What will you be doing?
Unilever Operations (UniOps) touches every area of the business providing internal core services and enabling Unilever to respond to the big technological challenges all businesses face these days; for example, the buying trends of millennials or the need to be agile in a fast-changing world.
The range of opportunities available in UniOps is vast, and some of our current future leaders’ placements have included Sustainable Business & IT, Customer Development (Sales), Information and Analytics and Data Engineering just to name a few. We aim to provide experiences which deliver the relevant expertise for your chosen stream, as well as the commercial experience needed to develop future leaders that will enable Unilever to win in the marketplace.
Our purpose is to transform the way we make a difference to the lives of our people worldwide, and to power a consumer-centric, future ready, and data intelligent business through disruption, digital innovation, and agile acceleration.
You could be working with our technology partners like Microsoft, Amazon, and SAP, driving the delivery of a global programme, or working with niche technology start-ups and industry innovators to solve business and sustainability challenges.
What do we look for?
We are proud to offer three streams to allow future leaders to develop varying levels of expertise whilst also accelerating their business acumen, commercial knowledge and leadership potential.
Cross-functional Stream: In this stream we look to develop future leaders who are able to think about the experiences we provide our employees, our consumers, our customers and the business we work with on a day-to-day basis. Amongst others, we will provide experiences anywhere between our customer development teams and employee experience, covering everything from the physical workplace and the technologies used within it, to the support services we offer our employees to make their day to day lives simpler.
Technology Stream: In this stream we look to develop a genuine passion for business, brands and technology as well as being excited by digital developments. Amongst others, we will provide experiences in cyber security, cloud computing, data and analytics and implementing new technology developments at a global scale.
Data and Analytics Stream: In this stream you will develop deep expertise in data and work with cutting edge technologies in the cloud, allowing you to bring actionable insights to our business which will allow Unilever to grow, be more competitive and make sustainable living commonplace. You will be immersed in experiences across data analytics, data science and data engineering, leveraging the vast scale of information available at Unilever.

The three-year, world-class development programme is packed with variety and challenge, with the opportunity of promotion to manager level after 3 years. You’ll develop your individual leadership skills by working on live projects which offer you all the experience you need to become ready for your first management role.
