Job Description

If you think a newly created role in a brand new department where you can develop new and unique ways of working sounds interesting, then please read on. However, if you don’t like being asked questions, please don’t read on (you will be asked your thoughts from day one in this business).

You will be working in a category that has so much potential growth; the business has aimed to double in size over the next few years. You will play a key part in that growth in a company that reinvests over three quarters of its profits back into R&D – who wouldn’t want to be involved in that?

They have won various employer awards over the years but actually having been to their sites, the most impressive aspect was seeing how happy the employees were to work there – sounds like a cliché but this has been the case every time I have visited them.

As the Global Packaging Leader you will work with senior stakeholders within R&D, Supply Chain and Marketing to ensure a strong pipeline packaging development projects. You will also have responsibility to manage, support and develop the existing packaging team, making sure that packaging specifications are met and in line with best practice.

You will ideally be/have the following to be considered for this role:

  • Excellent people skills, as cheesy as this sounds you need to have proven leadership experience, a real people person with a genuine passion for making things happen
  • Be able to provide examples of your innovations, ideally those that you have thought of yourself and ran with all the way through to completion
  • Professional packaging qualification

So, if you’ve enjoyed reading about this role, imagine how you would feel working in it. Apply today!
