WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT?
Unilever’s Project Management apprenticeship is designed for individuals wishing to undertake a career as a project professional. Our apprentices support our UK and Global teams and we have vacancies in different functions including Marketing, Human Resources and IT.
As an apprentice, you’ll receive on-the-job experience along with formal training to gain the knowledge and skills you’ll need to support our business. The qualification covers principles of project management, practice of project management, and leadership and delegation. Typical roles include Project Co-ordinator, Project Executive or Project Support Officer.
“Not only has my apprenticeship given me the opportunity to earn whilst I learn, it has given me exposure to project management in a global organisation and has equipped me with a great set of transferable skills. I've received great support from everyone here at Unilever and feel confident that my future is going to be bright!” Becky Darlington, Project Management Apprentice
