Every day, we challenge ourselves to push boundaries and explore new possibilities. Our innovations not only impact the way we work, they are also shaping the future of a high-growth industry: Employer Branding.
As a consumer brand attracts customers, an employer brand attracts employees. Universum was founded long before Employer Branding was even a concept. What started as a paper-based survey in Sweden to give students more visibility into potential employers, is now an online career assessment taken by one million students and young professionals in over 50 countries each year.
We think of ourselves as cupids. We help the right young professionals and employers find each other – creating more fulfilling careers, more successful companies, and a better world.
Welcome to our Universe!
Sales & Account Management
Make a difference. Build better organisations and careers.
As part of Universum’s sales team, you will navigate through unchartered territories. Educating organisations on the value of Employer Branding and helping them make more informed decisions through market intelligence.
By attracting the right future talent, your clients will be able to build more engaged, productive workforces and more satisfying careers for their employees.
Employer Brand Research & Consulting
Understand the future. Make the best companies even better.
If you’re curious and can transform data into compelling insights, the research or consulting team could be your match.
Each year, Universum surveys nearly one million students and young professionals across more than 50 countries to uncover their future career aspirations, expectations and perceptions of employers.
The breadth and depth of this survey equates to a lot of data points. As part of Universum’s research team, you will analyse, identify trends and extract insights from all of this data to build internal, client and market intelligence.
As part of Universum’s consulting team, you’ll help both household brands and lesser-known organisations diagnose their challenges, identify opportunities and execute on strategies to capture top talent and build a more engaged and productive workforce.
Whether it’s facilitating focus groups, analysing qualitative and quantitative findings or delivering recommendations to executive teams. Our consultants are curious, bold and love a challenge.
Employer Brand Activation
Explore new possibilities.
From Facebook to LinkedIn, Wechat to Snapchat, and WSJ to Le Monde, the Activation team covers all media channels to help brands find the best people for their organisations. Using Universum’s global research, the Activation team builds data-driven communication strategies and campaigns deployed across channels.
Working on both strategic and tactical projects, our Activation team is full of creative, fast-paced and visionary storytellers.
Product & Engineering
Build Beautiful Things. Deliver with Excellence.
Product & Engineering teams at Universum live in the future. It’s pretty cool (there are hoverboards FYI). It’s also challenging as you have to build beautiful products on time for demand and behaviours that may not exist yet. You also have to craft compelling stories to bring internal teams and clients along in the journey towards this future that you are co-creating.
If you think about users first, write crisp code, design beautiful things or can turn awesome ideas into reality, you’ll fit right in.
B2B & B2C Marketing
Marketing. Capture and Inform.
If you’re creative and a brilliant communicator, one of our Marketing streams could be your fit.
