Unilever’s Future Leaders Programme (UFLP), attracts c.250,000 applications for 800 hires in 54 countries. Since millennials will make up 50% of the workforce by 2020 Unilever must ensure that they continue to attract the brightest talent. To recruit these digital disrupters game-changing approach we have created is a radical departure from anything that has gone before.

A strengths-based approach to candidate assessment has long been considered innovative to date. But the new Unilever process benefits from our pioneering approach to interviewing, using future-focused scenario-based questions. This approach has more emphasis on role-fit and future potential. It reduces chances of rejecting candidates from less privileged backgrounds and provides a more engaging and realistic job preview than ever before.
