Our story in the UK & Ireland began well over a century ago. Here, we started small, with a simple yet significant mission to meet every day needs for nutrition, hygiene and personal care. But we wanted to do it in a way that went beyond practicalities. We wanted to make people feel good, look good and be better.
With people all over the nation wanting products that taste, smell and feel great, we’re top of the list every time. In fact, you can find our products in nine out of every ten households in the UK. And, every year, our 6,000 colleagues help us to generate a healthy 2 billion Euros from UK sales. Here, you can create a better career that evolves as you do.

In the UK & Ireland, we put £8 million into pioneering projects such as sustainable development, education, the arts, and nutrition and health.

It’s no surprise with our success in the UK, that we’ve chosen London to be the home of one of our two global headquarters. Here, we develop 40 brands, 16 of which are market leading.
Port Sunlight is home to 750 scientists who have 200 PhDs between them. Our diverse experts work across several disciplines in our six centres specialising in R&D and manufacturing across Home Care, Beauty and Personal Care, Hair and Laundry and Global Fragrance.
In Colworth, our 600 colleagues work across a number of brands, making sure our operations are sustainable and our products are the best they can be. As a global R&D centre with connections beyond science, our innovators are able to network and collaborate with entrepreneurs as well as academics from the nearby Oxford, Cambridge, Cranfield and Nottingham universities.
Our UK & Ireland Head Office in Leatherhead is located in the Surrey countryside, in an award-winning development which uses renewable energy to help power the building. Here our colleagues work across many of our well recognised global brands, as well as some local favourites such as Marmite!

Our Dublin office is located on the outskirts of Dublin beside the beautiful Dublin mountains and has been home to Unilever since 2004. Our colleagues based in Ireland work across our portfolio of global brands such as Dove and Knoor in addition to our local jewels.

The elderly care sector is one of our biggest priorities and wellbeing is at the centre of what we do, for both residents and chefs in the care sector, acknowledging the power of food on mental and physical health.
Recruitment fraud warning
There have recently been a number of recruitment frauds operating in different parts of the world where individuals are contacting job seekers claiming to represent Unilever, offering them roles and then inevitably asking for payments to cover a range of expenses and administration costs.
Unilever - or organisations acting on our behalf – will never ask for payment at any stage in the recruitment process.
This is a long-established, sophisticated fraud used by criminal gangs which has impacted job seekers looking for roles many reputable organisations.
These communications are fraudulent and do NOT originate from Unilever or Unilever’s recruitment partners.
To avoid falling victim to recruitment fraud:
- Do not to respond to unsolicited offers from people you are unfamiliar with
- Do not disclose personal or financial details to anyone you do not know
- Check any documents for poor grammar and spelling as this is often a warning sign of fraud
- Beware of employers or agents using webmail email addresses such as @Yahoo or @Hotmail
- Hover over email addresses to check the sender’s details
- If you are asked for payment of any kind from a recruiter, contact your local police department as this is very likely to be fraud.
