Future Careers in the UK

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 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.

Did you know?

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

Maria Inguanta
Current role: Global Beauty & Personal Care – Unilever Legal
Former: Technology Management UFLP

“Technology is the heartbeat of Unilever and is present in everything that we do. Its because of this that as a Technology Management UFLP you will get to experience many different areas of the business and insight across the company that is rarely afforded to those in the other functions.  Not only will you get to partner different functions, but you will also get to work closely with many of our technology collaborators including Microsoft, Google, Salesforce and many more. You will also get to experience areas of innovation that Unilever is investing in such as Artificial Intelligence, Virtual Reality, and Predictive Analytics. Through this, you will play a key role in Unilever’s drive to innovate for success whilst at the same time developing your own skills and experience. ”

Momeena Khatun
Current role: Digital Commerce Technology Analyst
L6 Digital & Technology Solutions Apprentice

“I value the responsibilities I have been given as an apprentice, far more than I had expected, working alongside people at all levels of the business. I feel included as an individual and am supported by internal networking groups such as Women In Tech. Unilever encourages self-development alongside formal job roles, and has flexible work practices which support people in different circumstances. Working in the technology function, you get exposed to a range of projects, teams, and processes. This has given me the opportunity to contribute to Unilever’s innovation strategies and the digital landscape including the metaverse (e.g. Virtual Reality). I am excited to be involved in the latest technology trends, helping to shape the future and contributing to Unilever’s growth.”

Matthew Spedding
Current role: Global Supply Chain Manager, Beauty & Personal Care
Former: Supply Chain UFLP

“No career or job in Supply Chain is ever the same. We’re a team that features a huge amount of diversity - in people, roles, locations and workspaces and that is what makes it a great area to work in! I joined the business working in Leeds on a European project, working to source deodorants, like Lynx and Dove, in a smarter way. Just 12 months later, I moved to the European HQ in Rotterdam where I helped develop our newest (and tastiest) Ice Cream products! Along with variety, the responsibility given to each graduate is incredible. I was trusted to lead the team responsible for ensuring that the millions of pounds of orders we receive each day are processed accurately and on time. A lot of pressure, but you can always rely on a great support network of mentors, managers and experienced teammates.”
