The world's largest consumer products company, over 400 brands focussed on oils/fats and cleaning products and Marmite. Very strong UK roots. Offers 'chartered manager' degree apprenticeships in consumer market insights, supply chain and human resources, using the Open University (just fine when you have Unilever as your CV) and the 'rotational' degree offered by Pearson - good explanations on the website. If you like the look of these careers you could not get a better start in employment than these apprenticeships. Unilever also offers an IT degree apprenticeship - all the standard caveats.

The website features images of youth with giant products, which we assumed was done to remind us that we are never far from a Unilever moment in our daily lives or else, perhaps, that you could be as clean as a giant bottle of Dove if you joined their apprenticeship programme. They could be right and they certainly provide more options than most companies. However, as so often, the HR department let the side down and failed to answer our emails. They also offer a 3-year rotational degree over 3 companies with study at Pearson Business School
