Engineering Management Development Associate Job Description

For more than 30 years, our Management Development Associate program has developed our future leaders. This program allows you to embark on a personal and professional development experience a classroom can’t offer.

Joining Nestlé Purina as an Engineering Management Development Associate means you're joining our factory family to play a key role in leading and executing capital projects that impact the larger business. You’ll experience information systems, quality assurance, supply chain, accounting, human resources, production, R&D engineering, and operations performance to understand how each of these areas collaborate with the engineering management work that you’ll do. Following from there, you’ll experience a unique breadth of work within your functional area and focus on becoming a domain expert at the factory you’re assigned to.

Why a leadership developmental role with us versus somewhere else? Taking the engineering path of our Management Development Associate program is a full-time position that puts you on the fast track to management on the manufacturing side of our business. You are the future leader.

Primary responsibilities

  • Develop detailed project scopes that account for operational impact
  • Be a problem solver by crafting solutions to problems in accordance with engineering standards
  • Prepare specifications, bid scopes as well as evaluate bids and awards for construction projects
  • Oversee project start-ups and contractors
  • Master plant process flows, utility flows, capacities, procedures, and practices
  • Develop leadership skills and experience and demonstrate maintenance supervisory capability

Basic Qualifications (Minimum):

  • Must be open to relocation to one or more of our 23 production facilities across the U.S.
  • B.S. in Engineering or expected to attain by June 2022

Preferred qualifications

  • Prior co-op or practicum experience; manufacturing experience; student organization or other leadership experience

It is our business imperative to remain a very inclusive workplace.

To our veterans and separated service members, you're at the forefront of our minds as we recruit top talent to join Nestlé Purina. The skills you've gained while serving our country, such as flexibility, agility, and leadership, are much like the skills that will make you successful in this role. We hope you'll consider sharing in our mission--you'll join a cohort of others who have chosen to call Nestlé Purina home.

The Nestlé Companies are equal employment and affirmative action employers and look for diversity in qualified candidates for employment.

Prior to the next step in the recruiting process, we welcome you to inform us confidentially if you may require any special accommodations in order to participate fully in our recruitment experience.
