Nestlé has pledged to further strengthen its commitment to the employability of young people in Europe, the Middle East and North Africa. Focusing on creating first job experiences, Nestlé is seeking to help more young people out of school and into work. This includes apprenticeships as a key success factor to bridge the gap between school and the workplace.

Nestlé will offer 15,000 apprenticeships and traineeships as part of an overall commitment to offer 35,000 work opportunities for young people in Europe, the Middle East and North Africa by 2020.

Luis Cantarell, Nestlé Head of Zone Europe, Middle East and North Africa, says: “At Nestlé we are convinced that by preparing young people for the job market we can help them to build a brighter future. We believe we have a responsibility to help young people to gain the vital skills and experience that they need to succeed in their careers. Opportunities such as apprenticeships provide a fantastic first step on the employment ladder.”

In order to create an even bigger societal impact, Nestlé founded the Alliance for YOUth in 2014 with more than 200 companies participating. The Alliance has today announced that it will offer 230,000 new work opportunities for young Europeans between 2017 and 2020. It has already provided training and jobs for 115,000 young Europeans since 2014.

The commitment by Nestlé is part of its Global Youth Initiative to help young people across the world develop skills and become more employable. The company has already offered 32,000 opportunities in Europe, exceeding its initial target of 20,000 in the region.
