1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:


At the moment, I'm in the Carelines transformation team, where our aim is to bring the carelines in each market onto one central platform which is Salesforce, whilst implementing new capabilities that will improve consumer experience. My role within the team is as project support where i've been specifically managing the transitioning of emails to the new platform, supporting the delivery of train the trainer workshops, managing the implementation of an API onto sites and the migration of historic data onto the new platform. On a day to day basis I manage these different areas.

2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?


A key skill i've developed is communication as a lot of my role relies of this. I've also developed reporting and analytic skills and have learned project management skills. I've also gained a wealth of knowledge from the areas i've been involved in.

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?


I really appreciate the programme and what it has to offer, i'm enjoying my time here, have met some new friends :) and gained some valuable experience.

4. How valued do you feel by Unilever?


I feel very valued by Unilever to the point where I don't feel like an apprentice, i feel like just another member in the team which is strange given my age and limited experience. I'm given real work which is important to gain the most out of the programme and i'm well supported whilst doing so.

5. How well organised/structured is your programme?


Well organised, no complaints.

6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?


Monthly reviews and can email him whenever necessary.

6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?


A lot to start with, but they give you more responsibility and freedom as you develop in your role and as they begin to trust you.

7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?


Does the job, £16,000 a year.

8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?


There are community and social opportunities outside of work which is really great to get involved with.
