This is a multi-faceted role where you will report in to the Group Head of Packaging and be responsible for all packaging throughout the group of businesses that our client owns.

Based at Head Office, but being a key part of the whole global business, a significant part of your role will involve attending trials and meetings throughout Europe.

You will be a naturally creative person, constantly on the look out for new packaging designs and materials and you will work closely with NPD to inspire products based on packaging ideas.

This role requires a large amount of technical knowledge. You will have a great source of experience to use when looking in to what sort of designs and materials could work with existing kit. For totally new packaging you will have the strength of character to persuade senior management why they should invest in new equipment to enable this to be a part of the next range of products.

You will have an excellent, up to date knowledge of the food formats currently in use in stores. Having a proven, well established working relationship with the packaging businesses is essential so that when they come up with a new idea you are on their distribution list.

So, if your consider yourself to be a specialist in the packaging industry and can cope with the high pressure that is a trademark of working in food manufacturing then we would love to hear from you!
