Information and support about the events displayed on YEP and their registration process.

Nestlé YEP's Catalogue gathers all innovation events, programs and opportunities at Nestlé in one place, so you can easily filter through and find the right one for you! You'll often see there webinars, trainings, challenges or hackathons, career fairs, networking events, or flagship programs such as the Nestlé R+D Accelerator.

Each event is different - some are open to a global audience, while others only to a specific location/region. Use the filters to browse through the events and check the most relevant ones!

Information about resume submissions in the YEP Talent Pool career feature.

The Talent Pool functions as a database for recruiters to filter through the resumes submitted and pick the best candidates. While you won't be able to find or apply to jobs through this feature, you can always check open positions on the Nestlé Careers page!

Our first tip is make sure you answer all questions in the submission form. Highlight your top skills and let your personality shine through! You'll also increase your chances by completing the YEP Academy Modules and attaching the Certificates to your resume. Recruiters are looking for entrepreneurial skills and innovation mindset - and the YEP Certificate proves that!

At the moment it's not possible to edit your profile after submitting it to the Talent Pool. We'll keep you informed as the feature evolves. If you have submitted some information that is detrimental to your profile, reach out to us at and we'll do our best to assist you!

The personal information and data your provided in your submission is stored in the Nestlé database for 2 years. Read more on this topic on Nestlé's Privacy Policy.

Information on career and job opportunities.

Open positions at Nestlé are usually displayed on the website, in the Careers tab. There you can filter by Keywords, Country/Region, or you can chat with the AI Recruiting Assistant to find the best opportunity for you! 

While we're really happy to see your interest in a Nestlé position, we unfortunately don't process any resumes or cover letters received in our inbox. We encourage you to browse through Nestlé's Careers page for open roles, or share your resume to the YEP Talent Pool for a chance to be scouted by Nestlé recruiters!
