A number of departments across the University have been chosen to work with major international organisations, to recognise students who have demonstrated excellence within their departmental area. The management school has joined forces with Unilever to launch a specific Employer Award open exclusively to all Level One/First Year students studying an undergraduate degree with us.
The winner of the management school’s Unilever Employer Award will be rewarded with an insight day at Unilever and business mentoring from a Unilever employee. It will also be recognised on the winner’s academic record and read out at their graduation ceremony.
This really is an excellent opportunity to stand out from the crowd, gain recognition from both the University and Unilever, and build-up valuable employability skills for your CV and overall employability.
How to win
For the chance to win the Unilever Employer Award you will have to submit an analysis based around a Unilever advertising campaign, by 21st February 2014. Please check your email, or visit the Employability Hub to see the presentation which includes further details and submission guidelines.
