Q & A

What is the difference between the Unilever MBA recruitment channel and MBA programme?

Our Global MBA Recruitment Channel recruits for live vacancies where you will be given personal development opportunities within the role, whereas the MBA programme hires a set number of candidates and creates special roles or department rotations for them.

Do you have any application tips?

We want you to find a role that is best for you, so encourage that you read the job description carefully and be realistic about your skills and experience. If you are asked for specific functional experience, carefully consider whether you have the relevant profile.

Keep your CV clear and succinct, ideally no more than two pages.

Thoroughly check your spelling, punctuation and grammar.

Show integrity and decision-making by only applying for roles that you want, are relevant to your experience and will progress your career goals.

Closely match your CV to the job you are applying for and demonstrate how you match the criteria

Do I need to have already graduated from my MBA before applying?

We post full-time opportunities that require the successful candidate to start within a reasonable notice period, usually up to three months depending on the role. If you are still studying, we recommend that you only apply for vacancies when you are close to being available, unless you are an Executive MBA and will remain working throughout your studies.

Do I need to have attended a specific business school?

We welcome applications from all MBA graduates. Unilever also works in partnership with 30 top MBA business schools from around the world to share our opportunities on their job boards.

Are there any work experience opportunities for MBA students who have not yet graduated?

Unfortunately, the Global MBA Recruitment Channel concentrates on permanent opportunities and does not offer internship or project opportunities at present.

Which departments can I join through the MBA recruitment channel?

The MBA recruitment channel offers opportunities in Marketing, Supply Chain and Finance.
