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 two 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.

Undergraduates can apply for placement opportunities in one of the following areas - Supply Chain Management, Customer Development (Sales), HR Management, Marketing, Technology Management, Financial Management and Research & Development.

We have a strong performance culture with challenging goals, future focussed feedback and drive for innovation and ambition in an inclusive informal environment. You will thrive by gaining exposure to real business challenges where your energy and fresh thinking will have an impact. First-hand experience - it’s the fastest way to learn.

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 and Industrial 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 Summer and Industrial Placement 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, 20-25 days’ annual leave and training through virtual and instructor-led sessions.

Our application process involves;

  • Online application
  • Digital interview
  • Half day selection board

With such a great ambition lie exciting challenges for the company, our brands, and a fantastic opportunity for graduates to have a great head start in their career, make a real difference to Unilever’s business and the world around us!
