The Unilever Future Leaders Program (UFLP)is a global initiative enabling Unilever to build a strong talent pipeline that will support and lead our business growth. UFLP is a 36-month rotational leadership development program for which we recruit top-performing undergraduate talent who demonstrate the potential to become managers within our business within 3 years. It’s designed to grow you into a manager, through hands-on learning alongside world-class experts. You’ll be hired into a function and develop your leadership skills by working on live projects which offer you all the experience you need to become ready for your first management role. At the heart of it, it’s about developing tomorrow’s leaders, today. 

 From Day 1, our Management Trainees (MTs) take on real business challenges within their own function and across the organization. Each of our MTs will gain an understanding of how we make and how we sell our products, become immersed in our sustainability initiatives, understand and experience first-hand our global markets, and build people management skills and financial acumen. Along the way you will develop deep core professional skills and leadership skills, and build a robust support network. On top of all that, you will have a lot of fun along the journey.

We look for people who want to get to grips with the inner workings of a vast business and a desire to understand how it works. It’s about commitment, real people skills and a deep-seated interest in the business as a whole. You’ll become part of a leading-edge company, where you’ll

work with outstanding brands and outstanding people to drive sustainable business growth.

So here’s how it works:

  •          36-Month Rotation Program(4 Rotations on average)
  •          1 Functional Roadmap Based on Your Business Area
  •          1 Retail Experience - First Assignment is always learning the heart of our business, working with our products at the point of sale
  •          Formal Training + Informal Learning
  •          Mentorship + Exposure to Senior Leaders + Peer Network
  •          High Levels of Performance and Delivery
  •          Potential to Reach Manager-Level Upon Successful Program Graduation

  • Ability to take key data points and derive them into actionable insights
  •          Business Acumen
  •          Geographic Mobility

So what’s the next step? 

The first thing for you to do is decide which business area interests you the most. Unilever is such a broad company, there’s plenty to select from. But don’t worry if you find it hard to choose, you’ll get exposure to other functions during the program. Regardless of which business unit you work in, you’ll be part of a team at Unilever that’s working to create better futures every day.
