Background & Purpose of the Job

Customer Development, or CD, is what we call our Sales organization at Unilever. Customer Development works closely with our customers to pioneer new products, build categories and deploy best-in-class retail and shopper capabilities. The Winter Internship role is the primary pathway to beginning a career at Unilever.  The program introduces you to Unilever through a challenging and rewarding experience, which offers you the opportunity to contribute to business goals. As an intern, you are assigned a key business project to own within the Customer Development (Sales) function.  

Skill sets utilized and further developed during the Internship are presentation skills, team working, leadership, analytics, and building insights into action to deliver business solutions. At the conclusion of the term, all interns present their project findings to a panel of key business leaders.  Following the Internship, you may be invited to join Unilever as a Full-Time employee.

Who You Are & What You’ll Do

Work with great people and great brands to do work that makes you proud every day. Unilever offers the chance to make a real positive impact within a purpose-driven sustainable business.

  • You’re a born leader:  You seek fresh opportunities, insisting on innovation and never settling for “good enough.” You take pride in delivering work to the highest standards.
  • You’re a change-maker: You know there is always a way we can improve results and you are committed to helping others see those possibilities.
  • You’re a strategy guru: You love to think outside the box and imagine new possibilities for the business. You are a visionary, creating strategies to drive business growth and inspiring others along the way.
  • You’re a story teller: You use data to drive actionable insights to illustrate problem-solving and land compelling messages. You craft meaningful stories that resonate with a broad and diverse audience.
  • You love to win, and have fun doing it: You believe in taking the lead in the marketplace versus following. You have a positive attitude about the company's future and a passion for winning.

In Customer Development, teams are dedicated to one or more key customers (i.e. Wal-Mart, Loblaws, Sobeys, Amazon/e-Commerce), across brands & product categories. You will have an opportunity to develop proficiency in managing data using both Unilever systems as well as external Customer systems. These positions involve a high level of customer service and follow up in order to effectively meet the needs of both the internal and external customer base – interaction with multiple touch points internally and externally.
