Consider your strengths but also be able to identify any areas where you would like to improve. Most importantly, be yourself. Unilever loves people with passion.  If you’re not passionate about the company then maybe Unilever is not the company for you!

Tim Munden  – Chief Learning Officer

 

Please tell us a bit about yourself?

And it was exactly what I got – a lot of different experiences in very different environments and situations!

Enactus and Unilever

In your time at Unilever as a graduate or placement student, you are set your work goals under a framework known as your “3+1’s” which are linked to the Standards of Leadership (you can find out more about here: http://www.unilever.co.uk/careers-jobs/graduates/application-process/).  Typically, the “3” of the goals are on “main role” at Unilever and the “+1” is your chance to support and develop Unilever’s graduate recruitment goals. This could mean being a part of an on-campus team promoting Unilever at a university or managing the onboarding process for the next group of students and graduates to join. From now on, you’ll also have the opportunity to work in developing Unilever’s relationship with Enactus UK.
