The Unilever Future Leaders Programme is designed to prepare Unilever’s Future Leaders by giving them challenging jobs that prepare them for business leadership roles. The Programme encompasses rotations within and across functions in an accelerated learning environment. This includes international stints, extended leadership contact, formal training, and professional development.

At Unilever, Finance is about so much more than numbers. You'll be part of a team that's continuously trying to bring products to consumers that meet their needs and at a price they can afford. Our operating structure is designed to be an influential force at the heart of the business by offering world-class expertise in areas where we can add real value.

Analytical mindset? Business brain? Aspirations to become a Chief Finance Officer? A career in Financial Management could be right for you. At Unilever, Financial Management is about so much more than numbers. It’s the lifeblood of our business – touching every area, informing multi-million-euro decisions, and directly influencing the development, growth and health of our brands. Unilever is one of the largest global Fast-Moving Consumer Goods companies in the world. We make some of the world’s most loved brands: Dove, Lipton, Ben & Jerrys, Marmite, Magnum, Persil and Hellmann’s, to name a few. You will have the opportunity to work on some of these great brands across some fantastic categories.

What will you be doing?

You will work across local, regional and global teams. Right across the business, we are an integral part of the teams that make strategy and investment decisions, bringing digital insights and business analytics to the table to help make better-informed choices. Your influence will directly determine the future of our brands, the way we work with our customers and how we run our business function – all having global sustainability implications.

What will the programme involve?

The three-year, world-class development programme is packed with variety and challenges. You’ll develop your individual leadership skills by working on live projects that offer you all the experience you need to become ready for your first management role. Over 3 years, you’ll take on three stretching placements across our businesses, and you may have the opportunity to work internationally. 

You’ll gain experience both in financial and management accounting and you’ll be business-facing, communicating with key business contacts. First-hand experience – it’s the fastest way to learn.

What do we look for?

We are looking for Malaysian fresh graduates in Accounting and/or Finance or a maximum of 3-years of working experience. We’re looking for strong analytical skills, digital savviness, ambition, a talent for influencing people and a real desire to understand how a business operates and succeeds. Enthusiasm and commitment go a long way. We’re looking for our future Financial Management Leaders.

The Unilever culture is varied, friendly and encourages innovative thinking. We will push and support you to achieve your potential, whilst giving you the chance to shape your career path according to your own interests, strengths and ambitions.
