Dion Lim | ULIP,
My 12 weeks at Unilever as a Finance intern have been nothing short of fulfilling. During my internship stint, I was entrusted with the responsibility to lead discussions that will enable the team to better understand current process flows. To streamline the latter, I was also given the autonomy to ideate and propose feasible improvements to value-add on my team’s projects.
Beyond the activities within Finance, I was also given the opportunity in crafting a sustainable marketing activation plan for one of Unilever’s products via the ULIP Batch Project! (Which was truly eye-opening as I was able to look at the business from a different perspective!)
All in all, each day that I have spent with Unilever was for a golden moment for me to grow and make a visible difference. I am always thankful for the level of trust that my manager and team have had in me. It is heartening to know that I will always have a support system at Unilever that will guide and groom me unconditionally, and to which I can reach out - be it rain or shine. I could only give you a sneak peek here, but you should definitely give this experience a go for yourself! 🙂 #noregrets
Darrel Ang | ULIP,
Unilever stood out among the other choices available when I was choosing my internship. Beyond a purposeful sustainability agenda behind all business activities, Unilever also provided me with a supportive and flexible environment in this journey.
My work here allowed me to play a key role in improving business efficiency through the digitalisation agenda of procurement processes. I was empowered to lead discussions to understand current process flows before proposing improvements through automated processes. Being new to Supply Chain, I was lucky to receive strong support from my Line Manager and other colleagues, which aided my learning curve. I also got a chance to support the Unilever Sustainable Living Plan through the development of a channel to promote ingredients transparency.
This internship might be fraught with challenges, but if you are looking for an experience that could sharpen your readiness for the global workforce, look no further, Unilever is the right choice.
Kimberly Lai | ULIP,
Unilever is truly a land of opportunity. It is a dream come true to work alongside a dynamic and supportive team in developing the first-ever purpose-led campaign for one of Unilever’s big brands. This experience has given me valuable insights into what the world needs, and what we can do to help.
Besides gaining firsthand experience in launching new products, I also had a chance to work with international agencies to spearhead ethnic marketing in many large countries. As with big projects, the processes are never easy. Nevertheless, these endeavours instil a sense of purpose and responsibility in me. They propel me to leave my mark, and to make the world a safer and more inclusive home for all.
Unilever has given me more than just an internship, I've gained a sense of empowerment in life, and I could not be more grateful for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
Ang Chong Kiat | ULIP,
Every day in Unilever is an opportunity for me to learn and make a difference. I was entrusted with the responsibility and autonomy to lead and oversee various projects and initiatives such as the Digital Talent Campaign for Mid-Career Recruitment and coming up with Learning and Development plans.
Through these experiences, I was able to hone my project management abilities and develop strategic thinking skills that are useful in my personal development.
I am also grateful to work alongside a nurturing and supportive team who is there every step along the way to guide and mentor me.
