Grace, Business Administrator Apprentice in Human Resources

Posted: 16th of January 2019 by Emily

Why did you start your career with Unilever?

I chose to work with Unilever as their values matched with mine. Also, as I was not sure what I wanted to do, the Business Administrator Apprenticeship at Unilever was a great opportunity to gain insights into different functions.

What’s your proudest achievement at Unilever?

Organising and hosting the Spring Programme, which is a graduate scheme two day tester on my own which received positive feedback.

What do you love about working here?

The people! Everyone is so down to earth and supportive. I don’t feel like there is anyone I couldn’t go to if I was ever struggling. I have grown so close to my team, they feel like my second family.

What surprised you the most when you started?

How much responsibility you get given. Unilever gives you a real role and ownership of projects.

Which Unilever brand most interest you and why?

I have a few brands that interest me most due to the stories behind them. My favourites would have to be Lynx or Dove due to the un-stereotyping messaging they promote. Dove has some amazing videos on YouTube that I would certainly recommend watching!
