Job Description

What's this, a Recruiter suggesting you should apply for a job they are advertising? Quelle surprise.

Not a great start. Even worse, I am going to give more recruiter spiel talking about "multiple award winning client", "fantastic opportunity", "Innovative business" and other clichés. If you get to the end of this advert and like the sound of the job, it's not the copy writing that has sold it!

The "multiple award winning" company? It has awards, 30 of them to be exact. In the last two years. That's not including product awards, this is just "best place to work" awards.

The "fantastic opportunity"? This newly created role has been formed to help assist the company with its growth plans for the next three years. The plan? 100% turnover increase. They need your help. We conducted a small, informal survey of approx. 40 people who work(ed) for this company - 95% said it was fantastic (mainly attributed to the autonomy and freedom given to the employees).

The "Innovative business"? They put about 75% of their profits back into R&D (this role falls within this function). You won't be short of funding, so probably a good thing to have plenty of ideas.

The details: You will lead a team of Process Specialists and Senior Packaging Technologists to ensure the newly created Innovation team are able to translate their thoughts into the factory.

Your background? FMCG experience in technical/R&D with a related degree.

I have a full and detailed job spec to discuss with you so if the above sounds appealing, send your CV through today and we can discuss further*.

*clichés are kept to a minimum when discussing on the phone.
