My role was Assistant Digital Marketing Manager for Cornetto Ice Cream. I worked to produce assets for the brand that were used on social channels. This involved working with creative agencies and local markets.

From the start, I showed motivation and passion, so I was given autonomy. I was constantly empowered to lead projects and take credit for the work I accomplished.

Unilever is an extremely forward-thinking company and all staff at all levels are working to create a brighter future.

Endless opportunities

My placement year showed me the endless amount of opportunities there are out there for me. It exposed me to a variety of professionals, helping me to build contacts for the future.

My placement showed me how bright my future can be if I recognise opportunities, capitalise on them and work hard towards achieving anything I want to do.

It was close to perfect in terms of working in an industry and on a brand that I feel extremely passionate about.

Support at every step

I was constantly supported and recognised for my accomplishments. In only one year I feel I have made my mark within my team and have built professional and personal relationships for the future.

The School of Management’s Placement Team helped me recognise Unilever as a potential company to work. They then helped during the application process and were throughout the year when needed.
