York City Council welcomes Nestle announcement

I am keen to see as many of the positions as possible come to York. As one of York’s biggest employers, Nestlé has also played an important part in this city’s history.

We are hopeful that this announcement today marks a significant jobs boost, which will provide new career opportunities for young people in the city as a key part of York’s growing future”.
