Our R&D People

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: Karina

"Working across Latin America, I lead on a group of development projects from a technical point of view, as well as innovation, to improve dressings"

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."
