With UFLP we aim to develop you both professionally and personally into Future Leaders. We have prepared a structured development programme, which focuses on three areas:
1. Formal learning
You will follow a structured learning roadmap that encompasses a mix of general, professional and leadership skills, delivered through e-learning and classroom training. General skills refer to ‘soft skill’ training, for example, business communication, presentation, influencing skills. Professional skills refer to the expertise of your specific business area, for example, marketing skills for marketing trainees, account management for customer development trainees, or HR management for HR trainees, etc. Leadership Skills aim to build up your leadership potential and prepare you for the future role as managers and leaders.
2. Learn by experience
From day one you’ll be given real responsibility to solve a variety of important business issues. You’ll be rotated to different business areas, learning different sides of the business and working on CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) projects to contribute to the business success. We believe in the wisdom of “Learning by Doing”, and this is the core part of the development programme.
After 24 months in the business, you will surely get international exposure by working in other countries with regional or global team . With this, you will experience how the world is interconnected and how we a global company work together towards our shared vision.
3. Learn through people
We’ll invest a lot time and resources in you and will support you with business mentoring, individual coaching from senior managers. We will provide you with a ‘buddy’, who will understand what you are going through in the first days with Unilever and give you useful advice. The whole support system works together to develop you into successful business leaders of tomorrow, and with high speed.
We aim to develop you successfully into managers within few years, and global business leaders in the longer run. This is a challenging goal, but we believe you can make it happen if you always show the Passion to learn, to Do More and Contribute more to make things better. The structured development program is there to help you succeed.
A highly competitive starting salary, an annual bonus based on performance, and a long list of other in-kind benefits, including Unikhoe (private medical scheme), health check-up), and Pension fund will be just a start. As you progress your career, you will get higher salary, more benefits adequate to your contribution to Unilever. You will then be able to improve your life personally and support others.
