I worked at Unilever in Marketing as a Global Assistant Brand Manager. I was in the Cif team, which is part of the Homecare category. I was living and breathing household cleaning daily.
Working in the global headquarters gave me real responsibility, with much of my job role focusing on strategy and innovation. I worked with a diverse team of talented individuals from all around the world and collaborated with other departments, like Finance and Research & Development.
I gained vital knowledge about the fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) industry, the marketing function and what it’s like to work for a huge multinational company. But most importantly, I learnt about myself and the career I want.
One of the best things about my placement was the opportunity Unilever offers. Students can be fast-tracked onto their Graduate Scheme. If successful you can go into your final year with a guaranteed graduate job waiting.
