Follow-up Comment #1:

Your problem is that you want to run multiple commands on each -execdir (both
unzip and uuidgen), but -execdir can only run a single command.  The solution
is to wrap things in yet another command - a shell that can then exec your
multiple commands.

find -name '*.zip' -execdir sh -c 'unzip "$@" -d `uuidgen -r`' sh {} ;
