Job ID:
Date posted:

Our Future Leaders Programme will ignite the leader in you. This unique programme is designed to develop Unilever’s Future Leaders (UFL) by providing challenging and purposeful opportunities that accelerate their readiness to take on business leadership roles.

We develop future Unilever leaders

The programme is designed to get to know as many areas within Marketing and Sales as possible and to prepare yourself for the future business challenges through hands-on learning alongside world-class experts. You’ll develop your individual leadership skills by working on live projects which offer you all the experience you need to become ready for your first management role. Over three years you’ll cover up to five or six placements that might include international assignment as well in one of our European offices.

Real tasks from the first day

On the Marketing & Sales programme you'll get to undertake placements in both Marketing and Customer Development (Sales). In Marketing you’ll be working on popular brands (like Dove, Ben & Jerry’s,  Knorr, Domestos). You will be constantly deepening the already expert knowledge of these brands and the people who use them. You’ll use this level of insight to help developing strategies on an international level and then translating these strategies into local market contexts. Working with both global and local teams, you can plan and execute marketing campaigns and gain experience in brand building.

In Customer Development you’ll build partnerships with a wide range of our customers, which can include: supermarkets, convenience stores, drug stores, discounters, online retailers, or even ice cream parlours. This will help us reach our target markets, which could mean working together to maximise a new product launch, recommending the right range of products or negotiating an annual business plan. You can even gain experience in NRM (Net Revenue Management), Field Sales and Customer marketing.

As part of your personalized rotation plan, you can even gain experience besides your current position, in different workstreams: you can join join our less-plastic team or to any other extra/flexible project where you can get to know other business areas and create extra added value.
