Business Administrator Apprenticeship

What’s it all about?

Unilever Business Administration apprentices provide administrative support to our UK and Global teams in a variety of departments including Marketing, Customer Development (Sales), Supply Chain, Human Resources and Communication. 

If successful, you will be placed in a department that matches your strengths and where possible, your career aspirations too!  

As an apprentice, you’ll receive on-the-job training and experience in an administrative position along with formal training to gain the knowledge and skills you’ll need to support our business operations.  You’ll join a team with a dedicated line manager committed to enhancing your career experiences. You’ll be given opportunities to develop the skills aligned to your role and responsibilities to enable you to take control of your career.  

‘My apprenticeship has helped to kick-start my career. I'm gaining unparalleled experience, a wealth of skills and knowledge, and forming real connections with inspiring people who are truly committed to my development’.
