Nestlé has said it will create 1,600 jobs for young people in the UK and Ireland over the next three years. It will also create 300 paid work experience placements. The job roles will include sales assistants, shop floor workers and management positions.
Nestlé boss Fiona Kendrick told the BBC: ‘We believe industry needs to step up and play its role in bringing youth unemployment down. Young people in the UK and Ireland are stuck in a Catch-22 situation – they can’t get a job without experience, but can’t get experience without a job.’ (BBC, 15th November 2013)
