Unique opportunity to be part of a groundbreaking team within Home Care - Cleanipedia, which is Home Care’s biggest owned digital platform and the biggest source of data for the Division.

Born as a SEO cleaning blog, we are transforming Cleanipedia into a global publisher, crafting inspiring and meaningful content for our consumers to consistently engage with. Through the data we collect, we’re crafting important, targeted relationships that deliver the ultimate consumer experience, while driving unparalleled value back into the business.

As the ultimate tool for precision and also a marketing driven by data, we have 25 Cleanipedia sites across 23 markets – giving us direct access to millions of Unilever consumers.

This is not a typical ‘brand management’ role and requires someone that is both inherently digital and adaptable – with the main task being to build up Cleanipedia that it will drive real value for Home Care.
