As the function driving our brand-building efforts, marketing is at the heart of what we do. Indeed, “Brand Building the Nestlé Way” is a distinctive process that sets our marketing function apart in the industry – from both a commercial and career point of view.
Our marketing team provides an end-to-end service reflected in our three key areas: brand management, communications and consumer insight. Importantly, marketing is not an isolated activity here – our focus on the consumer ensures we provide seamless service, working hand-in-hand with our customer and sales teams.
The strength of our brand portfolio and the breadth of our brand activities makes our marketing team an excellent career option for both recent graduates and experienced marketing and brand professionals. As you’d expect, there’s a wealth of opportunity here. You could join us in any of our three key areas, and from there, your career could follow several routes. You could move into commercial or general management as many of our business, market and country heads have done, or you could follow a more specialist path.
Whichever direction you take, you’ll need to share our commitment to the consumer and our belief in enhancing lives with everything we do. With strong marketing credentials, ideally gained in a fast-moving consumer goods environment, you’ll have shown you relish solving commercial challenges with marketing practices. Strong communication and analytical skills are key in this area, as is the ability to influence others and collaborate with teams and individuals. The people who excel in marketing at Nestlé are open-minded, they meet objectives effectively and responsibly and they execute flawlessly.
