We are committed to helping people feel good, look good and get more out of life through brands and services. That’s what makes us one of the largest, most successful suppliers of fast moving consumer goods on the planet.
Our business is not just about selling products. Last year we contributed $120 million to communities around the world. We’re doing well by doing good. We’ve achieved our success with uncompromising honesty, strong environmental ethics, intuitive insights, respect for people and stringent standards at a global, local and community level.
Keeping the world’s best loved brands out in front takes talent, drive and fresh thinking. Ultimately, it’s our 171,000 employees who will help us answer the question: ‘What do we want to do now and in the future?’ We don’t ask our people to simply join our business. We ask them to become our business, driving it forward as if it were their own.
Our multi-talented, global workforce brings a vast range of experience, knowledge and success. What unites us is creativity, leadership, resilience and a passion for succeeding with integrity. Our people are the heart of everything we do. We believe in giving them access to great opportunities, and we want them to fulfil their personal and professional aspirations. As they grow, we grow. With this as our motto, we’ve built a graduate programme that’s been the launching point for some truly amazing careers. It’s fair to say the opportunities with Unilever are endless
Sustainability – making a difference
We’ve always focused on doing the right thing, believing our brands can improve the quality of people’s lives. As our business grows, so do our responsibilities. We have the huge ambition of doubling in size, whilst halving our environmental impact, and to achieve this, we need new ideas that will fundamentally change how business works.
By 2020 we will also help more than 1 billion people take action to improve their health and well- being, and source 100% of our agricultural raw materials sustainably. To do this, we have launched the Unilever Sustainable Living Plan which details 50 solid targets that will inspire billions of people to take small, everyday actions that make a big difference.
Our community involvement is focused around the areas of nutrition, hygiene and sustainability. Unilever aims to make a real difference by encouraging our employees to take initiative and help others through various projects in the community.

Customer Development / Customer Management (Sales) Future Leaders Program
How would you position a new product in a competitive market? How would you persuade retailers to take it on, to put up new displays, to take the risk of buying lots of stock for something new and unfamiliar? What will you do? Over three placements, you will work in the areas of Account Management, Category Management and Business to Business. In Account Management, you’ll work with a certain ‘type’ of customer, building relationships, developing promotions, negotiating and gathering an understanding of consumers. In Category Management, you’ll cover a category of products, becoming an expert on their marketplace, consumers and competitors and advising customers on suitable stocks for their demographics. In Business to Business, you’ll sell a range of food products, using your product expertise and relationship skills to keep preferred supplier relationships with companies like the Hilton Group and the Ministry of Defence. Who is it for? Any work in this area demands a lot of motivation and an ability to tackle tough situations. After all, you’ll be on the front lines, working as an ambassador for our products, making sure people forget the competition and think of Unilever first.
Marketing Future Leaders Program
How exactly do you make some of the UK’s most popular brands even more popular? How do you take products that in some cases have a 100-year heritage behind them and bring them bang up to date? What will you do? You’ll learn your craft hands-on over the course of up to three placements – and you’ll also receive some of the best marketing training around. You will work in the areas of Brand Development and Brand Building. You could be working for a local company or a regional innovation centre, customer development or market research. There are even opportunities to work on an international assignment. Who is it for? We’re behind some the world’s most recognizable brands, but resting on our laurels isn’t going to keep us competitive. To give us that constant edge, you’ll need expert knowledge of your brands and the people who use them. We are looking for people who are analytical yet creative, with good gut instinct and who’ll be able to find ways to make our products fly off the shelves.
2 billion times a day someone somewhere chooses a Unilever product. That means you'll be working with a portfolio of brands that include market leaders and household names, such as Lady’s Choice, Wall’s, Axe, Sunsilk and Breeze, to name a few. You will get the opportunity to make a genuine impact on people's lives.

The Unilever Future Leaders Programme (UFLP) is about growing iconic multi-million dollar, market-leading brands from day one.

So mobility and flexibility are really important.
