Recruitment Process


Our People

Nestlé people are honest, creative, open/transparent and proactive and result oriented. We work together in a culture of support and mutual benefit that encompasses every one of our customers, consumers and community members. The Nestlé family wishes to change the world and make a difference, as well as gaining the critical commercial advantage.

At Nestlé, we value teamwork and unity, which along with the talents of the individuals make us all winners. We're also known for hiring people with real talents, the type that translates to achievement of tangible results.


Nestlé is the world's largest food and beverage company. We aim to be more than that. Our goal is to be the leading Nutrition, Health & Wellness Company in the Equatorial African Region. To achieve this, we must strive to give our brands a competitive advantage by making them nutritionally superior to the competitors’ products.

The goal can be achieved through constantly challenging the status quo and venturing into new ideas. We believe in the potential of our people and in the power of teamwork, passion and a total alignment with our overall vision.


Recruitment within the Equatorial African Region is made through established procedures on manpower planning.

This should attract personnel of high calibre and of the required potential necessary to achieve present and future objectives.

It is the Company’s Policy to:

  1. Strive to achieve a balanced staff, reflecting the overall composition of the community in which it operates and apply non-discriminatory practices.
  2. Stimulate equality of opportunity by the use of fair procedures and practices.
  3. Ensure that Nestlé Employees are always above suspicion of favouritism and nepotism. Fairness and impartiality should be placed before anything else and merit should be the only basis of employment.

The quality of our recruitment contributes to the quality of the Company since the new resources will be the drivers of the growth of Nestlé.

The Company believes in flat and flexible structures. Flat structures provide a wider scope for jobs, which facilitate employee motivation, enhance effective communication and learning opportunities and at the same time reduce hierarchical reporting layers, resulting in speed and efficiency in business operations.

The Company’s policy with respect to recruitment is to hire individuals through a process that is professional and consistent; one that reflects the Company’s commitment to the principles of hiring the best possible candidates and ensuring employment equity.  This is achieved through Competency Based Interviewing which is aligned to our Company’s Leadership Framework.

The potential for professional development is an essential standard for recruitment. Special attention will be paid to the match between the candidates’ personal attitudes and the Company’s culture and values as well as their willingness to adhere to the Nestlé Corporate Group-wide Policies and Guidelines.

All applicants to be considered for employment with the Company will be required to possess educational and professional qualifications, experience and ability appropriate for the vacancy to be filled. The Company may, in addition, require applicants to undergo practical/aptitude tests and/or examinations and interviews. Our recruitment and selection decisions are fair and objective.


Selection is made on the basis of merit in view of the job requirements and on a salary which is competitive and in line with the compensation structure of the Company.

Any person employed by the Company must have completed the Nestlé Equatorial African Region Employment Application Form, which can be obtained from the HR department in your local Nestlé Office.

The candidate is required to provide certain information to the Company beforehand. This includes proof of identity, academic / professional certificates, present compensation package, reference letters from previous employers, certificate of good conduct and work permit details where applicable. However, this is not exhaustive and varies with the country of assignment.

Further, given the nature of the company’s products and for the safety of our employees, prospective employees are required to undergo and pass a medical examination before joining the company. The medical examination is undertaken by a medical practitioner designated by the company and at the company’s cost.

Presentation of false documents or making false statements automatically terminates a contract of employment, without indemnity.
