Unilever Future Leaders Programme
On any given day, 2.5 billion people use Unilever products to feel good, look good and get more out of life – giving us a unique opportunity to build a brighter future.
When consumers reach for nutritionally balanced foods or indulgent ice creams, affordable soaps that combat disease, luxurious shampoos or everyday household care products, there’s a good chance the brand they pick is one of ours. Seven out of every ten households around the world contain at least one Unilever product, and our range of world-leading, household-name brands includes Lipton, Knorr, Dove, Axe, Hellmann’s, Ben & Jerry’s and Via. Through our 400+ household brands, we are creating a bright future for our business and our planet – and you can be part of it. There are no limits to what you can achieve at Unilever.
Unilever’s Future Leaders Programme (UFLP) develops tomorrow’s leaders, today.
The UFLP is a three-year programme where you will have the opportunity to see the whole business and try different roles. During the programme you could be based at different business units across Europe. You will be part of the local, Nordic and European team and will fast create a big network across the business.
Getting a delicious Magnum ice cream to a consumer in the right condition at the right time and price takes serious business expertise. Supply Chain Management is responsible for the whole process, from sourcing raw materials to ensuring a product reaches the shelf. The breadth and depth of influence this function has makes it key to how we realise our vision to build a brighter future. Whichever area you work in – Planning, Customer Service, Manufacturing or Logistics – you’ll need to be ambitious, an excellent analytical thinker with a drive for getting things done.
Finance at Unilever is about more than just numbers. It’s a craft that requires you to get to the heart of multi-billion euro brands. People will seek your advice on brand development, pricing strategy, innovation business cases and more – and they’ll trust you to see past the figures to the bigger picture. You’ll be involved in evaluating the benefits of innovation on major brands. Over several placements you’ll be working in cross-functional teams with other business functions, getting involved with financial controlling, management reporting and business partnering.
Unilever’s HR function supports the wellbeing and champions the success of our employees. People skills are essential. The role of HR as a core strategic business area means we look for people with ambition, an interest in business and the courage to offer creative insights and execute change. Individuals who can build relationships and have a talent in influencing and negotiation go a long way. The limitless opportunities at Unilever create fully engaging innovative entrepreneurship.
Marketing & Sales at Unilever
Marketing teams bring great products to life in the eyes of consumers. Building our brands and communications means building and maintaining relationships that can last for generations. A creative flair will see you go far, but marketing is commercially focused and demands strong business skills to actually make things happen. It takes a deep sense of logic, ambition, organisational and analytical skills, a head for figures and great gut instincts. Customer Development (Sales) ensures that our brands are available wherever the shopper wishes to buy them. Managing relationships with key retailers with skill and sensitivity makes all the difference. Our customers recognise the effectiveness with which our work drives our business and theirs. This has led to a number of retailers recognising us as their supplier of the year.
What do we look for?
It is important that you have fully developed communication skills. But most important is an analytical, result/business-oriented and energetic personality. We are looking for great internal drive and someone who takes ownership.
