On to my questions, I wasn't asked specific questions as such, but I was asked to

expand on my other answers.

Candidates are assessed against Unilever's competencies throughout the firm's

selection process, so it's worth familiarising yourself with each of these, and
considering how you measure up against each one.
Unilever's competencies are:
1. Growth mindset
You have a positive attitude about the company's future and a passion for growth
and winning. You take the lead and seek fresh opportunities; insist on innovation and
never settle for 'good enough'.
2. Consumers and Customer Focus
You have a passion to improve the lives of our consumers and customers and bring
their voice into everything we do and the decisions we make. You are externally
focused and go the extra mile in order to exceed consumer and customer
3. Bias for action
You bring a sense of urgency to getting things done and making tough decisions,
avoiding over-debating or over-analyzing issues. You're results-focused, and drive for
simplification by keeping the end goal in sight at all times.
4. Accountability and Responsibility
You make commitments and hold yourself accountable for delivery. You take pride in
delivering work to the highest standards and acknowledges when things are not up
to scratch. You let people know clearly, at the beginning what is expected in terms of
performance and hold them accountable for delivery.
5. Building Talent and Teams
You inspire through action and lead by example. You challenge people to do their
best work and spend time coaching individuals and teams to ensure that they realise
their full potential. You constantly challenge yourself to grow and improve.
