Business Administrator Apprentice Ejaz Nilam
Q1: 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!
Q2: What’s your proudest achievement at Unilever?
Overcoming my fear of presenting to a crowd.
Q3: 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.
Q4: 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.
Q5: 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!
Q6: 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.
Q7: In three words, how does it feel to work here?
Exhilarating, lively and supportive.More Experiences
