Reasons Why Unilever Can’t Wait For The #EnactusUKNationals

At Unilever, we can’t wait until the Enactus national finals – just under two weeks to go!

IMG_7948This is actually my first time attending an Enactus national finals, and I am really looking forward to it. I’m currently on a Marketing industrial placement at Unilever, and as part of my role I am working with Enactus as I have always been a supporter of their great work. I have organised Project Den’s here at Unilever for our ITC competition – which I have really enjoyed being part of. It has been great to get to meet some Enactus members already, and I am excited to meet even more of you on the 11th April.

For the event itself, At Unilever HQ we are pulling out all the stops…

 1.      Careers fair stand

We are organising an extra special surprise for this year’s careers fair. We don’t want to give too much away – but it’s frozen. Wait – maybe that is too much information. Forget we said anything. Come and visit us during the day to find out more…

 2.      Dinner

Of course we will all be hungry after the excitement of nationals. Come and join us for dinner on the 11th April, where there will be two exciting guest speakers. Details have been e-mailed to students, you have until end of 31st March to register.

 3.      Global Goals Accelerator

We are really excited about our new initiative (partnering with Enactus), The Global Goals Accelerator. Two Unilever brand teams, Domestos and Lifebuoy, will each invest up to £25,000 (a maximum of £5k or £2.5k per project) in Enactus projects that contribute and align with the Global Goals and their individual brand objectives. Are you interested? Please visit for more info, or contact

All of us in the Unilever Enactus team are really looking forward to seeing you at the nationals event. And of course – good luck!

Richard James, Marketing Industrial Placement Student and Enactus ITC Lead.
