Nestlé launches youth employment plan in Ireland

Nestlé launches youth employment plan in Ireland

Food giant Nestlé has announced 95 new jobs and placements to Ireland, targeted specifically at young people.

It is part of the company's new Europe-wide initiative to improve youth employment.

The positions will be created over the next three years, and include apprenticeships, paid work experience and a graduate programme.

Nestlé's Country Manager for Ireland Deirdre O'Donoghue says more companies should play their part to tackle youth unemployment.

"We know that youth unemployment is a problem across Europe and particularly in Ireland," she said.

"Young people are in a catch-22 situation, they can't get experience without a job, or a job without experience."

"So companies like Nestlé need to help young people escape form this trap and offer them opportunities"
