Technology Management Industrial and Summer Placements
Unilever is one of the largest fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) companies in the world. We make some of the world’s most loved brands: Dove, Lynx, PG Tips, Ben & Jerrys, Sure, Magnum, Knorr and Hellmann’s, to name a few. Unilever takes care of the whole supply chain of its products, from development and sourcing right through to production, marketing and distribution. 168,000 people globally produce brands that are sold in 190 countries and used by two billion people daily.
Technology is now an integrated part of all of our lives – employees and consumers alike – and as a result it’s at the heart of everything we do at Unilever, opening new possibilities and propelling us into the future. Technology touches everything from the sourcing and distribution of sustainable ingredients to the marketing, measurement and selling of our brands on platforms like Facebook, Twitter and partner websites. Our people have the opportunity to help build a bright future for our world, making a big impact every day, on a local level, across Europe and the globe. We have a proven tradition of developing our own purpose driven leaders and encourage innovative thinking.
What we look for
Our Technology Management (TM) Industrial and Summer Placements are specially designed to give you the experience you’re hungry for – before you even graduate! You don’t need a technical degree to join TM, we accept applications from any degree discipline. More important is ambition and a passion for the most recent technological developments, some impressive strategic thinking and business awareness.
We have a strong performance culture with challenging goals, future focussed feedback and drive for innovation and ambition in an inclusive informal environment. We will push you to achieve your potential and make a big business impact where you learn from the best. First-hand experience - it’s the fastest way to learn.
Students must have completed the penultimate year of their undergraduate degree by the time they start their placement and be returning to study after their placement.
Our Technology Management Summer and Industrial Placements are a chance to showcase your thinking and skills, with total support from a line manager and a buddy. Students who successfully pass our Summer Placement programme will be fast-tracked to the final stage of the selection process for the Unilever Future Leaders Programme – The Discovery Centre Day. Top performers on the industrial placement may be offered a place directly onto our Future Leaders Programme, starting when you complete your degree, without needing to apply.
We also have excellent benefits to support you through your placement including a salary of £20,000, 20 days annual leave and online training.
