Our purpose is to create a brighter future with you and for you. That future begins in Research and Development (R&D). If you want to develop into your best self while being part of a global organisation that can take you in any direction you choose, this is for you.
There are always new ways for our products to improve the lives of our consumers and have a positive impact on the planet. In R&D you’ll find out what consumers want and develop the technology to make our innovations come to life. Unilever R&D apprentices follow a structured programme that allows you to put your science education and passion into practice while getting a degree.
Apprenticeship programmes in Research & Development include Food Technologist, Laboratory Technician, Packaging Professional and Data Scientist and many more. Upon completion of these programmes an apprentice will receive a nationally recognised qualification. The availability of these programmes are subject to demand from our business and will not always be available each time we recruit.
