About Unilever

"Unilever is one of the largest fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) companies in the world. It makes some of the world’s most loved brands: Dove, Lynx, PG Tips, Ben & Jerrys, Sure, Magnum, Knorr and Hellmann’s, to name a few. Unilever takes care of the whole supply chain of its products, from development and sourcing right through to production, marketing and distribution. 172,000 people globally produce brands that are sold in 190 countries and used by 2.5 billion people daily.

Around the world, Unilever products help people look good, feel good and get more out of life. What's Unilever’s challenge? To double the size of the business, while reducing its environmental impact and increasing its social impact. Unilever is looking for talented graduates who have the will and the drive to help Unilever achieve this ambition.

We have a strong performance culture with challenging goals, future focussed feedback and drive for innovation and ambition in an inclusive informal environment. We will push you to achieve your potential and make a big business impact where you learn from the best. First-hand experience - it’s the fastest way to learn.

Unilever: You are more than your job title

We put labels on our products not on our people. If you want to feel proud of what you do and make others proud too, join us. Get a glimpse into life at Unilever and discover how you can help make a better business, a better world and a better you.

Job Description

Working with our global supply chain will allow you to unleash your curiosity and pioneering spirit within an inspirational working environment, where you’ll be nurtured by the brightest minds in our business. Areas you could go into:

  • Supply Management – You’ll build strong relationships with suppliers to purchase the best possible materials.
  • Manufacturing – Convert raw materials into Unilever’s beloved products, responding to demand while improving efficiencies.
  • Planning - Can you help us predict the products our consumers will love – both tomorrow and in two years’ time?
  • Logistics and Customer Service – The sweet spot across our whole business – can we deliver the product a consumer wants, to the right supermarket shelf, at the right time.?

The Programme

Students must have completed the penultimate year of their undergraduate degree by the time they start their placement and be returning to study after their placement. Our Summer (3 months) Placements are a chance to showcase your ambition, thinking and skills, with total support from a line manager and a buddy.

Students who successfully pass our programmes will be fast-tracked to the final stage of the selection process for the UFLP programme – The Discovery Centre Day.

We also have excellent benefits to support you through your placement including a salary of £20,000, 20 days' annual leave and online training. For Supply Chain, you’ll need a strong background in Electrical, Mechanical, Chemical, Manufacturing or similar engineering qualification. We also accept Mathematics, Business, Technology, or Design-related disciplines.
