    Responsibilities

  • 3. Were you given much responsibility during your placement / internship?
  • I was given a lot if responsibility from the get go at Unilever. I was immediately tasked with leading two projects on my own with my line managers support as well as supporting some of my colleagues projects at the same time. I have had meetings with global leads because of this so I feel like I was put in charge of very important tasks. I was mostly left alone to do my work.

    Support & Guidance

  • 4. How much support and guidance did you receive during your placement / internship?
  • My line manager and the wider supply chain academy were always available to support anything I was doing. If I needed more direct support no one ever said no to any of my requests and my ideas were always welcomed.

    Culture

  • 5. What was the company culture and general atmosphere like?
  • The company culture at Unilever is excellent. Most companies describe a good work environment and support but at Unilever this is actually expressed in the day to day activities. I have been able to attend any wider events due to the pandemic and remote working in my role

    Your Impressions

  • 6. To what extent did you enjoy your placement / internship?
  • I enjoyed my placement to an extent even though I was placed into a role I did not expect to be in. The team and work environment was very supportive during my time which made it much easier to perform in my role. I would not go back to the specific role since it isn't directly in line with what I want to do.

  • 8. What advice would you give to others applying to Unilever
  • The interview process at Unilever is a very unique one as it is more personal than technical so the best advice is to be open and be yourself throughout the process. Just make sure you do your initial research into the company to familiarise yourself with the values and culture, especially sustainability
