2 Employees Happy High Fiving
Unilever’s future leaders are impactful Entrepreneurs in sustainable marketing and are increasingly focused on driving performance through brands with purpose; brands which provide a positive change to people and to society. We want to reach more people in more places more often with product truth; enabling and empowering people to achieve great things for themselves, for our business, and for the world.

Our brilliantly different brands - brands that have a strong purpose, but where the product itself is also contributing towards a more sustainable planet – such as Knorr, Omo, Dove and Lipton - are growing 30% faster than the rest of our portfolio and delivering over half of our growth.
More about a career in Commercial
Various elements of our commercial teams (like Marketing and Customer & Development) come together in the UFLP Commercial traineeship. We are on a journey of transforming our organization to adopt agile ways of working, through tools, practices and principles – as well as a flexible mindset and culture. Using agile methodologies enable us to continuously plan and prioritize and collaborate across teams/squads and functions.

In this program we want to show you the full range of our commercial departments, which can vary from rotations in Brand Development or Digital Marketing to Key Account Management or Category Management.

For example, in one rotation you could be working on the launch of a new ice cream, improving brand communication or creating a digital campaign for one of our brands together with our partners. You would collaborate with global marketing teams and agencies to make sure consumers choose our brands over competitors, and would work on creating the right assets for brand activations in supermarkets to capture the consumer. In another rotation, you could be building partnerships with a wide range of our customers, which may include supermarkets, superstores, convenience stores, drug stores, discounters, online retailers, ice cream parlors and even theme parks. You would work together closely with your customer to maximize a new product launch, recommending the right range of products, negotiating an annual business plan, or looking for new business opportunities.

​​​​​​​ The limitless opportunities at Unilever allow you to broadly develop yourself as a (business) leader.

"Often in Marketing, people send too much time thinking, when what is needed is confident plan of action. We need to be ready to take risks every now and again, and that is particularly true in the digital space Fortunately, in my work, Unilever provides the freedom to experiment because you either succeed, or you learn how to the next time"
