Hello marketeers

Welcome to Unilever’s Marketing Philosophy

At Unilever – we believe the most dangerous place for a marketer to be is behind a desk! With our marketing philosophy, we will reveal our passion and compassion for the world we serve and immerse ourselves in what it means to be human.

We have three principles:

  • To GET REAL - getting into the real world where the action is.
  • To DO GOOD - be led by our purpose to have positive impact.
  • And to always BE UNMISSABLE - iconic, unparalleled in our presence, unafraid to start the bigger conversations and committed to the whole world witnessing it.

The people behind the brands

What makes Unilever unique is that we can talk to people from all over the world. I start my day by talking with people in Japan and Australia. And I finish it by speaking to those in Colombia and Canada. I think that makes it so exciting.

We launched a product that helped consumers cut their water requirement drastically – from three buckets of water per wash to just one bucket. That’s one of my proudest moments because we didn’t just show a keen eye for what our consumers needed, we actually made a difference in their lives.

I’m so proud of the project I did last year on Dove Body Lotion. By getting close to our consumers, we realized the tension around body shaming, and hence focused on this to educate people about loving their body irrespective of their shape and size.

Who are we looking for?

We’re looking for purposeful people, who bring their best inner and outer game with them. People who have the key standards of leadership for the job.
