A Day in the Life of an International Auditor

  • Your suitcase is packed as you make an early start towards the airport.  The destination for this project is Cape Town, but indeed over the past few months you've been able to travel to many countries across the Middle East, Pakistan and Africa and beyond
  • On landing in Cape Town, you're united with colleagues from your project team. Working together in three-month sprints gives you the chance to build close relationships, and you really enjoy the diversity of the team
  • You arrive to the Head Office of Nestlé South Africa, and at first you meet the senior leaders of the market  They outline the challenge, and explain that your first stop will be to visit the factory to speak to operators about the 'as is' process.  Expectations are set, introductions are made, and already your mind starts racing about the opportunities ahead
  • You start to work on assigned tasks and responsibilities in your team, and prepare your notes for the interviews you'll conduct for the afternoon
  • That afternoon you're off to meet the operators. This is a hands on role, so you want to understand as much as you can to be able to successfully recommend improvements
  • Exhausted, but excited, you go back to the hotel, planning for tomorrow.  No two days are ever the same, but you're excited about another opportunity to really drive our business forward across functions from marketing and sales to HR and Supply Chain
  • And here comes the weekend, and you are out to explore beautiful Cape Town after a full week of work!

What will make you successful

  • Masters/Professional degree in Business Administration, Accounting, Economics, Engineering (incl. Food, Environmental …) or comparable degree.
  • 1-3 years of professional business experience (e.g. Finance, Audit, Marketing, Sales, Supply Chain, Manufacturing & Sustainability Operations, Quality, Industrial Performance...)
  • Strong overall business acumen. Finance literacy preferred.
