Audit IS/IT Internship

Our Audit IS/IT Interns are part of a close family we call the Nestlé Market Audit (NMA) group. They arrive here with varied academic backgrounds that range from Information Systems and Information Technology to accounting and internal audit among other related disciplines. NMA is a shared service across all Nestlé business units, which means this group audits all aspects of Purina, but also every other Nestlé operating company in the United States, Canada and Mexico. This makes for fascinating learning experiences – reviewing dry dog food production one audit and pizza the next. You'll work cross-functionally, and in tight teams, to participate in all aspects of internal control reviews of Nestlé information systems/technologies, applications, brand websites, security and data centers.

Although based at Purina World Headquarters in St. Louis, MO, you'll travel the country making visits to various office and factory locations, which will allow you to accrue deep knowledge of our business very quickly. With this knowledge, we'll empower you to develop you own career path, whether it be with us or another one of our Nestlé operating companies. We'll commit to developing you in every way every day throughout your summer experience with us so you're prepared for the next steps in your career.

We're a global organization known widely as a 'Best Place to Work'. Our culture continuously dares us to Stand Taller and ask "what's next?" Are you up to the dare?
