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’ll become part of a close family we call the Nestlé Market Audit (NMA) group. We’re a melting pot of sorts – we’re from all across the country. Some of us have accounting degrees, or are working toward them, and others of us 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 up to 50% of the time – 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 three weeks prior to the audit, travel to an assigned location with your team and remain there for 3 weeks auditing various factors, which could include our safety programs, cloud computing systems, human resources processes, etc. 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 vibrant, fun culture you won’t find with any other audit group. Are you up to the dare? Join our Nestlé family.
