Production Supervisor

Background & Purpose of the Job

On any given day, two billion people use Unilever products to look good, feel good and get more out of life. With more than 400 brands focused on health and well-being, no company touches so many people's lives in so many ways. For us, sustainability is integral to how we do business. With 7 billion people on our planet, the earth's resources can be strained. This means sustainable growth is the only acceptable model of growth for our business. The Unilever Sustainable Living Plan sets out to decouple our growth from our environmental impact, while at the same time increasing our positive social impact.

The site's rich history dates to 1930 and fosters a deep passion for delighting consumers through the Dove Brand. We are committed to developing leaders equipped to handle challenges across the company. We are proud to be the largest bar soap manufacturer in North America and flagship Dove bar soap factory in Unilever.
