Nestlés Future Talent Bursary 2024-2025

Nestlés Future Talent Bursary 2024-2025


Nestlé was founded in 1866 by Henri Nestlé, a Swiss pharmacist. In the 1870’s, the brand arrived in South Africa and today has over 3100 employees across the country.

Nestlé is the top nutrition, wellness and health company across the globe. Some of our favourite foods are manufactured by the brand, including chocolate bars, cereals, ice cream, bottled water, baby food and even pet food.


The NFT (Nestlé’s Future Talent) Bursary scheme is available for children of Nestlé employees, as well as external students based on specific eligibility criteria. The reason for the implementation of the bursary scheme is to help address the skills shortage in South Africa, as well as to ensure continuity of Nestlé’s talent needs.
