Unilever Recruitment 2021 Finance Controller, Tea Business

Unilever Recruitment 2021 is ongoing for the position of Finance Controller, Tea Business at Lagos, Nigeria so application is hereby invited from the suitably qualified Nigerians who possess all the requirements listed below.

Unilever is proud of its Tea business, the biggest in the world, with world-class purpose-driven brands such as Lipton, PG Tips, and Pukka. Recently, Unilever decided to separate the Tea business to ensure it can best achieve its potential.

Unilever is currently reviewing several options for separation, including a demerger, an initial public offering, disposal, or through partnership models. The Tea businesses in India and Indonesia and the partnership interests in the ready-to-drink Tea joint ventures will be retained.

The balance of the Tea brands and geographies and all Tea estates, with generated revenues of €2 billion in 2019, is growing and profitable with proven potential both pre-and post-COVID-19. As a standalone entity, the Tea company remains number one in the world and is even better positioned to lead the industry and take full advantage of the opportunities in the category, with more focus and entrepreneurship driving greater growth and value.

The current vision for the Tea company is to champion a tastier, healthier, more sustainable world of plant-based drinking. Purposeful thinking will be the core anchor of the business, its brands as well as its culture, and enables simple and agile decision making, supports an entrepreneurial mindset, and is driven by a passion for our consumers.

As we move through this journey towards separation, we are seeking employees with a passion for exciting entrepreneurial experiences, who want to pursue unique career opportunities, and who have a desire to be an integral part of building the bright future of this plant-based company.
