Nestlé Professional introduce work placement initiative

Nestlé Professional has launched a new work placement initiative that aims to encourage employers within the industry to benefit from the pool of young talent that is involved each year with Nestlé Toque d'Or.

The scheme is open to all students who enter the 2013 competition - regardless of whether they reach the finals. As an added incentive, the eight teams that do reach the finals will be offered a week-long paid placement with contract caterer, CH&Co.

Neil Stephens, managing director of Nestlé Professional said: "Our ambition through Nestlé Toque d'Or ‘Take One' is to create an opportunity for the industry to benefit from the very best of the country's catering colleges and in doing so, give the next generation a helping hand as they look to begin their careers.

"It really couldn't be easier to get involved - we're asking you to make a pledge to take one of our students and create an opportunity for them to experience first-hand the very best our industry has to offer. Together, we can help shape the careers and employability of the next generation and help them break into an industry that despite the economic downturn, is still creating jobs and opportunities."
