Unilever restructures Ewloe activities, shifts 400 jobs to India

BANGALORE, INDIA: The Unilever, a personal care major, is planning to move some jobs to Bangalore as part of a restructuring exercise that would involve relocating some 400 high capability roles from Unilever’s IT site in Ewloe in Wales. The company’s R&D centre in Bangalore contributes to brands including Lifebuoy, Pureit, Ponds, Fair and Lovely, Radiant, Omo, Brooke Bond, Lipton, Walls and Knorr.

Around 300 employees work at the site - including 75 scientists, 150 research associates and 50 support staff - specializing in microbiology, virology and microstructure creation. Unilever is changing some elements of the UK business to sustain its competitiveness. The overhaul could result in a net reduction of around 500 Unilever roles in the UK.
