Finance in Hindustan Unilever Limited (HUL) provides a unique opportunity to get involved in the totality of its operations, add value and see the results of your actions.

Broadly HUL finance offers three streams of roles with 60% of roles being in Business Partnering:

Business Partnering

Making the right career choices is hard, sticking to these choices is probably harder. My advice: Go on and seek your true symphony that radiates far beyond the strings that score it.

Developing an understanding of the strategies that drive our growth, you’ll be at the forefront of how we evolve to meet our goals. For example, our finance business partner is a partner for value i.e. unlock growth and margin potential across the value chain (effective partnering). This means connecting various data sets using analytics and information and making the journey from hindsight to insight to foresight. One can also call it the journey from insight to intervention.

Controlling

Financial Controlling is the fundamental building block of our function. A role here is your opportunity to develop your financial accounting, reporting, and control skills as well as providing objectivity and challenge to the business. This will give you broad exposure to the rest of the business as you build partnerships with the business as a trusted change agent, actively driving the risk management agenda for the business.

Expertise

Expertise roles allow us to create value across our business and they are a wonderful opportunity to enable experiences which can give you very distinct experiences. Deployed well in our business, expertise is a major source of value.
