Ejaz, Business Administrator Apprentice in Customer Development
Why did you start your career with Unilever?
The opportunity to work for a company sitting right in the top five list of consumer goods companies worldwide, gaining valuable work experience whilst earning – it’s a great way!
What’s your proudest achievement at Unilever?
Overcoming my fear of presenting to a crowd.
What do you love about working here?
On-site gym, free ice-cream, agile working concept, great work-life balance and most days are never the same.
How would you describe your job to your parents?
The customer I work with is ASDA and I have full responsibility for the Baby Dove range.
To keep it simple, I’m the supplier for all Baby Dove products to ASDA in the UK.
What’s the funniest thing that’s happened to you at work?
I had a team meeting based in Leeds. I got lost trying to find my way from the hotel to the board room which meant I turned up twenty-five minutes late! As I came late they made me sing the Fresh Prince of Bel Air in front of everyone!
What surprised you the most when you started?
How nice and welcoming everyone was, from my team accounting director to the chef who serves me lunch. I expected that in a large company like Unilever everyone would be too busy to give time out of their days to you, I was wrong.
In three words, how does it feel to work here?
Exhilarating, lively and supportive.
