​​​​​​The Unilever Future Leaders Programme (UFLP) is a 3-year scheme designed to prepare graduates for business leadership roles. The programme consists of a number of placements within and across functions, formal training, business mentorship and a short experience in field sales.

Right to work
To be eligible for the UFLP, all candidates must have the continuous right to work in the UK and any offer of employment is conditional upon this requirement being satisfied. Unilever UK do not provide sponsorship to undergraduates and graduates trying to obtain the right to work in the UK.

We accept all degree level and discipline qualifications, except for schemes in Research and Development (R&D) and Supply Chain.

Research & Development:

For R&D, we require a strong technical qualification in a Chemical, Biological, Physical or Food-related Science. We also accept Chemical/Material and Engineering-related disciplines.

Supply Chain:

For Supply Chain, we require a strong technical and manufacturing background in Science, Technology, or Engineering, with preference towards a Masters Degree in Engineering, or specific Supply Chain related discipline.

*Please note: our UFLP starts each September, and we open for applications once a year (around Q4) and work on a rolling basis, which means that as soon as we reach the required number of applications, we will close the process for that role/business area. Therefore, we advise applying as early as possible once applications go live to avoid disappointment.*

We offer a wide variety of opportunities based upon your career aspirations. Choose the right career path within our seven business functions (please only apply for one function):
