Port Sunlight is the centre for Unilever’s Home Care and Beauty & Personal Care Research & Development with major programmes for Hair, Laundry, Deodorants and Household Care being run from the site.
The Unilever Port Sunlight R&D site is accessed from Bromborough Road, Wirral, CH63 3JW
The site’s 2024 Y12 Work Experience Programme will run in one-week blocks, (Monday-Friday 09:00-16:00), during the weeks commencing 10 June, 17 June and 1 July 2024.
This offer will give successful applicants the opportunity to experience the range of functions that take place across the Port Sunlight site including: Formulation, Digital, Packaging, Consumer Technical Insight and Processing.
You will learn the processes of working for a fast-moving consumer goods company and what it entails – from concept development to the product launch on market shelves – via tours of the facilities and seminars/workshops hosted by staff from the key functions on site.
The content will be relevant across most Sixth Form subjects, including but not limited to: Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Maths, Statistics, Economics, Engineering, Design and Technology, Art, Media, English, Marketing, Business & Finance, Computer Science (3D Printing, coding and modelling), Psychology, Sociology, Geography, PSHE. Applications are welcome from any students with an interest in understanding more about how a company like Unilever works and learning more about the available range of roles and opportunities, with a view to perhaps exploring a similar career path.
