Job Description

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 are responsible for auditing factories, distribution centers, headquarter locations, and satellite offices for ALL of Nestlé—which gives you exposure to different parts of the world and the business. As a Staff Internal Auditor, you’ll become part of a close family we call the Nestlé Internal Audit (NIA). We’re a melting pot, as we’re from all across the country. Some of us have accounting degrees and others have backgrounds in the sciences or marketing. But, that’s what makes our mix work—having different perspectives and skill sets all in one room. This approach allows us to view each audit from multiple vantage points and provide full scale end-to-end service to the Nestlé business.

You’ll be assigned to a team of 4 or 5 others working together to complete the full cycle of an audit. You’ll plan prior to the audit, travel to an assigned location with your team, and remain there auditing various factors, which could include sales/marketing, accounting/finance, factory operations, supply chain/logistics, cloud computing systems, human resources processes, public relations 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. Let’s keep it simple—we’re looking for an analytical, critical thinker who takes great pride and passion in their work and thrives on a challenge in a team environment. #JoinUs PRIMARY RESPONSIBILITIES:
