One in eight people under 25 in Peru, Chile, Colombia and Mexico does not have a job. It is a challenge that governments and business must address together. Nestlé will create around 2,800 jobs and 2,300 apprenticeships and traineeships under its Nestlé Needs YOUthinitiative in the four Pacific Alliance nations by the end of 2018.

Nestlé will also provide readiness-for-work training for more than 407,000 young people over the same period.

“At Nestlé, we need all kinds of skills. We have 335,000 employees and over 430 factories in 85 countries. We need brand managers, engineers, packers, researchers, digital experts,” says Nestlé’s Head of Zone Americas, Laurent Freixe. “We firmly believe we can make a significant contribution towards addressing the social cost of youth unemployment.”

Through its global Nestlé Needs YOUth initiative, Nestlé aims to attract young talent and tackle youth unemployment. The programme was launched across Europe in 2013, and extended globally in 2015.
