The company will make 100 roles across its marketing, supply chain and category management teams available to MBA graduates and experienced alumni by 2014. It currently offers 25 roles.
The FMCG firm says the roles, which will be split equally across the three divisions, will be combination of new and existing roles that become vacant. The successful applicants will work alongside Unilever’s existing global teams.
Unilever has partnered with 30 top MBA business schools around the world whose MBA alumni and graduates will be given priority access to applying for the jobs available within the FMCG firm.
It allows MBA graduates and alumni from these business schools to view all Unilever’s global vacancies in one place.
Unilever says the partnership reflects a shift in its global talent acquisition strategy “to boost its talent pipeline and ensure it is fit to win in an increasingly competitive and globalised market”.
Paul Maxin, Unilever’s global resourcing director says: “To achieve our vision of doubling the size of our business while reducing our environmental impact, it will be imperative that we recruit experienced, high calibre functional experts with an MBA, who have a global mindset and are already specialists in their field.”
