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

Technology touches everything we do, from the sourcing and distribution of sustainable ingredients around the world to the marketing, measurement and selling of our brands on platforms like Facebook and our partner websites. Areas you could go into:

  • Innovation: Identify ways to improve business areas and processes and demonstrate the business benefits.
  • IT Services: Allow you to learn about improving service deliveries using vendors and external suppliers, and how to develop network infrastructures.
  • Global: To understand technology and become an effective Future Leader, you’ll be responsible for a team of people around the world, the end-to-end delivery of a project – and even your own budget.
