A tax career in Nestlé was very different than my initial expectation because the world is shifting to digitalization. I had the opportunity to be part of different tax innovation projects like machine learning, and robotic process automation. I never thought my role could play a big part at Nestlé.

What makes Nestlé a great company is the constant learning. It is a company that does not stand still, but seeks new challenges. The tremendous portfolio of products it handles and the weight it has worldwide in the food industry, makes the work entertaining and very dynamic; it forces you to break boundaries and grow professionally.

I started at Nestlé with an Engineering Graduate Program in 2016, before working as a Project engineer. I have worked for more than 16 projects so far! Nestlé has always believed in me and in my skillset, and my effort has always been recognized: Nestlé has decided to invest in my studies and, thanks to the company, I completed an Industrialization Project Management Course in Halifax.
