“A CAREER IN COMMUNICATIONS AT UNILEVER OFFERS AN UNRIVALLED CHANCE TO BE PART OF A TALENTED TEAM WITH A TRULY GLOBAL AGENDA.”
Unilever’s Communications teams ensure our stakeholders stay informed about our business. Within the Communications function, teams are focused on communicating clearly and effectively to different audiences inside and outside the company – from employees to investors, journalists, jobseekers, NGOs, partners, customers and consumers.
It’s their role to protect Unilever’s reputation and share information about our products, goals and values.
A career within Communications at Unilever offers a chance to be part of a dynamic function in a fast-moving business.
Best known for our household-name brands, Unilever is also earning a reputation for our commitment to sustainability, and our Communications teams are playing a vital part in spreading the word.
We’ve got a compelling story to share about how we’re helping more than a billion people improve their health and wellbeing, while halving our environmental footprint and ensuring our agricultural raw materials come from sustainable sources.
Our Media Relations team is responsible for liaising with the world’s press, while our External Affairs specialists work closely with governments, NGOs and agencies such as campaign groups and think tanks.
