Many of our senior business leaders began their careers in Finance. So the only limits to your progress will be your own ambition & ability.
Unilever is constantly changing to respond to a highly competitive environment. Similarly Finance is a dynamic function that constantly develops to rise to the business challenges. This brings opportunities to follow a greater variety of career paths.
Our aim is to help people build their professional capabilities, both to succeed within Unilever and to remain market competitive. We do this through scope to learn 'on the job', world-class development programmes and professional qualification opportunities for those with management potential.
Depth & breadth
We offer regular secondments and projects across locations, functions and units. Secondments are the chance to learn about diverse areas of the business and gain international exposure. Projects provide opportunities for developing specific skills and teamworking. We also provide International Assignment opportunities for those individuals who have created value adding contributions and demonstrated the skills and behaviors expected of leaders.
There is no one definition of career success. Which is why we recognize the importance of flexibility so that people can keep growing in their roles. For instance, you could become a mentor or trainer. This will enrich your day job while making a major contribution to capability building within the business.
