Audit at Nestlé isn't your typical financial auditing - it's operational. That means we use a systematic approach to review the effectiveness, efficiency and economy of operations across the business. We're not just auditing Nestlé Purina's internal business units (e.g. Human Resources, Marketing, Supply Chain, etc.); we're auditing all of Nestlé - the factories, distribution centers, headquarters and satellite offices.
As one of our Audit Interns, you will become part of a close family we call the Nestlé Internal Audit (NIA) group. We're a melting pot of sorts - what do we mean by that? It means that some of us have accounting degrees, or are working toward them, and others have backgrounds in the sciences or engineering. But, that's what makes our mix work; having enough different brains and skill sets in the room so we approach every audit at different vantage points. Since we're operational auditors, we're looking at everything with an analytical mind and an eye on efficiency and opportunity for improvement.
Our auditors travel frequently - and for you it's no different. You'll be assigned to a team of 4 or 5 others who will take you under their wing working together to complete the full cycle of an audit. You'll plan for two weeks prior to the audit, travel to an assigned location with your team and remain there for three weeks auditing various factors, which could include our production processes, sales functions, accounting practices, safety programs, cloud computing systems, or any other function that Nestlé performs. At the conclusion of the audit, you'll return to your home base in St. Louis, MO to wrap up the audit, evaluate the process and receive feedback.
Real-world audits. Real impact. And a dynamic, fun culture you won't find with any other audit group. Are you up to the dare? At the conclusion of your internship, you'll be considered to join our Internal Audit team full-time upon graduation. From there, it's up to you what you want to get out of your career but your internship experience and vast knowledge on the business puts you on a fast track to management and other functions at Nestlé.
