Unilever UFLP Graduate Finance in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia

UFLP Graduate Finance


How do you go beyond the huge figures associated with multi-billion pound brands and get to the heart of what they mean? And how would you transform a product that’s already doing impressively into something that’s truly astounding? What will you do? Finance at Unilever is about a lot more than numbers. It’s a craft that requires you to get to the heart of multi-billion pound brands. People will seek your advice on brand development, pricing strategy and more – and they’ll trust you to see past the figures to the bigger picture. You’ll be involved in evaluating the benefits of innovation on major brands like Dove and Pot Noodle, and be in the thick of pricing strategy and investment decisions. Over three placements you’ll get you up to speed with our operations, processes and risks. You’ll get a chance to work in cross-functional teams with other business functions. By getting involved with financial accounting, management reporting and analysis, you’ll experience real work straight away. You will be fully supported in studying for the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) qualification. Who is it for? We do not require a financial/economic degree, but we do require people with strong analytical skills. We look for people who want to get to grips with the inner workings of a vast business and a desire to understand how it works. It’s about commitment, real people skills and a deep-seated interest in the business as a whole.

Finance has direct input into Unilever's long, medium and short-term plans as well as our cost reduction programmes and innovation projects.

You'll be part of a team that's continuously trying to bring products to consumers that meet their needs and at a price they can afford.
