Some of our employees give you an insight into the opportunities in R&D in Unilever.

Career profile: Yann

"The most satisfying thing about working in Unilever R&D is the diversity of people, both in terms of cultures and backgrounds. I might find myself brainstorming an issue with ten scientists, all experts in different fields – it's fascinating."

Career profile: Rosemary

"Based in Durban, I work on the spreads category in a regional role that covers Africa, the Middle East and Turkey. One part of my job involves supporting the development of nutrition and health-related communication targeted at health influencers (scientists, health authorities and healthcare professionals)."

Career profile: Karina

"Working across Latin America, I lead on a group of development projects from a technical point of view. That’s mainly for spreads and dressings, and focuses on improvement as well as innovation."

Career profile: Carol

"Working within the Safety & Environmental Assurances Centre (SEAC) at Colworth, we’re responsible for the safety of all our products globally, that is both Food and Home & Personal Care products. Which means anything new and innovative, any concerns or queries about existing products, it all comes through us."

Career profile: Sjef

"I work at Unilever’s Global and Regional Product Development Centre for Structured Emulsions in Vlaardingen as team leader for the pilot plant organisation.
