Matthew Spedding

Supply Chain Graduate

"Unilever is all about brands so you can always enjoy your favourite PG Tips cuppa!"

No career or job in Supply Chain is ever the same. We’re a team that features a huge amount of diversity - in people, roles, locations and workspaces and that is what makes it a great area to work in! I joined the business working in Leeds on a European project, working to source deodorants, like Lynx and Dove, in a smarter way. Just 12 months later, I moved to the European HQ in Rotterdam where I helped develop our newest (and tastiest) Ice Cream products!

Along with variety, the responsibility given to each graduate is incredible. I was trusted to lead the team responsible for ensuring that the millions of pounds of orders we receive each day are processed accurately and on time. A lot of pressure, but you can always rely on a great support network of mentors, managers and experienced team mates.

Being at Unilever is far more than a workplace - the benefits, perks and culture are what set us apart! Flexible working is a big part of Unilever life – it allows you to work to a schedule that best fits you and with everyone having a laptop, you can work remotely from home.

Along with a fantastically supportive culture, Unilever also offers many support and wellness benefits. Every employee receives private healthcare and can access a wide range of wellbeing and mental health support easily. Many locations also have a gym on-site too which helps with burning off the free ice cream in our London and Leatherhead offices!

Of course, Unilever is all about brands so you can always enjoy your favourite PG Tips cuppa! Not to mention most sites have a staff shop so you can pick up our products at near cost price.

One piece of advice... Be yourself and relax. Don’t get caught up in being the “perfect candidate”. It will help you enjoy the process and you will shine more!
