. If you are required to relocate, we will provide financial assistance.​
