Why is #HeadofU so important?

Big brands can make big differences. So that’s what we aim to do: at Unilever, we believe in creating a better future every day. With 155.000 colleagues in over 100 countries our motto is: ‘A better world. A better business. A better you’. And that’s not just some fancy slogan. We actively work on improving the lives of our employees, our consumers, our partners and our communities, by listening to them and responding accordingly. Actions speak louder than words.

We expect great things of young  talents. They’re the ones who keep us on our toes, show us the way forward, and inspire us to keep evolving. We want to take them on board and work together. That’s why we’re always looking for ambitious new talents who want to build a brighter future with us. So why not put three young  talents in charge of this task?

A diverse workforce is the only way forward. We believe in individuals and their talents, no matter what colour, shape or experiences this talent carries. We strive to look at things from different perspectives and take various points of view into account, so for us diversity is always a plus! Every year, we put our efforts into attracting young talents, and this year we strive more than ever for a team that shines through diversity and inclusion.

With #HeadofU we want to give you a flavor of what working at Unilever can look like and how your insights and opinions as a young talent matter. We want to empower you to apply for an internship, a traineeship or any other career path at Unilever. Future Leaders of tomorrow, we’re ready for you!
