Job Description

Manufacturing bespoke, technical packaging solutions for the food industry, this business strives to stay at the forefront of innovation and pride themselves on the high level of service they provide to their clients.

Currently recruiting for a Technical Product Application Manager to join their team, you will be responsible for focusing on the development of new products to market. You will work closely with R&D on strategy, once a new product has been created, it will be your responsibility to run trials on sealing machines on site with customers based across the UK and Europe. If successful, you will then need to train the sales team so that they can sell the product on.

You must be happy to travel as around 50% of your time will be spent traveling throughout Europe, mostly within a two-hour flight duration. The majority of the rest of your time will be spent on site in the factory in South Wales, so it is important that you reside within a commutable distance of the plant.

Ideally, you will have a chemical / engineering background with an understanding of resins / polymers as this will really accelerate your learning and development.

Experience of running packaging on sealing machines within food markets is ideal. Technical knowledge of flexible or plastic packaging is also required (high barrier film, laminates, shrink bags/film, thermoforming, injection moulding etc).

If you are looking to join a stable and growing business who truly look after their employees and offer personal development programmes, don’t miss this opportunity! Apply now!
