Six Teams from GIKI, NUST, LUMS and IoBM will compete at the finale on 19 January to represent Pakistan in London
ISLAMABAD – Unilever has announced finalists for the Unilever Talent Hunt (UTH) 2015-16, Pakistan’s largest talent hunt program. Six teams representing GIKI, NUST, LUMS and IoBM have moved through to the final round of the competition and will compete against each other for the chance to represent Pakistan at the global finale in London.
The finalists will be working to solve business cases provided by brands including Lifebuoy, Domex, Sunsilk, Surf Excel and Knorr. The teams will get another two weeks to finalize their proposed solutions for the finale with further mentoring provided by Unilever brand teams. In addition to representing Pakistan at the global finale, winners of the Pakistan leg will also get direct access to the Unilever Future Leaders Program (UFLP) Assessment Center, the first step towards employment as a Management Trainee at Unilever in Pakistan.
In 2015, UTH reached out to 5,500 students across leading universities, with 900 students registering for the contest. The Unilever Talent Hunt has been built around Unilever’s sustainability agenda — the Unilever Sustainable Living Plan (USLP) — which aims to create awareness on social needs. It encourages students to learn about, and solve real-life problems, as well as contribute towards making sustainable living commonplace.
