With almost 175,000 employees in 100 countries working across many disciplines, you can see why Unilever HR offers such interesting careers.
As your career progresses, you'll take on a range of roles which will develop your specialist professional skills and general leadership competencies. Each assignment will be more challenging than the last and allow you to work alongside inspiring individuals.
While the number of job titles is comparatively small, the scope is huge. You have opportunities to work in a function such as Finance, or in a category like Foods. You could be based in one of our regions such as Asia or a particular country. Or you might be part of HR processes which includes, for example, reward, learning or talent management.
Breadth & depth
We'll support you through world-class learning programmes and further development opportunities which offer cross-functional, cross-business, cross-cultural and cross-continental exposure. All of which helps you become more effective in your role and builds the breadth and depth of experience needed for your ultimate position.
You develop yourself: 70% through job assignments, 20% through your manager's guidance and 10% through formal and informal learning. You need to set stretching goals, seek mentors who will unlock your potential, and identify roles and projects in which you can hone relevant skills.
Qualities & skills
In addition to strong interpersonal and change management skills, you're able to see the big picture while delivering on day-to-day tasks. You are genuinely interested in coaching and in how people drive business. What's more, you have the courage to take tough decisions.
