Create jobs for young people across Europe.

Attracting the future generation of pet owners is critical for us to ensure a bright future for pets, which is why it's our goal to create jobs for young people.

Our goal

By 2016, we committed to creating 1,500 job opportunities and traineeships for young people below the age of 30 at Nestlé Purina in Europe.

Our achievement to date

100% Achieved.

We proudly reached our goal, having provided 2,429 young people since 2014 with jobs at Purina. And, we will keep creating jobs for people under 30 as part of our parent company's global "Nestlé Needs YOUth" initiative, which aims to create by 2020:

  • 45,000 to 50,000 apprenticeship and traineeship opportunities
  • Enhanced collaboration with external partners to motivate them to join and to increase impact
  • 20,000 to 25,000 job opportunities for people under 30 years of age every year.

Our point of view

Youth unemployment is a major global issue. We recognise that attracting and retaining great people is critical for us both as a company and for ensuring a bright future for pets. In addition, under 30-year-olds are the next generation of pet owners, so they will play an important role in promoting the health and wellbeing of the pets of the future and helping their pet-loving peers.
