Unilever Associate Consumer Market Insights Manager - Performance Marketing in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey

Background & Purpose of the Job

As one of the largest consumer packaged goods manufacturers, Unilever spends billions of dollars in media investment around the world. It goes without saying that it is fundamental for the business to understand the impact of these media campaigns and extract learnings that will drive continuous improvement in the media planning processes. But beyond the campaigns of the present, we must also be thinking about the campaigns of tomorrow. We must investigate new and emerging media platforms to understand the role they play within the entire media mix and how they deliver against brand measures and return on investment (ROI). Furthermore, in this digital age, media is increasingly fragmented and complicated by the integration of data into media. Data driven media/marketing is here to stay, and the Connect Center of Excellence at Unilever is here to help marketers make sense of how they can deploy data driven marketing to its fullest to drive impact for their businesses.

Within this vital subset of our Consumer Market Insights (CMI) group, we are looking for a Connector to be embedded within the U.S. Hair category team, identifying the impact and performance of Hair’s media investments to help drive growth, while providing expertise to the Hair team for future campaign success.
