Unilever’s 2020 Internship Programme For Current Bachelor Students Starting From the Second Year and Fresh Graduates
In South Africa, Unilever is known as the #1 Employer for the latest 3 years. It means Unilever doesn’t only rely upon its extensive ranges of foods, homecare, and personal care brands that successfully retain the market, but its more than 3,500 full-time employees are also collaborating together to preserve and improve on Unilever’s product qualities as well as service deliveries to Unilever’s entire customers.
Since 2011, this company led by Paul Polman has invested nearly R4 billion on several projects’ constructions, including R600 million on state-of-the-art ice cream factories that produce unique brands, such as Magnum or Cornetto. Such a huge investments make it promising for those who want to work as interns in Unilever.
Student and fresh graduate interns will also get exposures to Unilever partners, such as Oxfam, UNICEF, and the World Food Programme when they work as interns for Unilever, which will further enhance their overall capabilities. After all, Unilever offers a set of innovative and creative internship programme schemes as described in this article that will benefit current and future interns’ personal and professional growth.
Unilever’s Internship Programme’s Schemes and the Overview of Its Requirements
Unilever offers two different internship programme schemes to develop leadership potentials and hands-on skills of the aspiring interns, which are the regular Internship programme named ULIP and the Graduate Future Leader programme called UFLP. Generally, UFLP’s requirement is for fresh graduates who aim to internationalise their career while working as Unilever’s interns, while current statuses as Undergraduate students who are at least in their second year of study are required to be eligible for the ULIP scheme.
In Unilever’s ULIP programme scheme, students will get competitive amounts of remuneration while they work on Unilever’s business projects under Unilever’s senior leaders’ supervision as well as build professional networks with them. They will also have accesses to Unilever’s training programmes, which will add values to their CV once they graduate. Visit ULIP’s main page for more information on the departments in the ULIP programme scheme as well as the requirements.
On the other hand, the UFLP scheme in Unilever’s internship programme schemes is meant to shape future leaders through various on-the-job training sessions and projects that directly engage the interns’ leadership skills. In many cases, there are rotations between Unilever’s functions to make fresh graduates be able to work in and outside South Africa.
Like its ULIP counterpart, UFLP also has coaching and mentoring sessions in order for candidates to be promoted faster and develop professionally. UFLP’s main page has these matters, including UFLP departments and its diverse set of requirements, covered.
