Global Reporting Specialist Team Leader

JOB LOCATION: Sharnbrook / Wageningen



Unilever is one of the worlds largest Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) businesses, with well-known brands such as Knorr, Hellman’s, Dove & Domestos 


At Unilever we have set out to make a difference to those big issues that matter most to our business and to the world. Our goal: transformational change at system level.

Fundamental change to whole systems is needed if we are to make a genuine difference. Our transformational change agenda combines direct action on the UN Sustainable Development Goals with partnerships and external advocacy to create change on a systemic scale – while creating business opportunities and delivering relevant innovations at the same time. Our purpose-led, future-fit Unilever Compass strategy is guiding us and is built on three beliefs: brands with purpose grow; companies with purpose last; and people with purpose thrive.



The global Digital & Data team is the central team in Foods & Refreshment (F&R) Research & Development (R&D) to enable and lead the digital transformation of our organisation. Our core expertise area and responsibility are to provide to users the best practice training for internal developed software, and to ensure data and systems meet mandated standards. Increasingly, we are also strengthening our capability in data engineering, visualisation, reporting and data science to extract the maximum value from data we have and use data to support our digital modelling capabilities. The digital and data team is working closely together with many teams across the entire business from fundamental research programs through product design to answering consumer questions. 


The F&R Digital Data team has created a new Insights & Reporting pillar with the aim to provide the robust data that can power key decisions. The job holder will be part of a global team located in multiple locations and will line manage up to four team members. 


The key features of this role are to monitor the quality of data we have in our digital systems and use that to create user friendly solutions (e.g. reports, dashboards, tools, apps, gadgets). These will answer questions from all parts of our business both internally and to consumer organisations.
