Leatherhead Competitive
Permanent & Full-time 1900092V




Digital is changing everything about how consumer goods companies go to market. At Unilever we were at the front of the media revolutions in print advertising in the 1890s, in Radio in the 1930s and in TV in the 1960s. Now we intend to be at the front of the digital revolution.  At the heart of our response to this Digital Revolution is our People Data Centres (PDC) – delivering powerful game changing insights and facilitating one billion relationships with consumers. We need to blend social data with consumer contact centre data with CRM data with search data with ratings & reviews data and so much more. This will allow incredible insights and precision marketing. You can read more about our ambitions in the Sep’16 of the Harvard Business Review and you can see for yourself with our acquisition of the Dollar Shave Club that our company is investing hugely in this space. We need people with passion for digital and analytics, who are not afraid to break convention and want to be a revolutionary within our business.




The PDC Insights Analyst will be part of the Global Beauty & Personal Care PDC team looking after our Skin Cleansing business, which includes brands like Dove, Radox, Lux or Lifebuoy. She/He will be responsible for analysing a wide range of data to help inform marketing, brand and business strategies. She/He will ensure that internal briefs are translated into analytical projects and will be responsible for ensuring the analysis is relevant for the specific brand and market. She/He will be comfortable using a wide range of analytical tools to help with the analysis and be familiar with both digital data such as social and search right through to traditional business data such as penetration and brand equity. The individual will be responsible for providing quantitative and qualitative analysis and insight on projects, whilst working alongside specialist analysts where required. As such the person needs to be comfortable working on their own analytics projects and also be able to work with specialist experts on larger, more complex briefs. She/he will have stakeholders based in London but also in US, Singapore and India so will also need to be comfortable in working with remote teams.
