Unilever Uncovered: What it’s like working here
Unilever is the place where you can bring your purpose to life through the work that you do, creating a better business and a better world. You will work on loved brands and help improve the lives of our consumers and communities.
Together we can change the way the world does business
The Unilever Sustainable Living Plan is our blueprint for achieving our vision to grow our business, whilst decoupling our environmental footprint from our growth and increasing our positive social impact. Our sustainable business model is making a difference to millions of people’s lives and to our environmental impact, and we will keep working to make these contributions greater.
Bring your real-self to work
At Unilever we combine our differences to achieve greater things. You can start or pursue a career across different cultures and levels of seniority where you can work on making sustainable living commonplace.
Develop into your best self
Get inspired by leaders and peers and create life-shaping experiences for yourself. We offer a working environment where you will be mentored and nurtured by bright minds and purpose-led leaders. Use your skills and knowledge, and the tools we provide you to experience all that Unilever can offer across brands and around the world. You have the ability to craft a flexible – and global – career.
Normalising flexible working
In 2016 our business in Australia and New Zealand declared ‘all roles flex’ and are focusing on normalising flexible working for men – key to managing caring responsibilities and empowering women. We are also unlocking job share opportunities across our business, allowing our people to balance personal commitments or their own businesses alongside their career at Unilever.
Diversity & inclusion
Diversity and Inclusion at Unilever is about embracing differences, creating possibilities and progressing together to make a sustainable business. Using the Unilever standards of leadership as part of development, we focus on building on people’s strengths, which brings greater energy and impact.
Workplace gender equality
At Unilever we also believe in paying for performance with clear reward policies and have a longstanding commitment to equal pay for equal work. Our compensation structures are intended to be gender neutral, with any pay differences between employees in similar jobs fairly reflecting levels of individual performance and skill.
A supportive and inclusive work environment
At Unilever we believe in the importance of workplace diversity and we are focused on providing a supportive and inclusive environment for all employees regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identification. We want all employees to bring their best authentic self to work every day.
Reward at Unilever
We are building a culture, in which every employee is encouraged to grow to his or her full potential. We have developed a performance-based reward structure that recognises people have delivered results and have the right values for our business.
Purpose, values & principles
We aim to make a positive impact in many ways: through our brands, our commercial operations and relationships, through voluntary contributions, and through the various other ways in which we engage with society. Conducting our operations with integrity and with respect for the many people, organisations and environments our business touches has always been at the heart of our corporate responsibility.
Our culture promotes respect. Respect among each other, but also respect to those outside Unilever and for our environment. Because our people are fundamental to the way we do business, they’re at the centre of everything we do. Their professional fulfilment, their work/life balance, their ability to contribute equally as part of a diverse workforce, are issues to which we give priority.
We grow as a company by growing our people. This insight is behind all our efforts to keep our people fulfilled and committed. It’s also why we stay connected with – and connect together – our employees around the world, conducting surveys and ‘pulse checks’ which then feed into the future direction of our business.
